anyone else's uber not letting them deposit their whole payout through instant pay? For example if my payout is $70 it's only letting me instant pay $30.

And uber office closed today with tons of drivers hanging outside...what's going on?

It appears that starting yesterday, without any warning, Uber started withholding anything that's not the original fare minus their fee. Looks like that includes surges as well as incentives. Doing that with no warning messed me up. They are pretty cruel sometimes.

Just when it seemed like things were going OK they have once again found a way to just **** up drivers life. Being able to instant pay all of my earnings at the end of each day before I go to bed was really starting to work out in my favor with stuff I needed to pay. Smh

Don't count your chickens be4... With Uber.:rolleyes: I didn't know they introduced instant pay in LA yet. Have you tried the other instant pay providers?

I don't know what system Uber uses but they need to switch over to Lyft's.

If you do an instant pay it's in your account within 30 minutes. It's the best $.50 cents you could spend if you want some cash fast.

The hard part...getting it to $50 without taking 20 RideS of 20 minute pickups

Uber doesn't charge for instant pay, there are no minimums for instant pay and it's in your acct within seconds. But lyft charges you (yes it's minimal) and makes you earn at least $50, and I usually have to wait a day or two.

The initial payment is actually less than if there was NO incentive, because their fee is 25% of total fare including the boosts, deducted from just the regular fee. So you are cashing out less than the original fare until the next week.

Wait I get it now. So basically you can only instant pay your crap regular earnings and not your surge and boost earnings even though everything shows up on your pay statement instantly.

Anyone know the point of this and what motivated them to do this?
I believe that the answer to both of your questions is Uber.

They are holding a reserve in case of adjustments at the end of the pay period. Some people may have their pay garnished or adjusted based on automatic withdraws. IRS, SBOE, child support, car loans, fuel rewards.

It's probably a requirement from the bank as they got burned. So they may only be releasing 50% of available funds because of adjustments at the end of the pay period.

From what I gather 50% of your proceeds are subject to garnishments, etc.

Which isn't right. Because the money being earned is pre-tax and not post tax. Because if anyone is getting garnished like this it will just put you that much farther into debt, especially with taxes.

The fact is, you're a contractor so you're not subject to garnishment. They shouldn't be touching it. But how do you fight the IRS?

That's my take on it. I think it's a reserve that will be available once the end of the pay period and all the automated debits on the account has been settled.

I don't think uber has a say in this. It's the bank that is issuing the credit has apparently run into some issues.

If you want all your money minus $1 -$1.50 processing fee try daily pay. From what I read I think they only hold a 10% reserve and they pay on bonuses and referral fees as soon as they are on your pay statement. No waiting for the end of the pay cycle

So I can use other banks, not just GOBANK, to get my instant pay direct deposited in? I was told by uber that I have to use GOBANK with the uber name on it. Optimus Uber
