The Uber Eats guide to more deliveries and smarter earning

Use this page to understand all of the earning opportunities for making money with Uber Eats. Learn how to decide when and where it’s best to deliver, so you feel confident hitting the road.

You will always know how much you will get paid before each delivery

The Fee for each delivery will be clearly communicated before you choose to accept, decline or ignore a delivery request. When you have completed the delivery, you will receive this amount (plus any tips from the customer).

Additional fees

  • Quest

    Quest incentives help you plan your week and maximise your earnings and are usually offered at peak times in specific areas.

    With Quest incentives, you will receive additional payment for completing trips over a specific time period.

  • Cancelled orders

    Some deliveries that are cancelled by the delivery partner will not be eligible for the full delivery fee.

    There are of course times when it’s not possible to find the eater despite your best efforts, and this will not affect the delivery fee.

  • Tips

    Tips can be added by the customer up to 7 days after the delivery and belong to you. Tips are added to your payment.

    Track your tips in the Earnings tab of the Uber Driver App and on


Payments FAQs

  • Quests are incentives offered through the “Opportunities” section of the Driver App where you receive additional payment for completing trips over a specific time period.

    This additional payment from the Quest incentive is made on top of the fare you are offered for trips and will appear as a single entry per offer in your earnings statement.

  • Upcoming Quest incentives will be communicated in-app, and you will always be able to find any available incentives in the Opportunities section of the driver app.

    When Quest incentives are live, you will see them highlighted in the map on the driver app, showing the additional payment offered for completing trips in that area. Clicking on that icon will give you further information about the Quest incentive: The date and time of the quest, the promotion zone, and the additional payments for completing trips there.

  • You can receive payments in three ways:

    • Weekly deposits directly to your bank account

    Each weekly pay period begins on Monday at 4 AM and ends on the following Monday at 3:59 AM.

    • Instant cashout

    Get your earnings within minutes when you cash out in the app. Cash out anytime, up to 5 times per day. Please note some banks may take more time to process deposits.

    • Two-day cashout (previously called Flex Pay)

    Get your earnings within two business days when you cash out in the app before 14:00, Monday to Friday. Cash out anytime, once per day. Please note some banks may take more time to process deposits.

  • You can see your payments in the daily summary in your app or on your partner dashboard. You’ll also get a pay statement every Tuesday.

  • A batched order allows you to deliver two orders from the same restaurant at the same time.

    These types of orders mean you can make more money in the time you’re online.
