    in a nutshell, I was given two deliveries from a single merchant. Delivered first one no problem at 5min distance. 2nd one was 30min away so called Uber and told agent that the initial offer did not reflect the distance to be covered for second delivery. Initial offer was around $17. Agent...
  2. Lyft
    I have seen this posted several times in several blogs across the internet, Is Lyft stealing my tips? Most of these posts allude to the fact that the driver believes a passenger has honestly sent them a tip and for some unknown reason they never receive it. This leads the...

    I look at my weekly/daily earnings … there is a difference as to what i’m seeing on cashout. On mine it has come from tip adjustments. Whilst i’m still getting paid out the correct amount, my earnings are showing as higher for the week. I looked into it and it is down to “Fare adjustments on...

  5. Tips
    Interested to see what the tip situation is in Chicago and the rest of the country. Here are some stats that I had in last few days: 24 trips, $7 in tips (2 tipped trips) 44 trips, $57 in tips (15 trips) -72 trips, $145 in tips (21 tipped trips) 27% of rides tip. Most are tipping on...

    Hi all, I was just signing up to be a driver, but everything seems a bit confusing. From my understanding, a driver needs an ABN, so it's like an independent business. Does that mean I should open a business account, register GST, pay income taxes myself, etc? I've never been self-employed...
  7. Orlando
    Hey Everyone in Orlando! I’m working on getting my realtor license. Although in the meantime, I’d like to know what areas of Orlando to drive in, and what times. I’m banned from Airport Trips w/ Uber, but I remain eligible w/ Lyft. I have Lyft Lux as an option for my vehicle. I live near Disney...

    Tips have gotten slim to none lately! How is everyone else doing?
  9. UberEATS
    I accepted an estimated delivery for $8.63. I got the order and delivered it, only to realize, that the notes from the customer said to 'leave by the door', which I did. I realized later, that I only made $3.22. Seems, like the 'leave by the door' is a way to not leave a tip - you don't need to...

    I am tired of declining orders for $3, $4, $5 knowing these gas prices are terrible! I had to take off work from Ubereats due to gas. I use them as my main source of income until I get a new work at home job. Ubereats must adhere to the demands of the economy and the failing dollar. We are now...

    This is a Canada Eats perspective. If you know a customer does not tip or has not tipped for the last few deliveries, do you accept the delivery? Do you keep a list of non tippers? Have drivers in your area ever shared bad tippers lists?
  12. Complaints
    This is an eats Canada situation. Accepted a 25k delivery from a better restaurant. It was out to the middle of nowhere so I would need to drive 25k there and 25k back = total of 50k for a $10 delivery fee. I accepted because the customers at this better restaurant generally tip well. The...
  13. Brisbane
    I was reading an article that Amazon has withheld tips for years and now been forced to pay. Article below - https://apple.news/A_D75heGBTTWUyyG8CtArhw After years of driving Uber I’ve noticed tips come in clusters of 3 at a time. Once a month ill get 3 different customers tip me in a row then...
  14. Miami
    I re-started driving for the first time in 15 months and out of 10 rides, 6 riders tipped! Pre-pandemic was generally less than 20% or 2 in 10 tipped! Is this a new normal or just re-starter luck?
  15. Chicago
    In the before times I would usually get minimum 1-2 tips a night. Now I’m lucky to get one every 3-4 nights. Same car. Same hours. Same friendly service. Are the current higher prices that much of an impact on tips? I mean if you are paying $60 to get back to the burbs after a night of...
  16. Advice
    In Chicago, there is a lot of demand for rides, so I try to avoid waiting too long to get a fare, especially if it is a low surge. I usually hit the “I have arrived” when I am 1 min away, and that seems to do well, but I’m still finding people making me wait for 3-5 mins. I grew impatient...
  17. Pay
    Just curious what your averages are, does your Uber pay average higher or lower than the tips. What the largest tip you received, and how many (as percentage) tip upfront and go back in and update higher tip amount. What is your hourly rate of pay and pay per delivery. Just curious. TIA
  18. UberEATS
    Saturday night at my first UE pickup for the day I spoke with a guy who does both PM and UE. He went on to tell me he gets lots of good tips (in the $8-10 range) with PM and very few tips with UE. I was floored. I told him that about 90% (or more) of my UE deliveries pay tips. He then said...
  19. Complaints
    I am a very frequent Uber and occasionally Lyft customer. I use Uber roughly 10-12 times per week, and Lyft only when I can’t get a ride in a timely fashion. I simply prefer not to drive and do not like the metro in DC. I follow the news closely and came across this forum after searching...
