My base with Grubhub is $8.Base here is $3.20.... That says $6.11
Correct me if I'm wrong but I assume that when you say "you don't get paid for the flip-flip" you mean that you'll get paid LESS because you lose out on the minimum fare and base fares that you'd be entitled to if the two trips were separate?I do not do round trip locals as you do not get paid for the flip-flop.
Close enough.........................if you run a job from Prospect at 34th to the Seven-Eleven on P at 27th and back, you get the same four dollars that you would had you just gone one way. You might get a few pennies over the four dollars, but not much. Essentially, you run the flip flop for free. I had just this trip, once. It showed up only as one-way, but when the guy got in, he told me that he wanted me to wait and bring him back to Prospect at 34th. I politely balked. He just as politely pushed it. This went back and forth until he asked me why. I told him. He offered me an ten dollar in-application tip to wait. I did let him know that most people who promise that, especially on unprofitable jobs such as this, do not follow through on it for various reasons. I was nice and told him that for most of them, they simply forget once they disembark, as I am now out of sight thus out of mind.Correct me if I'm wrong but I assume that when you say "you don't get paid for the flip-flip" you mean that you'll get paid LESS because you lose out on the minimum fare and base fares that you'd be entitled to if the two trips were separate?
When they talk about hourly averages, it pertains only when the app is engaged, i.e., when there is a delivery or person in the car.2 month ago Uber said you could make $1100 for about 40 hrs in Jacksonville. They then said median hourly rate was $31. 1 month ago it went to median hourly rate at $21 for 40. Now.....

This proves the upfront prices has done nothing but lowered the revenue Uber pays to drivers with a "its this or nothing" pay schedule.....
I no longer accept Uber pings that are reservations. They are guaranteed money-losers in almost every case.So it's 16 minutes away. That means you'll get there at 4:21. You'll then have to wait at least 19 minutes for the pax to show up. All for $2.88. You lose money before you even start the ride.
After they deducted a dollar from my cut, not theirs, but my cut, for the reservation on an XL trip, I've been rejecting every one they sent me. The bastards got me to take one by marking it as a 45+ minute trip when in actuality it was a reservation going 15 minutes away. So now I reject 45+ minute trips from them.I no longer accept Uber pings that are reservations. They are guaranteed money-losers in almost every case.
