WASHINGTON —GetUpside is partnering with online convenience-store retailer Gopuff. Now U.S. delivery partners that earn with Gopuff can take advantage of exclusive cash-back promotions at GetUpside’s network of 45,000 gas stations, c-stores, restaurants and grocery stores.

“Gig economy drivers are feeling the effects of climbing gas prices and more expensive general consumables. And at the same time, our merchants are facing challenging market conditions with rising rack prices and tightening margins,” said Alex Kinnier, co-founder and CEO of GetUpside. “We’re happy to work with Gopuff’s rapidly growing network to make delivery partners’ dollars go further on the things they need, and to continue our commitment to our merchant partners and drive all available demand to their locations. It is a true win-win.”

The GetUpside mobile app connects customers to retailers by presenting users with personalized cash back promotions based on their transaction history. Interested delivery partners will have access to exclusive cash back promotions on GetUpside.

“At Gopuff, we are always working to listen to delivery partners and find new ways to further enhance their experience earning with us,” said Daniel Folkman, senior vice president of business at Gopuff. “By working with GetUpside, we are helping delivery partners access cash back on the things that they have told us they need and want, like gas and groceries.”

Washington-based GetUpside launched in 2016 and has more than 30 million users, according to the company.

Founded in 2013 by co-founders and co-CEOs Rafael Ilishayev and Yakir Gola, Philadelphia-based Gopuff is a platform for “instant” delivery of consumers’ everyday needs, including an assortment of products including cleaning and home products, over-the-counter medications, baby and pet products, food and drinks and local brands, as well as alcohol and fresh prepared food in some markets, Gopuff serves customers in more than 1,000 cities for a flat $1.95 delivery fee, it said.
