I have enrolled in instant pay and I have only changed my card 3 times (the same two cards). For some reason they are telling me that if I change again that I will have to wait 72hrs to recieve my deposit. Anyone else have this message? I thought the whole purpose of instant pay was so that we could be flexible.

Clearly 3 times is suspect. I could understand if they were in a different name but the are both mines both in my name are approved on both the partner app and the rider app. Hmmm maybe I will just shoot them an email and see more specific details because it gives no details in the faq section.

I don't really view this as a scam, but more for your protection. There have been at least 2 threads started about drivers being scammed for their information and instapay being used to steal their earnings from them by some 3rd party.

This is for your protection - imagine if someone got your information and was able to cash out your earnings to their own account/card that was untraceable - then you would really be crying scam!

Instapay should be viewed and used as an occasional convenience, and using it as a matter of course on a regular basis - that would scream to anyone that you are a short timer as you cannot wait until the regular payday.

No, the idea is that pay is instant. Hence Instant Pay.

If the idea was that it was flexible, it would be called Flexible Pay.
