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.
How the fee is calculated
All delivery fees are subject to a service fee.
Every time you go to a new restaurant.
For each separate order you deliver.
For the total distance from pick-up to drop-off.
Delivery fees by city and vehicle
If your delivery fee comes to less than the minimum amount in your city, the fee will be topped up before the service fee is deducted
The service fee depends on your vehicle of choice.
Boost is a feature to help you to plan your week and maximise your payments.
With Boost, promotions may be applied to the fee at peak times in specific areas.
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 can be added by the customer up to 7 days after the delivery and belong to you. Tips are added to your payment and will not be subject to Uber’s service fee.
Track your tips in the Earnings tab of the Uber Driver App and on partners.uber.com.
- When are payments made?
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.
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.
- Where can I check my payments?
- What are batched orders?
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, but you’ll notice some differences in the payments for these deliveries:
- The two orders together only require one pickup, you will see this as a batch discount on the payment statement. The batch discount is equal to one pickup fee.
- The mileage fee you receive for the second delivery will be paid for the distance between the first and second drop-off locations.
- What is a boost feature?
Boost is a feature to help you position yourself in the best places at the best times.
With Boost, multipliers can be applied to your fare at peak times in specific areas. The busier the pickup area is expected to be, the higher the Boost. This means you will make more money per delivery when and where demand is expected to be high, and you will see the Boost applied to your fares in real time.
- What is a boost zone?
Cities are split into different zones to help you position yourself in the best places at the best times.
In your app, you’ll see a Live Map that shows the current Boosts for each zone. The multipliers will change based on the time of day, and the day of the week, to help show you when and where it's expected to be busiest. You can see what Boost are coming up by checking the Promotions hub in your app.
