So u want Uber to cap the percentage it takes from driver but not restaurant? HmmmMayor Breed is imbecile
How does it affect the ppl delivering?Anyone out there working right now and delivering food Is literally risking their life. They should get wherever they can. This is a slap in the face to drivers.
ChowNow says they're commission free, restaurant pays monthly flat fee instead. Dunno how they do delivery though, if it's using restaurant delivery guy then it's as bad as the old days of calling in an order and the food arriving cold an hour or 2 later.With the 30% Uber charges the restaurants, there is no profit left for the owners, other than to cover some overhead costs.
Most restaurants that run couponing promotions spend approx. no more than 7-8% of sales on these traffic generators.
I have seen many popular restaurants drop off the program after a few months of participation - not worth it to them.

Aren't Uber claiming they're waiving EATS delivery fees during Covid. Which is their way of saying the restaurants are paying it with the 30% commission.They aren't telling us how much they are charging customers so Uber would manipulate the data in their favor.
I gave the same ride to one guy 3 days in a row to work. I made 14.00 on the ride and found out he was paying Uber 22.50 for the ride. So Uber made 8.50 each ride. Bottom line is this is Uber. They wouldnt give the correct information. Uber would also only pay pennies on the dollar with a fine. There is no motivation for them to be forthcoming now
Btw, He now pays me 20.00 for the ride to work 🤑

I only half read the sfgate story at the time, which was probably written by an unpaid half-wit in the first place.That is only with new accounts. You have to read the fine print
