“Possible to achieve if it’s done by two or three people,” he said.

He pointed out that he rides a motorcycle and completes about 25 deliveries a day. For each delivery, he earns about $5 to $6. For longer distances, he makes around $18 per trip. This gives him a monthly income of up to about $4,000.

“Usually, restaurants don’t give tips. Occasionally when customers don’t want their change, we will then get a tip of $1 or $2,” the rider added.

Another delivery rider who uses a bicycle to complete his deliveries said he believes that it is impossible to make so much money because there are currently a lot of riders out there doing food deliveries as well.

“I made $2,500 to $3,000 last month, and that’s after completing about 20 deliveries a day”, said the 35-year-old food delivery rider.

According to Shin Min Daily News, the reporter visited Toa Payoh Central to speak to several food delivery riders, but no one knew the real identity of the owner of the handwritten record even though it was circulating within the delivery riders’ network like wild fire.
