...I only take exception to the "us against them" slant...
... You are basically asking us to do the same as for example using the Mobee app to get some gift cards because probably at some point I will be buying a game...
You are assuming that these shops within a reasonable area get up to a fee worth doing. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't.
At the very least, going to work for Door Dash or Uber, or literally any app that is like that means that we all have to put even MORE miles on our cars to do that work.
Basically that person could skip the gas station audits and still make out better by getting a $5 tip...
I would also like to say that this is hardly the way to handle this situation...
What about people who have no need of more than a hobby? Why castigate them for, say, choosing to pick up quickie shops such as simple gas station shops (not audits) that might fit neatly into their commute time or lunch time?
... But delivery apps are just one option, and probably a poor one for most....
But with employers being forced to pay higher wages and jobs opening up to people who have been traditionally excluded from the labor market, a rugular part-time or full-time job might be a better fit, allowing shoppers to do the stations only to fill their tank, or when bonuses are too high to pass up.
I have found the most profitable way to do gas stations is to do all brands. It seems crazy to me people will do a Shell but. It the Exxon right across the street. I try to average $25 a location. Some locations that have over 12 pumps I ask for more. I take some at $12 because it is on my route or across the street from where I am already going. A good day is having 4 different brands on the same street right by each other. It is rare I have to take them at that low of a pay. I also take on other shops on the route in remote areas that have a good bonus. Those pay for overnight stays and make me some extra cash. if I’m lucky I can get my hotel, food and gas paid for on each trip by doing a shop for each. Route planning software is imperative for this kind of shopping.
Can you give me some ideas on route planning software to look into please?
