Why was JoyRun started?
We wanted an app that helps community members give back as well as be rewarded by their community. Our vision came from the idea that any individual can be a part of this network, both delivering to make money, and ordering to celebrate moments with friends. JoyRun is ideal for a hungry college student, hungry to make money or hungry to feast with friends.

How do I pay my runner?

Help! I ordered two items instead of one? Can I cancel and reorder?
If you need to cancel and the runner has not gotten your order yet, you can chat with them directly and ask the runner to cancel for you. You will be refunded in this case.
I ordered some time ago but my runner hasn't show up. What do I do?
JoyRun is risk free for you. In the rare case that the runner does not show up, you will not be charged a dime. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any complications or concerns and we will take care of you.
I got my food, but the order is not right. What should I do?
JoyRun is a community of helpful runners, buyers, and friends. First, we recommend you reach out to the runner in your chat, and most runners will sort things out for you. If the situation is not resolved, please reach out to us at email@example.com and we will do our best to resolve this issue and make sure you are happy.
I am a runner who picked up the food, but the buyer is not reachable. What should I do?
Generally. we recommend that you wait for the buyer for up to 10 minutes at the meetup location if they may have steped away from the phone for a few minutes or in case of any last minute emergency. Beyond 10 minutes, you are not responsible for being unable to complete a delivery, and will be paid in full for your work.
How do I get paid?
Payments are processed automatically after a run is completed. With JoyRun QuickPay, you are paid your earnings overnight.
Why are the pending charges on my credit card higher than my order amount?
Rest assured you will never be overcharged. If prices at a restaurant change, the runner is allowed to edit your order price by a small amount. Your credit card was authorized for your order price plus this small amount. You can set the max allowed amount when placing the order. You will only be charged the actual cost, and if the runner changes any price, they will share a receipt with you.
