    UberEats

    Yes, I know you make much more money driving and UE is a rip off, etc, etc, but I am a terrible driver and don't want strangers in my car. Anyways, I guess I'm curious about people's different strategies, I have definitely been able to make some good cash doing this but I'm all about...

    UberEats 20 min away delivery requests

    New to the forum. I live in the outskirts of the Chicago Suburbs. I just started doing uber eats like a week ago. I don't have a problem with driving 15-20 min to pick up food, but I think its kind of unfair that I don't get compensated at least a little by driving 5-6 miles there. If I'm...

    Fare Increase

    Another poster commented on this in the Indianapolis market. Here is a screenshot of my UberEats fare increase in Milwaukee: I have had a UberEats in the off position for weeks now on my toggle switch. My main reason for turning it off completely was the fact that about 3 months ago, I started...

    So this is the only place i have to go for real answers. Last night i did not feel like dealing with pax so i just did deliveries. What is the deal with sending me delivery requests 10 miles/18 minutes away? Seems like 18 minutes seems to b the cutoff but surely nobody is crazy enough to...

    No Tip. It was $150 worth of Pizza from an expensive Italian joint. This is the future of delivery Pizza boys.... And, a funny thing happened shortly thereafter... I delivered a single bag order to a trailer park and got a $20 tip. I actually had this post typed out before receiving...

    UberEATS Boost time no orders AT ALL

    Hi mates, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all. I'm an UberEATS driver in Melbourne. Have you guys found that if there is a boost on the system, we will get very few delivery orders in the boost time. Also the higher the boost is, the fewer orders we'll get. Does anybody know why it is like that? Is it because...

    Had a ping for a ride Saturday night. As I get close to the house pick-up location I get a call from the PAX asking me to stop and buy him cigarettes and he would pay me when I arrived. I told him I was close to his house already but he insisted. I asked him if he was wanting a ride and he says...

    Ice Cream deliveries!!!

    I recently got two back-to-back ice cream dessert deliveries, the prep time was ridiculous and when I was finally handed these amazing looking desserts - which the consumer paid a lot of money for... the packaging was seriously inadequate - basically a clear plastic tub with a lid jammed on and...
