Gig Apps Break A Sweat In New Provider Ranking

Looking for work? Many are. They turn in battalions to gig apps that consolidate job listings, create marketplace-style bidding for services, and go far beyond into payments and everything the entrepreneur of today requires to obtain and manage their side hustles.

PYMNTS latest Provider Ranking of Gig Economy Apps shows the current power players ruling the roost, as they tend to do, while aspirational upstarts and others jockey for higher position.

The Top 5

Our new Top 5 is a breeze to work through as there is only one change, though it’s big.

At No. 1 again is DoorDash which is acquiring food prep company Chowbotics, with Uber Driver at No. 2, Instacart Shopper firm at No. 3 and offering same-day delivery service from over 6,000 Family Dollar stores, and freelance services marketplace Fiverr sticking at No. 4.

Here’s a notable change: the Upwork app lives “up” to its name and rises one spot to grab No. 5 and completing the Top 5 in this latest Provider Ranking of Gig Economy Apps.

The Top 10

Continuing along, we see a number of changeups in chart standings.

Australian crowdsourcing marketplace app Freelancer gains one to occupy No. 6, pushing the Amazon Flex gig app to No. 7. Also experiencing lift is Lyft, rising a position to No. 8.

Quick as a bunny, the Task Rabbit app hops up one to sit at No. 9, while mobile ordering giant Grubhub drops two spots to land at No. 10. That does it for now. Back to work.
