tipping feature

  1. Tips
    I know there was a thread about this a few weeks ago but I’m dredging up the subject again because it is so amazingly true.. The complaint was: Every time someone says “Oh, i’ll Tip you in the app” they NEVER do.. It happened to me again today so i wanted to share my stats.. Only about 10 riders...

    It's been a little over 6 weeks since the in-app tipping began. How is everyone doing? It started out a little slow for me but has slowly increased per week . I'm averaged out to about 7% of total rides. And I'm happy since that's about a 98% increase over what I used to get when tipping...
  3. Tips
    So Uber decided to "reward us" by matching our tips dollar for dollar on Tuesday Aug 15. What stinks is they notified riders of this so riders are tipping half as much leaving Uber to make up the difference. I called in sick to work today to drive some extra hours thinking I'd make bucco bux but...
  4. Tips
    I had a feeling it would happen and it did: Uber introduces their long awaited "tipping" feature and all that happens is they start using it as an excuse to gouge their drivers' earnings. So where I would once make $15 for a 25 minute drive I now make $9. Look, Uber, you know damn well that...
  5. Atlanta
    Uber is matching all tips so everyone is online. I've gotten 2 trips since noon, neither tipped. I'll try my luck after rush hour.
  6. Tips
    Does anyone know if the tipping option is available in the app yet???
  7. Brisbane
    I wonder if they would ever add this to Australian market or are the reward stickers good enough for a go0d job lol. I read in another article there will be continual new roll out changes between now and Sept. So who knows what they plan but the main change is the driver rates as top concern...
  8. Complaints
    So I am a brand-new poster to this forum. I also realize that posting this takes some sort of courage because it is clear that this is mainly represented by a community of Uber drivers. I don't do this to be mean or just piss people off. But I did want to bring up a point of view from the rider...

    By the end of July. They got rid of that ******* Kalanick and massive improvements expected. Also 2 minute cancellation Fee- instead of 5. win-Win! FINALLY
  10. Lyft
    Please answer the poll. I am curious, about how much do Lyft drivers actually receive in Tips. So much has been made of Lyft's in-App feature that there has been little discussion of the structural downsides: Lyft must report all in-App tips to the IRS. You are therefore fully taxed on Lyft...

    Interesting Articles... https://www.theverge.com/2017/4/17/15331676/uber-tipping-app-option-failed-nyc http://www.theverge.com/2017/4/17/15327552/uber-tipping-app-drivers-nyc-taxi If this happens and NYC holds fire to UBER that they have to add a tipping option.. I think it will be...
  12. Lyft
    Pro Lyft in-App tipping Pays 100% of cancellation fees Pays return tolls Pays time between arrival and rider's appearance. Better (subjectively) customer service Pro Uber More & Closer Pings per hour due to larger market share Pays selected surcharges that Lyft does not (example: Conn. into...
  13. Richmond
    I need to address this tipping issue, as I've been learning a LOT over the past several months...several very important issues I've learned from RIDERS!! First of all, I've put a little sign up on the back of my passenger seat stating exactly this; "ALTHOUGH TIPPING IS NOT EXPECTED, IT IS...
  14. Tips
    Let's do it for real! Give the PAX something that they will value and pay for. A few of you may realize that TIPS is really an acronym and the derivation is "To Insure Prompt Service". Most of us will usually (if not always) ignore requests that are 10, 15, 20 minutes away (I once saw a 28)...
  15. Advocacy
    If drivers like you were represented then what should our Union demand from Uber? I'd like to see: Increased pay. Uber cut decreased from 25% to 20% and drivers get a percentage of the booking fee. Tipping feature on rider-App Limit number of drivers (or rider-to-driver ratio) in a city so...

    Take the Survey and Support in-App Tipping! This is real, not a joke. Get info at: https://uberpeople.net/threads/get-tips-bonus-after-completing-survey.148300/
  17. Advice
    Take the Survey and Support in-App Tipping! You may soon receive the following email from Uber. It's mostly about adding Tipping to the rider-App. While there is no guarantee that Uber will pay attention to the results. However, they will give a $15 Amazon gift code to drivers that complete the...
  18. London
    American drivers seems to get better tips. Uber's policy is the same in both countries: "Tipping unnecessary and not supported in App". Begging might get you deactivated. Would some of the techniques used by American drivers work in the UK? Americans primarily use "tasteful" tipping signs. The...
  19. Tips
    Give these a try. Based of the energy built from an earlier thread I see that we can campaign for a in app tipping feature if we present it as the Riders request. I've had enough riders request this feature (whether they where serious or not) that makes this a true statement. This will then...
  20. Toronto (Ontario)
    I drove a really nice pax. They asked me if the app has a tipping feature and i said, "aww too bad all drivers would love that". They say, "no i cant leave u like that" and give a $4 tip on a $7 ride. See, get the pax to support us since uber is a slave to the pax.
