“To answer y’all question: Yes, I did get paid. I cannot disclose that information on how much I got paid and I won’t be giving any names of these people or anything like that,” he explained.

According to another comment from a user named @Blxkbarb, Amazon appears to have changed its delivery interface at some point, likely because of the massive number of dog attacks on drivers.
