Swiggy doesn’t have a salary based payment system. It pays you for the No of deliveries you have done. The more deliveries you do, the more you earn.

Amount per each delivery

You get paid based on 3 things for each delivery

  2. Waiting Time Pay
  3. Customer Pay

Travel Pay

Swiggy divides the travel into 2 Parts. First mile and last mile, the first mile is the travel between you and the restaurent and the second mile is travel between the restaurant and the customer.

Swiggy pays travel pay based on Distance or Time.

It pays Rs 4 per KM for first 4 Kms & Rs 6 per KM after the first 4 Kms if it pays based on distance. Or pays 1 Re per 1 minute if it pays based on time. It normally pays according to a higher amount.

For example,

If it needs to pay Rs 40 for distance and Rs 34 for time, then it pays according to distance as it is higher. Or it pays according to time if the time taken is more than 40 mins which is Rs 40.

Waiting Time Pay

At times, you need to wait at the restaurant for the food to get a cook. Swiggy pays you for your waiting time at the restaurant.

Here is your Waiting Time Rates.

6 – 10 Mins Rs 10
10 – 15 Mins Rs 15

20+ Mins Rs 25

Customer Pay

Finally, after delivering to the customer you get extra Rs 5.

You get an extra Rs 20 per order on rainy days & also additional Rs 20 for batched order, means delivering more than 1 order at the same time. You also get paid more for late nights.

Leaving all of them aside, you normally get Rs 30 – 120 per each delivery depending on the effort and time you invested in delivering.

Weekly & Monthly Incentives

Other than the money paid per each delivery, Swiggy also pays you weekly & monthly incentives depending on the conditions. Incentives are like gifts for you from Swiggy.

To receive incentives, you need to have a minimum no of deliveries. Also, you should log-in to the app on time. And you should not cancel more than 2 orders in a week.

Incentives will be changing from city to city & from time to time. There are no constant incentives. But I can give an example of how much you get paid for incentives

Example:- These are just examples, not permanent. Incentives may be different for you in your city.



Looking at these many options may confuse you. The process is simple, if you earn more then you even get more gifts from Swiggy called incentives.

How much you can earn from Swiggy?


As a Full-Time Delivery Boy, you can expect 8 – 20 Orders daily. For example, you are completing an average of 14 orders every day.

For each order, you can earn Rs 30 – 120. Let’s assume, you are getting Rs 60 as an average.

60 * 14 = 840. So you can earn an average of Rs 840 per each day.

Which is 840 * 30 = 25,200 per month

We also have weekly and monthly incentives, which will be helpful for your petrol and maintenance changes.


As a Part-Time Delivery Boy, you can expect 4 – 12 deliveries each day. For example, let’s think there are 7 deliveries each day. & you are earning an average of Rs 60 per each order.

Which is 60 * 7 = 420 per day. & 420 * 30 = 12,600 per each month.

Weekly & monthly incentives will be helpful for petrol and maintenance charges.

Even though you don’t have any orders, you can still get Rs 400 for Full-Time & Rs 200 for Part-Time as a daily minimum amount. Though that situation is too rare, you have the option.

Unlike other jobs, you can withdraw your salary every week. But also remember that getting incentives are not such easy. You need to work daily and also cannot cancel more than 3 orders no matter what.

Delivery jobs are not so easy. You need to find addresses, respond well to customers & also work in sunny and rainy days. So the money you earn is not easy money and the work you do is worthy to receive that amount.
