Frequently asked questions
I don't know how to read my payment statement
Trip earnings = Total amount paid by riders on your trip - Uber commission (the commission is 25% of total fares). This includes:
a) Trip breakdown fare = total fares paid by riders
b) Breakdown surge = additional revenue earned from an increase in prices caused by surge (when there is more demand than supply)
c) Tolls = Tolls paid in special venues (e.g., malls, airports)
d) Uber fee = Uber commission, which is deducted from the sum of A-B
Miscellaneous earnings earned this week from incentives and reimbursements (likely to be zero)
Miscellaneous payments owed to Uber (e.g., pre-paid background check fees)
Net bank deposit
If the net bank deposit is positive, Uber will deposit your cash into the account on the following Thursday. If it is negative, then we will withdraw the money from the credit or debit card you have registered with us your Uber application.
