Just speaking on experience in my market. It's all smoke and mirrors. Half the time the surge or boosts aren't even showing on my map and I'll accept a close decent sized order @ ex. $10.00 thinking it's going to have a nice tip sitting on it then drop off payout is $4 and then the $6 tip comes in later. Still not horrible but I think they throw these all over so it makes it more difficult to gauge/cherry pick. Also the base pay is already ridiculously low so all they are really doing is bumping it up with pennies. I always make way more when none of that crap is going on, again just speaking from my experience in my market.
