I've noticed lately that my cash tips have gone to almost nothing. I think maybe I got a cash tip once in the last two weeks.

I get in-app tips... like 1 in every 10 trips... but I used to get cash tips daily, and it was often $5 bills. Before in-app tipping I made better cash tips on Uber than combined tips on Lyft... Now the tips I make on Uber is just like Lyft. In-app tips are usually $1-2 on the rare times they show up.

It is streaky. One week I get 50% of my pax tipping me cash and In App. Next week hardly anybody. But cash tips are def down but more In App tips at my end. I actually get more Uber tips than Lyft right now. Oh wait cos I get 10 Uber requests for every 1 Lyft request. My bad!

Hit or miss for .same, same as always.

Last week, 138 in cash on 350 fares. 22 in app

The 2 prior weeks, i think i got 23 in cash (one was a 20 on a 160 ride) and 6 in app. Sat nigjt I did 79 on app and 86 in cash tips.

Tips have been like that for me, Feast or famine. I've had several weeks where I made more in cash tips than in fares.

Other weeks 0.

I get tipped about 15% of the time on Lyft/Uber. I don't think the in-app tipping has made much difference in overall tipping in Uber. People that tip, will tip.

I posted about this way before Uber started in app tipping. I never wanted them to add that feature as I was worried it would actually hurt my tips. Especially since I run lyft and I never made the tips I made with uber. Now my theory is proving correct.
