Learn about some common requirements
What are guarantee requirements?
Deliveries per hour
The minimum number of meals that you need to deliver each hour in order to qualify for the guarantee.
For example, for a period with a DPH requirement of 1.5, if you are online for 2 hours then you must complete at least 3 delivery trips in order to qualify.
This relates to the number of deliveries you must accept while you are online. For example, for a guarantee with a minimum acceptance rate of 70%, you must accept 7 out of every 10 delivery requests.
Minimum time online
The minimum amount of time you must be online in order to qualify for the guarantee.
For example, a guarantee from 11am - 2pm may have a time online requirement of 2 hours. This means you must be online (and available to receive orders) for at least 2 hours out of the 3 hour period in order to qualify for the guarantee.
The time online does not have to be continuous, but must amount to at least 2 total hours in order for you to qualify.
How can I tell if I qualified for a guarantee?
All payments from guarantees are added to your account by Tuesday and are available in your weekly Tuesday payment statement. That means any earnings from guarantees will not be available for withdrawal through Instant Pay.
When your Tuesday payment statement is processed, you can see your earnings from guarantees in the Uber Driver App or in partners.uber.com.

In addition to any specific stipulations in an individual guarantee, the following terms + conditions always apply:
¹ Only direct recipients of the offer are eligible
² Any activity deemed fraudulent by Uber will automatically disqualify you from the incentive and may result in deactivation
³ All times are local
⁴ All guarantee amounts are gross fares earned by drivers and not actual payout
⁵ Guarantee payout is proportional to time spent online (for example: if you are guaranteed $20/hr but are only online for 45 minutes, you would be paid $15)
