For select visits, there is a fixed Zone Rate calculated by the distance between your home and the store location (ie: your Travel Radius).
ThirdChannel does not pay a standard mileage rate based on the driver's route.
Your actual driving route to the destination might be different or longer due to geography or traffic.
Zone Rate Scenario
The red line between your home and the store destination represents the Zone Rate.
The dotted line could be your potential Driving Route.
About Zone Rates
- The Zone Rate per store is added to your hourly base pay for in-store work.
- The Zone Rate will not affect the order you make your visits.
- The Zone Rate will not affect how many visits you make in one particular day.
