Save it, send it, or spend it

- Use the card for purchases anywhere Mastercard is accepted worldwide
- Cash the money out (withdraw) at any ATM
- Send money via Interac e-Transfer
- Pay bills online
- Keep your money on the card
- What do I need to sign up for Instant Pay?
To start using Instant Pay, you must be an active driver with Uber with a valid email address. It's that simple.
- What does it cost to have Instant Pay?
Instant Pay has no sign-up, cancellation, or annual fees, so you can try it for as long as you like. Payfare will charge $0.50 per earnings deposit to your card. If you earned less than $20 that day, the fee is waived.
- How long does it take to receive my money?
Your daily earnings will be automatically deposited to your card each morning—or instantly if you want to cash out your available earnings sooner—up to 5 times per day.
- How will I know when I’ve been paid?
You'll receive a notification via SMS or on the Payfare app each time your earnings have been deposited. Your weekly earnings summary is also available in the app.
- Where will Instant Pay appear on my weekly Uber earnings statement?
Everything will stay the same on your weekly Uber statement. You'll still see your total weekly earnings from driving with Uber.
- Can I use my card to withdraw cash from ATMs?
Yes, you can withdraw cash from an ATM as many times a day as you would like. However, you may not withdraw more than $1,000 total per day. You can obtain cash from any ATM that has the Mastercard®, Maestro®, Cirrus®, or STAR® logo. A fee of $2.50 applies to each ATM transaction, in addition to any fees the ATM owner may charge. You can search for surcharge-free ATMs by clicking on the ATM Locator button in the Payfare app.
- Since it is a Mastercard, will there be a credit check when I sign up? What if I have bad credit?
No credit check is required for you to become a Payfare Mastercard cardholder. Payfare is a completely separate MasterCard card program designed specifically for people driving with Uber.
- Will having a Payfare Mastercard and Daily Pay help me build credit?
Having a Payfare Mastercard does not currently help to build or restore your credit. Your transaction history will not be reported to the credit bureaus.
- Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
No, you can stop Daily Pay at any time and go back to getting your earnings weekly. To cancel, simply contact Payfare at 1-800-719-2685 or email support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
