While freelance delivery drivers are independent contractors, it's important to think of them as a member of your team, delivering your brand to your customers. Having good relationships and paying well will lead to a better experience all round, and will motivate freelancers to work with you again in the future.

Top tips to increase your Gig Fulfilment

- Consistency is key. Drivers remember when they get paid (and especially when they don't), so Gigable recommends you pay drivers no later than a week after the gig ends to avoid driver churn. 

- Pay a living wage. Gigable recommends you pay at least a living wage to your drivers to offset rising inflation and fuel costs. When asked, drivers said they want €10.40 an hour and €3 per delivery (or £8.80 an hour and £2.50 per delivery in the UK)

- A little goes a long way. Just €2/ £1.70 an hour more could increase applicant numbers by as much as 70%.

- Remove the uncertainty for applicants. Adding a guaranteed minimum wage and perks (like free meals) to your gig description could increase applications by as much as 78%.
