Can I ask for more money on a Gig?

NO.  Roadie’s Terms and Conditions specifically prohibit a Driver from soliciting tips or additional compensation from Gig recipients or Senders. Roadie is an "on-the-way" delivery service. This means that the payment for a Gig is based on the Driver already heading in the delivery direction. Senders are given the ability to add a little extra to a Gig if they so choose, but they’re not expected to pay anything outside of the quote Roadie gives them. 

Drivers who regularly follow the standard process are usually matched over someone who requests a higher payout for the delivery.

Keep in mind that if a Gig doesn’t seem worth it you are totally free to pass on it and wait for the next one that fits your plans and pays what you want. Drivers aren’t required to take a certain number or percentage of Gigs, so just wait for the right Gig!

    I understand the reason for the restrictions but I feel there should be some way to contact support and have them just present your offer. Why I'm saying this is because right now there has been a gig posted for about three hours and I would like to do it but it's not on my way. I do know by the sender and the delivery location that what needs to be delivered is medication for someone in a nursing home. The current offer is $25 which is generous but it's 140 mile round trip which works out to be about $5 an hour after gas. So if there was any way to let the sender know I would be willing to take the delivery for $15 more just to bring it up to minimum wage after gas and if it's impo

    I agree with Stonestar. There are gigs I would take if it was another $5 or $10 which the sender might accept to get the product.  If not what does it hurt. If so they get their product faster.
