”I want flexibility about when and how much I work”
”I want to be able to drive last minute / change my hours / drive anytime without scheduling hours”
”I want to earn more if I work hard and complete more tasks”
”I want to be paid more if I do longer deliveries”
Once you’re accepted as a Wolt Courier, you can go online whenever you want, start delivering and earning money.
Courier Partners are paid bi-monthly, meaning that deliveries made during 1st to 15th are paid to you by the 25th. Deliveries made during 16th to end of the month are paid by the 10th.
Couriers earn per task and distance. Best performing couriers are rewarded with bonuses. The harder you work, the more you earn!
There are two types of couriers - ones that complete over 100 deliveries a week, and those that only work in their free time.
In our current markets the best performing couriers can earn the equivalent of 28,000 DKK to 38,000 DKK per month.
"Spare time" Courier Partners
Similarly, couriers that drive only during their free time can earn the equivalent of 5,000 DKK to 12,000 DKK per month.
Below is a table of example earnings from both types of Courier Partners.
Note that Courier Partners are not required any minimum or maximum hours. You decide yourself how much and when you want to be available!
Wolt - Exploring food
Please register first with the Wolt User app. This is the app with which you can order food from Wolt. The app will also create your user profile with which you will be able to register with the Wolt Courier Partner App. Make sure to use exactly the same login information when creating your account in both Apps.
Download the Wolt app here.
The Wolt Partner App is our handcrafted Courier App for receiving, accepting and completing delivery tasks. Wolt Partner App also supports live chat with Wolt Support. When you’re ready to deliver with Wolt, you can switch yourself online as soon as you want and you will automatically start receiving delivery tasks through the app.
Now you're familiar with the three apps that you'll need to help you to complete tasks efficiently. We’ll go through how the apps work later in this onboarding manual, so keep reading :)
One of the most important aspects of being a Courier Partner is getting the food from the restaurant to the customer, so that the temperature and the packing of the food is the same as it leaves from the restaurant.
All Courier Partners receive gear that is used to deliver orders, mainly food. The importance of knowing how the gear works will ultimately determine the rating that the customer will give you.
If you remember these points, you will do just fine when delivering with Wolt!
Before going online, always make sure that you have the gear ready:
Wolt and couriers are a team and a team is only as strong as its weakest link. Small problems cause chain reactions which will affect other couriers as well, so make sure you know how to use the equipment and that you’re not the weakest link!
We want every Wolt courier to be proud of being a Courier Partner. We are proud and respectful to be partnering with you, and expect the same professional treatment. Appearance and hygiene matter when representing Wolt. Restaurant staff, customers and people around the city see you as representing Wolt, so remember to dress accordingly.

Now let’s walk through one delivery. A good thumb rule is to remember that one delivery consists of three parts:
1. Receiving and accepting a delivery task
2. Picking up the order from the restaurant
3. Dropping off the order to the customer
So, how to make deliveries with Wolt? Watch the video below and find out.
Communication is the key link to success between Wolt and its couriers. If we can’t communicate together, delivering with Wolt will be impossible. Therefore, we’ll go through clear communication guidelines to ensure that you know the pillars in communication.
There are three ways for you to communicate with Wolt, which are:
Is meant for only live delivery matters and for that you will always use the support function in Wolt Partner. Live delivery matters might be for example:
Calling Wolt Support is meant only for urgent problems such as:
Is meant for non-urgent matters meaning that whenever you’re not online making deliveries, your primary way of contacting Wolt is by email. You can email us about anything e.g. payments or contract related questions.

There are also office walk-in hours, meaning that you can simply walk into our office and come chat with us!
Delivering orders can be very busy and we all make mistakes. We’re humans and we learn from them, so don’t worry when you make your first mistake. As long as you know how to react when something goes wrong and you learn from mistakes, you’ll do just fine.
Now as there are four moving parts in a delivery; The courier, the customer, the restaurant and Wolt – it’s not necessarily your fault if a mistake happens. But it’s ultimately up to you how the mistake is fixed. Below you can see a list of most common problems our couriers face.
How to react: Be polite and apologise for the inconvenience to the customer. Tell the customer politely that they can reach Wolt Customer Service through the Wolt application and everything will be fixed there.
How to react: Be polite and apologise for the inconvenience to the customer. Remember to never get into an argument with the customer. Be humble and tell the customer politely that they can reach Wolt Customer Service through the Wolt application and everything will be fixed there.
How to react: Contact Wolt Support immediately. Do not deliver any orders if the packing has failed. It doesn’t matter if it was the restaurants or your fault – we never deliver orders with broken packing due to hygiene reasons.
How to react: The longer you wonder around the colder the food gets. Therefore the first thing you want to do is to check your location from Woltfleet. Are you near the correct location? Check the special instructions in the task as well. If you still can't find the correct location, contact Wolt Support.
How to react: Depending on the seriousness of the accident, call the emergency center and then if possible Wolt Support.
How to react: Close the app and restart it. If it still doesn’t work, restart your phone or go to airplane mode and back.
How to react: Accept the task and head to the restaurant asap!
How to react: Be polite and wait. Sometimes restaurants are late and that is life. Never ever get into an argument with the restaurant. Wolt measures restaurant preparation times and we do everything in our power to reduce your waiting time.
How to react: Send us an email and you will receive a reclamation template that you can use. If the reclamation is revoked, contact us again and explain what happened. We will review parking tickets case by case.
How to react: Contact Wolt Support immediately and we’ll send an in-app message to the customer. In-app message means that our Support sends a message to the customer inside the Wolt application. If you cannot reach the customer after 15 minutes of waiting, you can continue to the next task.
How to react: Stay calm and do not get into an argument with the customer. Simply navigate to the correct address and let Wolt Support know and we’ll make sure you will be compensated for the actual distance.
How to react: Check the address details carefully and if you notice that there is clearly information missing, call the customer to ask more specific instructions.
