How it Works?

Simply pick up local requests you can cook, deliver the food and get paid. It's easier than what it seems, let us explain the process with a little more detail.

Pick Up Requests

Browse local meal requests and pick up the ones you want to cook. To pickup, offer meals from your home cooked menu that match customer requirements.

What is a request?

Here is an example "Cook meals for a family 2 adults and 2 children. We like to eat baked dinners and modern Australian food". That said, every request may be different and that is the magic part.

Do I have to cook?

There is not obligation to cook if you don't want to. Simply skip the request and it will then be passed to other cooks near you who are available. We do not penalise you for skipping requests.

Cook and Deliver

On confirmation by the customer, cook and pack the meals in the provided Dishme packaging and deliver to the customer or keep it ready for pickup as per the request.

What do I cook?

You're in the kitchen, so we trust you to present what you will cook based on the customers requirements. Or, you may chat with the customer online and decide the menu mutually.

Is delivery paid?

You get additional $10 to $35 for delivering the food to the customer which is calculated by us based on the delivery distance from your kitchen.

Get Your Payment

Once the order is delivered, customer payments minus the Dishme commission are released to your configured bank account within three days.

How much commission?

We take a flat 20% percent commission on the total amount to be able to provide you with everything you need to run your home cooking business.
