    If they allow tipping in one city, they are going to need to add it to all cities right?

    Maybe later? Hmmm..sounds like Uber is going to take a cut from our tips.

    Very unlikely, pax already pays between 18-22% higher fares due to the Upfront Pricing, is easier to find teeth on a turtle than Uber paying us a fair rate.

    Am fine with that as long as we get to rate the pax AFTER we see if they tipped us or not. This especially for those "I promise to tip you on the app if you take us through the drive-thru" folks.

    Hope Uber doesn't try making the tips anonymous to protect pax privacy :cool:

    We will see how it goes. It usually sucks to be in sf testing all the new ways they are going to steal from everyone else first. But hopefully this one pays off

    Per Federal law, the employer, which I assume Uber will be regarded as, cannot take a portion of the tips. The only deduction they can take is the processing cost. For example if the credit card processor charges 2.5%, Uber can only deduct the 2.5%

    From an email I just got:

    1.Tipping is Coming

    Tipping is available in Seattle, Minneapolis and Houston as of today. We’re starting with only 3 cities so we can create the best tipping experience for you and your riders. We’ll be adding more cities over the next few weeks, and will make tips available to all U.S. drivers, by the end of July 2017. Of course, Uber service fees are never deducted from your tips. Learn more.

    Nothing at all. It's actually picked at random. Beside sf and new York which were test markets

    Even lyft doesn't let you do that. Just change their rating later

    Already a glitch for that. So when a customer is getting out claiming he will tip u via app don't rate the passanger. Hit complete trip and shut down the app. Go on Web browser and if no tip is shown on your Uber Web browser page then open Uber app again and rate accordingly.

    Since it shows the trips that did tip, it certainly will make it easier for those "1 star for not tipping" drivers to go through and change their ratings...

    I imagine they will have a separate line for tips that will show the net amount without any further details.

    Some idiot drivers will still opt out of tipping. Uber will just keep those drivers tips for themselves while still collecting from the riders. There are idiots who refuse money handed to them on a silver platter
