uber fees

  1. Complaints
    Lately, I've been looking at how much uber charges pax vs my payout. On full shifts of at least 6 hours, uber takes vastly more than I would be paying the local cab company. This is at less than half cab rates as well. Driving my own car, on my own insurance, liable for damn near...
  2. Taxes
    ...does it list what those were?? This last year was my 1st one driving for ol' Travis & Uber... and the first one I understand that they allowed tips. Now, those are clearly labeled on Lyft's 1099, but of course, Uber doesn't give you a 1099 (unless you make like over $10,000). I THINK...
  3. Adelaide
    Ok just clarifying here, (because its much easier and more accurate than actually asking uber) but has the service fee for uber in Adelaide gone up to 27.5% for everybody? i was on 25% before but i just got back from overseas and they updated the terms and conditions so i had to accept them to...

    I guess Uber can promote they didn't decrease rates by just increasing their "Service Fee". This will be of no change to driver numbers as they already know people who do this job will work for 50% if they changed to that. This tactic would offset the recent rider rate adjustment for the gst...
  5. Advice
    Uber has reportedly been rolling out an increase in the "Uber Fee" from 25% to 35% in parts (or all) of Florida since early January of 2017, almost 4 months ago. https://uberpeople.net/threads/ubereats-uber-fee-increase-to-35.129793/...
  6. Pay
    Mine is $1 base fare + 15¢ per minute and 90¢ per mile with a min of $4.65 per ride and uber charge each rider an additional $1.65 that I don't see I get 72% of that charge so you'd think I'd get a min of 3.34 per ride but no it's 2.16 this is silly I drive around a small town were you might...
  7. Stories
    So Uber sent me another text claiming that they would be guaranteeing me $1,500 Take-Home this week if I could give 125 rides. I instantly emailed them because I knew this was a play on words. The staff member told me that it was gross income that would be guaranteed. In other words, they would...
  8. Chicago
    Uber is charging newer drivers 25%. I was told 20% when I signed up, showed them an e-mail and they said oh well. So not only do Chicago drivers make the lowest in the country now they are taking out 25%. They are to greedy.
  9. Complaints
    I am sick of passengers who cancel after 2-3 minutes after I interupt my break and have committed to roads or traffic that cost me money. Less than a minute, fine I can accept any loss from than as a cost of doing business. I understand newer pax who are learning how to use the app but after a...
  10. Pay
    My Big Experiment I live in San Pedro, CA, the southern tip of Los Angeles County. I decided to fill my tank up on a Saturday night, drive a long day into the prime-time hours in the busiest sections of our city and see just exactly how much I’m earning. Here are my results: Drove hours 4PM to...
