We know that while the flexibility to make your own schedule as a gig worker is awesome, the pay is often unpredictable and leads to income instability. In Miami-Dade county, the “living wage” for two parents supporting a family of four is $22/hr, but rideshare drivers, Doordashers, Instacart Shoppers, and Amazon Flex drivers averaged just $16.50 in 2021. That’s where we come in—we’re here to help gig workers earn more and close that gap. Solo’s app maximizes your take home pay by seamlessly managing your 1099 income, mileage, and taxes all in one place as well as creating your optimal work schedule that Solo guarantees.
With our recently launched mobile app and over $700k in guaranteed worker earnings, we’re bringing our one-of-a-kind Schedule Optimizer and Pay Guarantee across the country to Miami on Monday, January 31! To celebrate Solo’s Miami launch, our platform will be free to access until the end of February.
So how does Solo’s Pay Guarantee work?
We created our Pay Guarantee program to address both income instability as well as help you earn more by working peak pay periods. Our customized in-app schedule optimizer shows you how much you’ll earn across each job you have linked to the Solo app so you can make the most of your time and optimize your schedule. In Seattle, we see workers using our Pay Guarantee earn 20% more on average or $90 more per week!
So how do we produce our earnings predictions? We use aggregated, historical data directly from Miami gig workers, that provide the estimated earnings per hour you see in the app. However, what’s happened in the past isn’t always indicative of the future, so our formula adjusts and accounts for anticipated and real-time events that could impact the estimated earnings amounts. This way, you get both the consistency of historical trends and adjustments to reflect the reality of the moment. As long as you turn your mileage tracker on while working and schedule your hours in the app, we make sure your daily pay meets or exceeds our predictions and if it doesn’t, we pay the difference! So whether you are picking someone up from Miami International, or delivering takeout from Little Havana, you can ride easy knowing that your payment is guaranteed.
What else can Solo do?
Expense & Mileage Tracker: This feature allows you to automatically track your miles so you can maximize your tax deductions. Plus, the app will match your location with your working time so that you don’t need to manually switch the tracking on and off. Make sure you turn on your location services when downloading the Solo app to enable this feature.
Tax Projections: We provide an estimate of what your tax liability may be based on income and expenses you track through the Solo app. Since Solopreneurs are responsible for tracking their own taxes, this feature makes it easy for you to both maximize your deductions and prepare for tax time. Please note that this is only for income & expenses tracked through the Solo app and your final tax due may depend on other factors not tracked by Solo.
Income Management: The app provides additional insights that show you how much you earn from each job including a breakdown of tips and incentives plus how much you’ve earned through Solo’s Pay Guarantee.
