    Service fee percentage

    As of yesterday in Orange County, we were supposed to get a rate increase in our pay. Though the trips I made last night reflects an increase in pay, there is nothing that makes sense about the percentage. Nothing is jiving. The mileage and time appear at 2 different percentage rates...vastly...

    New “service fee”...time to switch to Lyft.

    This revelation really stings...especially since my passenger was pissed his fare was so high even though there was no surge or anything. Getting 24.00 for a 68 dollar trip is outrageous

    Many Ola drivers moving to 15% commission

    Many (but by no means all) Ola drivers yesterday (Thursday 6 July 2018) received the following email advising them that, effective Friday 6 July at 2.00 pm, they would be paying Ola’s standard commission rate of 15% rather than the introductory rate of 7.5%: Dear # # Thanks in large part to...

    Ola commission rate clarification

    Hugh from Canberra Ola attended rideshare lunch today (Thursday 24 May 2018) to meet with drivers. Hugh helpfully clarified the availability of the 7.5% commission. In particular, drivers signing up now remain eligible for the 7.5% rate. Drivers who signed up by Wednesday 18 April 2018...

    When again did Uber start tipping, & where on form...

    ...does it list what those were?? This last year was my 1st one driving for ol' Travis & Uber... and the first one I understand that they allowed tips. Now, those are clearly labeled on Lyft's 1099, but of course, Uber doesn't give you a 1099 (unless you make like over $10,000). I THINK...

    Service fee question from noob.

    I just started driving Uber again after stopping 2 years ago and don't understand exactly how their service fee works. I had one ride where it was roughly 24 % of what the rider paid, and another I had 40 % taken for the service fee. The smaller service fee was for a ride in surge of 2.1 and the...

I had long suspected it was 60%+ well my suspicions are confirmed :( on average the company takes a little over 50%...

    Comparitive NYS Rates with Surrounding Areas

    Lyft pays better than Uber in Upstate-NY, for individual trips, even though their rates are similar. Unfortunately, Lyft generates far fewer requests per hour. :( Lyft is suggested as a supplement for Uber everywhere in the region except NJ, where Lyft is more popular. Please reply with info...

    Lyft Pays More Than Uber

    In adjacent Upstate-NY, Lyft effectively pays more than Uber for identical minimum fare trips and perhaps others as well. Even though the published rates are almost identical, this is because For new drivers (6/2017), the Lyft Cut is 25%, where the Uber Cut is 30%. Lyft does not always deduct...

    Who can tell me what is the service fee and booking fee that Uber charges

    Can you confirm the actual amounts, and they are set, not variable?

    Uber should be sued again.....

    I don't understand where they get off thinking they can change stuff around anytime they feel like it. Last I checked they take out 25% that's it. I never signed anything stating I accept anything different. So could someone explain this image please

    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...

    GoGoGrandparent...Would you accept this ride?

    Anyone heard of or gotten a request from them before? Apparently they are a 3rd-party that help elderly non-tech savvy people get Uber rides and charge a $0.19/min from the second the request is made until the trip is over. Would you accept a request from these guys? Do you think they are...

    Contracts to drive Uber

    I received through my partner app 3 documents that need to be agreed to before driving. I want to send them to my legal shield provider firm to review but can't figure out how to get them for either printing or download to email. Is anyone familiar with the Service Fee Addendum, IL Addendum and...

    Service Fee Screwup (or screwover?)

    So according to the January 9, 2016 service fee addendum, Uber's cut is being raised to 28% unless you were an active driver before 9/18/2015 in which case it stays at 20%. I went active in July when they first launched, but they're still taking that extra 8% out of my pay. They did this last...
