Now ARCO is a problem ! Then how to avoid unwanted pings?
Shut it offNow ARCO is a problem ! Then how to avoid unwanted pings?
It plays into their "this is just an app"What percentage of your rides did you cancel?
It's odd that they are calling this a lead generation tool- what does that have to do with driving for Uber?

Your story is fishy bro . I think your an uber troll!! My advice to you man up go find a real job better than trolling .Started around May 2015 driving uberxl with a mint condition Honda. Have given around 700+ rides and maintained a 4.93 rating. I just got this text message and my account has been deactivated.
"Your account has been flagged a final time for having significantly more cancelations than other partners. We believe Uber may not be the right lead generation tool for you. We wish you the best, but we have decided to discontinue our partnership"
Doesnt make much sense to me considering i look at my trip history and it shows that ive had a bunch of "rider cancelations" trips and not "canceled" trips. Not gonna lie tho, I've been doing ARCO, especially on pool rides and non surge uberx rides, only because they arent profitable to me. Especially since they've been taking 25% from me.
Honestly, Uber is a great part time gig. I only drive on weekends and always cleared at least $300 on a Saturday. Any advice on what i should do?
From the very first section of the Uber/Driver contract:It's odd that they are calling this a lead generation tool- what does that have to do with driving for Uber?
Spot on. I literally burst out laughing when I read the term "leads" used to describe Uber customers.I know what leads are since I run a business completely unrelated to driving, and someone who ordered a ride is a customer, not a lead.
A lead is someone who might be interested in what you're selling. If I were a realtor, someone who wants to buy or sell a house would be a lead. Driving is not a sales job; it's more a delivery job.
If you deliver pizza, would the pizza place call someone who orders a pizza a lead? Of course not, that's a customer.
If you're a cashier, are the people in line called leads? No, they are customers.
Calling our riders leads makes it sound like we get riders from other sources. Unless you also drive for a company like Lyft, that's not the case. We can't pick up random people off the street or sit at the curb at the airport waiting for someone to hop in the car.
Also, the fact that Uber bills the riders means they are customers of Uber, not leads to us. Real leads would become our customers and pay us directly.
There were better leads in Glengarry Glen Ross.It plays into their "this is just an app"
They are giving you leads and you better accept all of them or else; I don't know why they just don't stop giving the leads to you and you will go away on your own volition or by only giving you one every few weeks. I guess they want to send a nasty message and make sure we all get it.
Please post the link for the thread! ThxSame thing happened to JustSteff - see his thread about it. He went into Uber office and begged forgiveness and they reinstated him.
XL=25%Op, why were you at 25 percent comission? Did you get deactivated at 20 and reactivated at 25?
It ain't hard to tellMy how things change or maybe OP is an uber troll!
ACRO does not show on uber system the cake is a lie bro.Could care less if you think im a troll. Just telling the truth about what happened to me.
Will possibly go to the office in my free time to see if they can reactivate my account if i promise to not ARCO anymore. Will report back on what happens.
Have learned my lesson to just take hits on my acceptance rate instead of ARCOing.
Also note to the new people we're talking about cancelling within a few second of accepting the call. If a call is cancelled within seconds it bounces to a new driver as the same request. The usual reason to do this is to keep your acceptance rate up while avoiding calls you don't want, like non-surge when you are in/near a surge area...........a typographical error. I have since corrected it. It should read ACRO.
