You can find the exact earnings in Glovo in different voivodeships on our interactive maps below.
Glovo is a mobile app that allows customers to order a variety of products from restaurants, as well as small and large stores (not only groceries). It is a versatile service, offering "whatever you want" deliveries, from food to everyday items.
Glovo is available in nearly 300 cities across the country, making it the largest platform of its kind in Poland. Such a large number of serviced cities means that Glovo needs more and more couriers - and we will show you how much do glovo riders make for such work.
While working as Glovo courier, you’ll be accepting delivery orders through the app and delivering them to the final destination. In practice, 90% of times you’ll deliver food from restaurants, while the remaining 10% are market groceries or other, small parcels (e.g., keys). You pick up the order / package from point A and deliver it to point B.
Glovo differs from other delivery apps by the necessity to book working hours in advance. 2 times per week, the calendar refreshes in the app, and you choose your preferred days and working hours. You can start in any location. Orders will come onto your phone, which you easily accept with 1 click. After accepting, you get the data from where and where to deliver the order, and the customer sees where you currently are (if you’ve ever ordered an Uber, then you know how it looks).
Glovo is also unique due to cash payments. Customers can also pay by card, but cash is very popular here. Part of this cash Glovo will allow you to “withdraw” - in practice, it’s Glovo’s way to pay a part of your earnings daily, before the final settlement arrives, which is a nice gesture. It is therefore mandatory to have some change with you while working. The remaining earnings are paid out weekly, usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays, for the full previous calendar week (Monday - Sunday).
It is therefore flexible and fast - an ideal option for students and people who want to earn quickly in their spare time.
There is a saying that while walking a dog, you have an average of 3 legs each. We want to say that the average earnings in Glovo in Poland and in individual voivodeships give an overall picture, but in practice, a Glovo delivery person can earn more - and does not have to work beyond measure to achieve it.
We will show you a few examples of Glovo couriers who chose Appjobs as their partner. The screenshot below comes from our Glovo partner panel and shows 15 couriers who earned the most in the period of 4.12.2023 - 10.12.2023. Let's check how much time it took them:
As you can see, most couriers worked around 40 hours, which is a standard “full-time” job (8 hours a day X 5 days a week = 40 hours total). With about 40 hours of work, average Glovo earnings per hour were about 35 PLN per hour gross.
Interestingly, only 2 couriers out of 15 earned below “three at the front”, meaning an average of 30 PLN per hour. So it can be assumed that Glovo earnings around 30-35 PLN per hour are more or less the standard, but nothing prevents you from earning significantly more, and that’s without overworking on a 1.5-time or 2-time job.
The statistics do not show a rule that “the more you work, the higher the average” - yes, the record holder worked over 80 hours (i.e., a double shift), but his average was 35.80 PLN per hour, while the record holder earned almost 49 PLN per hour, and worked less than 41 hours. How is this possible?
Great question: how is it that a courier who worked as much as 85 hours has lower average hourly earnings than one who worked 41? Shouldn't Glovo reward those more engaged couriers? Of course it should, in its own interest - and Glovo does, but hours are not everything.
So how does Glovo reward engaged couriers exactly? Such actions can be divided into 2 groups:
1️⃣. Various bonuses that increase the amount of earnings
Those are simply additional cash (earnings) coming onto your courier account:
2️⃣. Quality indicators that Glovo algorithm looks at
The more the Glovo algorithm “likes” you, the more attractive orders it will offer you. Some of them are visible in the screenshot above. Apart from the hours worked (i.e., orders completed), these are:
Every Glovo courier who chooses us as their partner receives materials about how the Glovo algorithm works. We explain in detail and with examples how the Glovo algorithm works and how to make it "like" you - and thus receive more and better orders, resulting in higher earnings!
After rules are explained, couriers get a summary of their statistics 2 times per week in the form of a ranking, along with suggestions on what to improve to get "liked" more by the algorithm. You can regularly track your progress compared to Glovo couriers all around Poland!
❗ Note that the “earnings” amount visible in Glovo is the gross amount, from which you still need to pay income tax and ZUS (mandatory social insurance). This also applies to received cash and tips.
➡️ This is exactly the service offered by Appjobs as your Glovo partner - we will provide you with legal employment and settle taxes, so that you can simply focus on making money. Our commission is a single, fixed fee of only 14 PLN weekly - and that regardless of the number of applications! In other words: even if you have 10 apps to settle for the last week, you will pay only 14 PLN! No other partner offers such conditions!
The tax and ZUS to be paid will depend on your age, student status, and whether work in Glovo is your only job:
Here are example net earnings out of 2000 PLN gross earnings visible in Glovo app (after 14 zł Appjobs partner fee: 2000 zł income - 14 zł fee = 1986 zł as the starting point):
❗Attention: you can increase your net earnings by also signing a vehicle rental agreement. By doing so, you'll receive a part of your earnings based on the rental contract, which has lower tax burden than contract of mandate.
Here's a comparison of weekly settlement for a person who doesn't have any other employer, in not a student and is already over 25 years old:
