    DiDi Chux price drop in Melb

    with DiDi dropping commission to 5% in Melbourne to make drivers smile, but with lower fares too, are we expecting any promo in Sydney from uber or Ola with lower commissions? I know I’d prefer any pings from a rideshare company that had 5% commission rather than 27.5%...

    Ola commission now 22.5%

    I checked Ola’s “Ride Earning Breakup” for a trip I did today and noticed that they are now charging drivers 22.5% commission, not the 15% they notified us about by email. The per km amount has now dropped from $1.34 (under the introductory 7.5%) to $1.23 (at 15%) to $1.12. See attached...

    What are "service fees"?

    So in checking a few of my trip statements and trip details recently I noticed that Uber has taken a service fee along with their booking fee. It's usually a fairly High number and eats up a good bit of the percentage of the trip cost. Can anyone explain what this service fee is since I can't...

    Change in nomenclature

    Have you noticed that Uber is now referring to 'surge pricing' as 'dynamic pricing' and its 'commission' as a 'service fee'? I regard all four terms as accurate in a technical sense. 'Dynamic pricing' is the general term used for pricing that varies according to demand. It is used, for...

    ATTN: NY Uber drivers Uber is sending you money back that it claims it took from you by mistake.

    GST and Uber commissions from 1 July 2017

    At present, we can't claim a GST input tax credit on the commission we pay to Uber. This is because Uber doesn't charge us GST on the commission. It doesn't need to as the GST law now applies because we pay the commission to a foreign-resident entity, which is based in the Netherlands. The...

    Lyft Commision Schedule update

    The only thing I noticed after reading the 3 pages was that cancellation fees are subject to a commission fee now. I'm assuming that wasn't there before since drivers received a full $5 cancel fee. Pay decrease to drivers for those few riders who no-show. Post any other changes you see. I'm...

    Uberpool commission should be 10-20-30% based on 1-2-3 # rider trips. That would be fair.

    Would You Choose A Flat Commission to Lyft if You Could?

    This always comes to mind when driving longer distances, in annoying Traffic. Lyft does the same amount of "work" getting us a ride, no matter if that ride is 5 miles (10 minutes) or 35 miles (1.5 hours in city traffic). Lyft pairs us with a rider, and their work is done..completely. I...
