Hold my hand and walk me thru this gaurantee:)

So I just did what I'm pretty sure is my first successful gaurantee but would like to see how it breaks down...

I did opt in. Check.
It was $25/hour from 7am-11am with a six trip minimum. Thanks to my Jeffrey at 10:56am, I met 6 trips. However, my first trip was accepted at 8:44 am. All combined, the 6 trips in fares was pretty flipping dismal. Something like 42 total. Assuming all other specifics are met, for this period, how many hours will I be paid $25. I was online as early as 7:18 but again, first trip taken at 8:44am. Can someone break this down please? Thanks:smiles:

844 to 1056 is 2 hours and 12 minutes.

At 25 bucks an hour that's 55 bucks.

Each full hour is 25. 12 minutes is 1/5 of an hour or 60 minutes 1/5 of $25 is $5.

If you made 42 you will get an extra 13 to guarantee the 25 per hour

Now what if I was online for the entire 8-9 am hour but didn't get the ping until 8:44...does this count or does it start with the ping acceptance? I didn't reject anything if this makes a difference.

I'm also sorry since you're new they are buttering you up and will stick in the oven later.

Do not trust this company take the money as long as you can or they let you and put it to good use paying off any high interest loans or credit cards

You should get 4 x 25 = 100, less six srf less commission. If you're at 20% then you'd get $75.20 net revenue.

But, with Uber math deciding how much you get, this exercise is really just one of those fairground games where you have to guess how many jelly beans are in the big jar.

Let us know who comes closest to guessing correctly!

What I need to know is was the 25 hour guarantee for gross fares.

If it is then $55 subtract 20% for uber 4 a total payment of $44.
That I do not know. I'm assuming whatever any gaurantee would be when offered. Wouldn't I get $25 for the 2 hours 9-11 if I didn't make that in fares? So that's $50 plus whatever for the partial hour at 8:44 when I accepted the first trip?

I'll definitely let you know!! I wanted to believe if get the $25 x 4 but given its uber I have to believe they'll begin it when I got my first ride. Another thing I have to allow us the 8 hour online minimum I had to be on this weekend. On my phone, at least, I don't know how to check how many hours online I've got. Another issue that makes this hard to measure on my end is the fact that I was getting kicked ff intermittently and would futz with phone then go back and discover I'd been booted with no warning...and finally, what is uber's definition of "the weekend"?

I would feel differently if I met these people face to face right now I'm dealing with strangers I have never met and who accused me of stealing their fares in an email request for cleaning fee where a passenger paid me $20

The guarantee was $25 an hour to solid hours is 50 bucks 12 minutes is $5. The total is $55 that you were guaranteed because you only worked 2 hours 12 minutes had you worked 4 hours it would have been 100

Give it time. When these first started out here, I realised I had to work harder to get the guarantee than it was just to do my normal thing. I did manage $8.55 once without even trying.

Good luck though and 5*'s for effort.

Uber's guarantees were changed to gross fares after Jan 9th rate cuts.

You made $75.20 total, per elelegido's calculation, for your 4 hour guarantee shift.

SRF does NOT count in guarantees. If you say they do I want to see pay statements as all my guarantees (Lyft and Uber) have been exclusive of SRF.

Couber, if you were online for all four hours and they guaranteed $25/hour in gross fares ($100) and only earned $42 in gross fares (NOT counting SRF) then you would be bonused $58. Uber will then take commission (whatever rate is in your market) from all gross fares including bonus. Here my X commission is 20% so whenever I see a guarantee I just mentally deduct their commission, so your $25 guarantee is actually a $20 guarantee. As long as you accept all pings, were in the designated area (if there was one set), and met the online time requirements you should get paid.

So online time does not count? And it's actually 16 minutes but I still get your

im at 20% also. Got in before some cities were changing to 20%. Dumb luck on my part...

Sometimes there is a requirement to fill an hour with 50 minutes or some such. I think that is mostly Lyft. All my Uber guarantees have been averages based on total time online. My last guarantee was for $25/hour for 7 hours. I was online for 6.9 hours and between fares and bonus grossed $172.50, as I should have.

Based upon the information given.
If you were online from 0700 to 1100, then the guarantee is $100. Remove the 20% uber cut, you're at $80. If you did $42 in your 6 fares, it should come out to them paying you $38 on the guarantee.
