    Scary Long Mileage Ride

    i'm OK financially, and I'm doing this on the side. It's just annoying that uber can do this. I disagree with your comment though. If a person does not have a full time job, a decent low maintenance car, and making a living off ridesharing and depends on that income on a daily basis is not...

    Scary Long Mileage Ride

    Hello, I picked up a customer from Santa Ana to San Diego on Saturday. I had the trip first showing $90, then is showed $0 with -$90 adjustment. Panicked, called support. As usual, no real help. They told me that "an advanced team" will review the trip. It cleared in about 10-12 hours. I'm...

    Can someone explain this to me! Are we getting paid less, or customers paying too much?

    OK. I figured this out. First of all, I realized that Lyft and Uber report in seperate formats. Lyft reports the $2.25 as a seperate line item in the earning report, but Uber I think includes the $2.25 in the Service fee. This is the in n out service fee to John Wayne Airport in ORange...

    Can someone explain this to me! Are we getting paid less, or customers paying too much?

    Dear All, I think I could not get my point across. I know that since Uber/Lyfy or in short the ride share companies started to give fix prices as opposed to estimates, there would be inevitable GAP between the pre-set shared portions. 20/80 or 25/75. There are acceptable and not acceptable...

    Can someone explain this to me! Are we getting paid less, or customers paying too much?

    I 'm not a frequent driver. And yes, I have been living under the rock for that sense since I had not driven since Feb '16. Anyway, I saw my payouts, sometimes Uber loses money too (that 's they go under %25 in my case), but this estimate is not fair. It's like charging a surge to the customer...

    Can someone explain this to me! Are we getting paid less, or customers paying too much?

    Hello All, This morning I gave a ride and the customer paid $28.89 Rider Pays Rider Price $25.89 Tip $3.00 Rider Payment $28.89 Now, I know that $2.90 is the service fee. That's OK, and $3 is the tip. So taking the tip and the service fee: $28.89 - $3 - $2.90 = $19.99 We are left with...

    Why do people still act like we make minimum wage?

    I think with the tips and all, I'm at $20/hr range. According to my log, I put in about 3000 miles for the interval that I'm doing this assessment. 90 hours of driving. I'm not an aggressive driver though who goes out there and tries to make the surge and all. For the time frame I...

    Earnings vs. Payout

    I actually went through the numbers today. 1. Let's say that you had a tip coming from last week. They will add that tip to your previous weeks income, and they will show also as adjustment to your current week's pay out. 2. Since they are paying on Tuesday's now, your first two day's pay, or...

    Driving for Uber & Lyft, Mileage Log

    I have been thinking about this as well for a while. Couple things that makes the gray area bigger. 1. Sometimes I turn on both apps while driving back home from a far out destination. This is double dipping. 2. In the mornings, if you are commuting to work (not Uber related) and turn on your...

    Weekly Pay Missing: Direct deposit issue

    Update on the issue. After talking over the phone, and getting the same "Wait 3-5 business days" I went to the Greenlight help. Waited my time, and talked to a very nice lady. She said that I'm not the only one affected by this, and there are people out there that the "glitch" is preventing...

    Uberx vs Uber Eats

    I'm not sure if I agree. I used to drive both. UBER is definitely dominating the market, and with the tips feature now, I'm really enjoying giving UBER rides, and almost don't do Lytf anymore. Not sure about deliveries. UBER has more riders and the number of "not nice" people you come across...

    Weekly Pay Missing: Direct deposit issue

    Thank you for your reply. Their support reps are the most useless. We spent a whole week and 1 plus day saying that all is good. Anyway, the direct deposit sent yesterday made it to my bank today, but last week's pay is still not there. It shows in "transacting" status in the app. I sent...

    Weekly Pay Missing: Direct deposit issue

    Dear Friends, I have not changed anything in my banking information in my Uber account until this morning. Here is the story: My September 4th Pay out was posted to my account on September 5th as usual. September 11th Pay out has never made it to my account. I have made several calls, support...
