Tipping

Great service deserves to be rewarded

We regularly hear of drivers delivering great service so now, if your rider thinks you deserve more than just “Thanks for the ride!”, they will have the option to leave you a tip through the app.

Riders and UberEATS customers have the option to tip right from the app after each trip or delivery.

  • It’s easy to receive tips directly through the Uber app.
  • Zero service fees applied, always.
  • Cash out tips and earnings any time with Instant Pay.
