How to get paid with FastPay on DoorDash
After you sign up for FastPay, you’ll have to wait until one of your deliveries is marked as “Complete”. This means that your customer has accepted their order and you’ve been paid by DoorDash.
After your delivery is marked as complete and your earnings show up in your “Earnings” tab, you can cash out using FastPay. Click “Cash Out”, select “FastPay”, and click “Continue”. You’ll have to enter your bank account information, and DoorDash will deposit your earnings directly into your bank account. Your earnings will arrive between 2 and 5 business days after you cash out.
Automatic Cash Out With DoorDash’s FastPay
If you have Automatic Cash Out turned on, your earnings will automatically be deposited into your bank account as soon as they become available. Automatic Cash Out won’t decrease the amount you’re owed per delivery. You’ll have to keep in mind that the earnings you receive with Automatic Cash Out are final and you won’t be able to dispute them if they arrive late. You can sign in to your DoorDash account, select “Dashboard”, and select “Pay”. Find the “Automatic Cash Out” section and toggle the switch to “On”.

You can find the “Earnings” tab on the main menu of your DoorDash app to see how much you’ve earned. Once your earnings are available, you can cash out by clicking “Cash Out” in the main menu and then “Cash Out Now”. You can also cash out manually by clicking “Cash Out”, “Select Amount”, and “Cash Out Now”.
Tips for cashing out more quickly with FastPay on DoorDash
Always be available: The more deliveries you accept, the faster you’ll be able to cash out. Being available for more deliveries means that you’ll have more opportunities to earn money faster. If you’re not available, however, you won’t have the chance to earn money.
Drive during busy hours: Deliveries during rush hour, lunch, and around major holidays tend to be more profitable than during normal hours. If you wait until there aren’t as many deliveries available, you’ll have less time to earn money and less time to cash out once you’ve earned enough.
Don’t wait until you’re at the minimum amount to cash out: The minimum amount you need to cash out will vary depending on the location you’re working in. It’s best to cash out as soon as you’ve earned enough so that you can get your money as quickly as possible.
Stay mindful of your earnings level: You want to make sure that you’re not accepting deliveries that will cost you more than they’re worth. If you’re driving towards the end of the day, it’s a good idea to wait for deliveries that are worth more than $20.
Is it safe to use FastPay on DoorDash?
Absolutely. FastPay is completely free to use and doesn’t even require you to sign up for direct deposit. You’ll have to enter your bank account information when you cash out manually, but it’s completely secure and you won’t have to worry about someone stealing your bank account information.
As long as you’re able to accept deliveries and earn the minimum amount required, you can get paid with FastPay on DoorDash. You don’t have to worry about signing up for direct deposit and you don’t have to wait until the end of the week to get your earnings. With FastPay, you’ll have access to your earnings as soon as they’re available and can put them to good use.
