Yes we do charge our Drivers for the Tranzyt Background Check Process. Tranzyt asks that Drivers share the cost of the background check with our organization. After completing the background check process, Drivers will receive a complimentary copy of their background check report by email within 30 days of submission. We have found that when offered for free, we have a significant number of applicants that complete onboarding, but never do a single project. This increases our costs of operating the platform. By asking drivers to share the cost, we are ensuring that only drivers that are truly interested in accepting Tranzyt delivery requests move forward. We eliminate the cost of onboarding applicants that are not committed and those savings are put back into our platform. This is one of the reasons Tranzyt is able to offer up to $18- $45 an hour when most of our competitors average $15 an hour.
The background check fee is $30 or $150 if you have lived in the state of New York. In 2019, New York raised the prices of records requests in their state. Unfortunately, the high cost of conducting a background check in the state of New York requires us to charge a higher amount if you are a current or past resident of the state.
You will be asked to enter your credit card or debit card information during your online registration. If your registration is successfully processed, you will be charged a non- refundable $30 registration processing fee that will cover your part of the background check. Please note, payment of the registration fee does not guarantee placement as a Driver on the Tranzyt platform. We process prospective Doers by reviewing the criteria submitted during the registration process. You may not create multiple user accounts or re-register after an unsuccessful registration attempt, per our Terms of Service.
Unfortunately, Tranzyt is not able to refund failed background checks.
