Frequently asked questions

  • What is a short term supplier agreement?

    Deliveroo is proud to offer flexible work with attractive earnings. We try to do this by ensuring the number of riders we onboard and have on the road matches our anticipated customer demand, in particular during peak periods. 

    At certain times of the year, when we expect particularly high demand, we may onboard new riders on short-term supplier agreements. These agreements come with an expiry date, after which your account will be closed. This will allow us to meet the temporary increase in customer demand during our busy season, and ensure attractive earnings for our riders.

    Once you’ve received your supplier agreement you can check clause 1 to find this date. After this date, your account will be closed - we'll send you an email before this happens to remind you.

    We’re constantly assessing our consumer demand and we’ll get in touch later if there’s an opportunity for you to switch to an unlimited supplier agreement. Within the dates of your supplier agreement you're free at all times to decide when, where and whether to work, and to accept or reject any order, for any reason.
