Interesting... I wonder whats the pay rate? better than flex? Also is it a Walmart program or a third party?
Looks like it will be handled by a third party, DDI.


As for pay, it will possibly start off really decent and then gradually go downhill. :biggrin:

I didn't see anything official on that, though.

yeah like amazon flex.. it was great when it first started.. there were only 4 hours block with 20-30 packages. Now you get 2-3 hours blocks with 50+ packages :biggrin:

The pay started off real bad and they had trouble getting drivers to pick up these $3.98 grocery orders at Wal-Mart. So far, I've picked up zero.

This came today:


Introducing a New Pay Structure

Hello Spark Driver,

We have been listening to driver partners and heard feedback about wanting pay to be more reflective of the level of effort it takes to complete different deliveries.
We are excited to let you know starting 7/21, Spark is introducing a new pay structure in your area!

This smarter pay model directly incorporates your feedback and takes into consideration factors representative of the variances in effort required for different deliveries, such as:
  • Effort required to get to the pickup location on time
  • Longer than expected wait times at pickup
  • Effort required to load the order for in-store pickups
  • Extra miles or traffic congestion
  • Effort required to unload the order at the delivery location
  • The care you take to provide your customers the best experience

With this new pay structure, offers will now be sent your way with a minimum, or starting offer price, but you may earn more based on factors such as those mentioned above.

Please see details on key changes to the app experience and some FAQs below.

Thank you for choosing Spark!

Best,
Spark Team.
