How much does SudShare pay?

In my opinion, there are two types of people in the world:

People who hate doing laundry.

People who love to do laundry.

If you’re on Team Laundry and really enjoy the whole wash, dry, fold, repeat grind…there’s an opportunity for you to earn some great extra money with SudShare!

What the heck is SudShare?

SudShare is an American, people-to-people business, headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, that provides consumers the opportunity to hire independent contractors to wash and deliver their laundry. It’s basically like DoorDash or Uber but for a laundry service. The service is available in more than 400 cities and more than 50,000 people work as Sudsters.

How Sudshare works?

For the consumer, SudShare is a pretty neat deal. You sign up for an account, label your pickup location (example: front door), list your preferences (premium scents, hypoallergenic, or whether to provide soaps), and special instructions (example: bleach or hang dry). it will ask you if you have any special items, if any of your items need deep cleaning, or if you want to upgrade your protection to premium or premium plus.

After listing your form of payment, you can choose a Sudster and confirm your order. The app gives you a pickup window and a guaranteed delivery date and time. Your Sudster will send you a message with an estimated pickup time, and you can then drop your clothes off at the designated pickup location. You can place dirty clothes in large trash bags or in laundry hampers or bags. Clothes are usually delivered the next day.

For those less interested in using SudShare as a service and more interested in using the app as an income generator, there are a few things to know before you start scouring.

Sudsters make their money two ways. You earn money per pound of clothing and tips. In more populated areas, there are Sudsters who earn between $1,000 and $2,000 a week!

When you sign up for Sudshare, you have the flexibility to create your own schedule. You must have access to a washer, dryer, and transportation for pickup and delivery. The registration requirements are quite simple. Initially, you’ll see a short Sudshare basic training video to get started. Like Sudster, you will choose a radius of where you want to work. In this job, you can be your own boss! Choose the jobs you want and reject the jobs you don’t want. From there, you’ll take on a job, pick up the laundry, wash the materials, and return them to the customer on delivery day or the next day. Most orders require overnight delivery unless otherwise stated.

How much does SudShare cost?

SudShare charges $1 per pound for material. Easy enough.

How much can you earn with SudShare?

Payment for SudShare is 75 cents per pound of laundry completed plus tips and bonuses. If you accept same-day service work, payment is $1.75 per load. Depending on your washer and dryer, job types, etc., you can earn up to $20 per hour. Payment estimates are variable based on how far you have to drive, how much you have to buy in materials, etc.

Payments are sent two days after service, unless it’s a Diamond Sudster, where instant payments are a big plus.

What are the requirements to do laundry work at home?

The obvious answer is a washer and dryer, but there are a few items you’ll need to have to get the job done. This may include:

  • Various Laundry Detergents by the Gallon or in Bulk – Your customers can supply you with their favorite clothes, scent enhancers, dryer sheets, etc. However, they may not. If they don’t provide you with those materials, you’ll want to have the necessary items on hand to wash loads of that laundry!
  • Dryer Sheets or Wool Dryer Balls: Nobody likes static electricity.
  • Plastic Bags – After all that clothing is folded, you’ll need to place it in a secure, weather-resistant bag. Your customers may provide you with laundry baskets, but you’ll still want to zip the bags shut to keep out bugs, pets, and the weather from your hard work.
  • Ribbons – Something pretty to tie those bags
  • Clothesline: To avoid those dreaded high water pants or turn that knit sweater into a crop top, it may be necessary to hang dry clothes. An indoor clothesline that can be easily assembled or disassembled will be your ally.
  • Plastic Clothes Cover – If your laundry care includes delivering clothes on hangers, a plastic cover will come in handy to make sure those items stay neat from home to your closet.
  • Hangers – You know… to hang clothes.
  • Fabric softener: floral, musk, meadow, clean cotton, apple… the fragrance possibilities are endless. Your client may have a specific scent that they would like you to wear. If they don’t provide you with your favorite, it can be helpful to have options on hand.
  • Thank You Cards – A great way to thank the customer for their order, and hopefully earn their business in the future, is to provide a gesture such as a card or sticker.
  • SudShare Gear – You may want to purchase some name-brand accessories to help legitimize your side hustle.

Are laundry jobs worth it?

There is no doubt that you can earn extra money by working with apps like SudShare. However, it is important to note that you may be working on an order for an entire day. You are working primarily on comfort and will rely on the tips to make the work really pay off. You’ll be wearing out your machines and you’ll want to make sure you’re making enough money to make this job worthwhile for you and not just cheap labor for someone else. As an independent contractor, you’ll want to keep track of your receipts, your water/electric/gas bills, and your mileage.

Are there services similar to SudShare?

hamper – This is virtually identical to SudShare, but the payment structure is very different. Instead of “by the pound”, Hampr uses pay by the load. Price per load averages $10 to $15 per load and “washers” (have you got anything against the letter e?) make up 70 percent of the total. Launderers keep their tips and can enjoy weekly pay.

Rinse – The same place with a very different schedule. This is a W-2 job with flexible hours. Employees can take a few extra steps while picking up or dropping off clothes and provide a seamless customer experience. Predictable shift-based income ($20/hour and up) plus tips and mileage reimbursement.

Apps and sites like TaskRabbit and delivery.com They also add laundry to their list of services. To learn more about these sites and other WFM jobs with flexible hours, check out this post.

Is SudShare legit or a scam?

Not everything comes out in the wash (pun absolutely intended).

Various complaints have been observed on TikTok, Reddit, and other social networks highlighting the issues with the app. However, most of the issues are related to the contractor and not necessarily to the application itself. This includes lost or stolen clothing, miscommunication, and terms of service violations. SudShare offers additional coverage for customers in the event of a disaster, but you need to make sure it covers the value of the clothing.

However, many Sudsters have noted that while this is a great opportunity, there are some caveats to be aware of.

  • You must keep track of your purchases made to do this job and save your receipts.
  • You are a contractor and you will need to save for tax season.
  • You are using your own gas, often your own laundry detergent, and your own machines to get this job done. You are earning extra money, but you also have extra expenses. It will be important for you to determine if this job is worth it to you in the long run.
  • Job opportunities can be plentiful or scarce depending on your location.
