Salaries for Swiggy Delivery Guys

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

  1. Travel Pay
  2. Waiting Time Pay
  3. Customer Pay

Travel Pay

Swiggy pays travel pay based on Distance or Time.

The distance from you to the restaurant is called the first mile & the distance from restaurant to the customer is called the last mile.

You get paid Rs 4 per KM for first 4 KM & Rs 6 per KM after the first 4 KM. This is the same for both the first mile & the last mile.

You get paid Re 1 per minute if Swiggy pays considering time.

Swiggy calculates both Distance & Time. You will get paid according to distance or time for which is the highest.

For example,

if the distance for the first mile is 1km and distance for the last mile is 1 km, then you get paid Rs 4 for each km. So you get Rs 8.

But due to traffic, you took 12mins to reach, then you get Rs 12 considering time as the highest. But you can’t slow down intentionally, Swiggy is smart enough to calculate.

Waiting Time Pay

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

0 - 5 MinsRs 5
6 - 10 MinsRs 10
10 - 15 MinsRs 15
15 - 20 MinsRs 20
20+ MinsRs 25

Customer Pay

Finally, after delivering to the customer you get extra Rs 4.

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.

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 guy, you can expect 8 – 20 Orders daily. For an 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.

Let’s assume you are getting an extra of Rs 300 each week as weekly incentive & an extra Rs 500 as monthly incentives.

Just combining the incentives, you can get around Rs 1,500 per month. Which will be helpful to your petrol and bike maintenance charges.


As a Part-Time delivery guy, you can expect 4 – 12 deliveries each day. For example, let’s think there are 8 deliveries each day. & you are earning an average of Rs 60 per each order.

Which is 60 * 8 = 480 per day. & 480 * 30 = 14,400 per each month.

Combining weekly & monthly incentives, you can expect Rs 1,000 every month.

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.
