When can we expect to receive Ola delivery orders @Jack Malarkey and do you know if/when we can switch between deliveries and rides, like how Uber let us switch between deliveries and rides?
True, hopefully we begin to receive delivery requests from Ola in the next few days.@Minty, Ola does not yet have the in-app facility to switch between deliveries and rides the way Uber does.
I suspect Ola delivery requests will come through soon now that Ola is actively promoting the service at a time where the demand for deliveries is increasing and the demand for rides is decreasing.
As I have mentioned previously, drivers would need to ensure they have adequate insurance coverage for deliveries.
There is no problem with NRMA policies for deliveries but the position would appear to be problematic with other insurers unless the driver takes out a full commercial insurance policy.
Remember that rideshare and deliveries are NOT legally the same thing and particularly so when it comes to insurance.
True. Do you know whether or not DiDi are introducing a courier service as well?At this stage, the Ola app can't notify you whether it's a delivery or a ride request. The customer phones you and lets you know if it's a delivery request.
Both the customer and the person to whom you are delivering meet you at your car.
Shebah has also recently introduced a delivery service. The Shebah drivers do know at the time of request whether or not it's for a delivery request as the delivery requests are coloured differently.
