Delivery driver ’surprised’ as they break down earnings for the week

Delivery driver ’surprised’ as they break down earnings for the week

An UberEats driver posted a video to TikTok detailing his earnings.

An Australian delivery driver has revealed how he makes money working for UberEats.

Especially in recent months, an awful lot of delivery drivers have popped up on the likes of TikTok detailing how much they earn.

Just earlier this week, a Domino's delivery driver left much of the internet shocked after showing how much she makes during a 5-hour shift.

Now, Ben Hutchinson, known as Ben Blue on social media, has shared how much he earns from delivering grub to people Down Under.

Hutchinson does content creation from home as his full-time gig, but decided to find a way to spend more time outdoors while also making some extra dollars too.

Ben Hutchinson has broke down how much he makes.

In a breakdown TikTok video, the content creator explained how he made an extra $416 in a week in June after working 16 hours and 17 minutes delivering the likes of greasy takeaways and healthy salads to people's doors.

"It’s perfect for me because I live alone and I work from home, so I have no reason to leave the house," he said.

"So I actually started Uber driving as a way to get out of the house and then also make a little bit of extra money as well.

"I’m gonna be honest, when I got into Uber Eats driving, it was actually more so to get me out of the house.

"But I’m kind of surprised at how much money I’m actually making from it."

While this may bring on some form of PTSD from math in high school for some, Hutchinson shared a detailed graph of his earnings as an UberEats delivery driver.

The graph showed how much he pocketed over six days, excluding just Saturday.

"So if we break down AUS$633 into 16 hours, it’s roughly around AUS$40 an hour,' Hutchinson said.

"Basically, from Monday to Friday, I usually do about an hour to an hour-and-a-half around lunchtime and then dinner time... and I did a little bit of an extra delivery on Sunday."

The delivery driver was 'surprised' by his earnings.

As an Uber driver, Hutchinson said he can claim many things back on tax, including fuel and car services.

Hutchinson went on to say that he hopes being transparent with his earnings will encourage fellow Aussies to join him on the side hustle.

"Obviously, Uber Eats delivery driving is different for everyone. But this is how it worked for me," he said.

"I know that there’s a lot of people looking for different ways to make money at the moment, and Uber Eats driving is one of them."
