Uber Eats Driver Pay – How it Works
A variety of factors contribute to calculating your Uber Eats pay. You do not get paid by hour. First step to understanding your Uber Eats driver pay is finding the Uber delivery pay rates in your city which you can locate in our city guides.
Below is an example of Uber delivery pay rates. Can you guess from what city?
Pick Up and Drop Off Pay
First, you are paid a fixed amount to pick up the order at the restaurant and another fixed amount to drop off the order to the customer. These are usually different rates. The reason why they are separate is because sometimes you get more than one order. In that case, you would only get paid one pick up fee and would be paid a drop off fee for each location you deliver to.
Travel Time Pay
Second, you are paid based on the time you wait at the restaurant for the order to be prepared and deliver it to the customer. This is based on an algorithm Uber uses, so it won’t be the exact time it actually takes necessarily. Therefore, if you drive really slow, you won’t get more money!
NOTE: Some cities have not yet converted to time pay but the trend seems to be spreading across North America.
Third, you get a fixed amount per kilometre/mile you travelled from the restaurant to the customer. You do not get paid for driving to the restaurant. Like the time based pay, Uber estimates the distance from the restaurant to the customer based on what they think the most efficient route is, so if you take the long way on purpose, you won’t get paid extra either.
The Uber Fee
The next thing you need to know is that after you add up all 4 pay rates listed above (pick up fee, drop off fee, distance and time fees) you will get your gross pay. Part of your pay passes on to Uber in the form of a commission. Know as the “Uber Fee”.
This typically ranges from 5% – 35% of your gross trip pay. The rate depends on a couple of factors, for example your city. If you signed up when they first launched in your town, they might take a lower commission from you then they take from new drivers that sign up.
The commission is typically lower for bike couriers than it is for car drivers. It also tends to be lower if you drive any passenger transportation service with Uber, like UberX or XL. However, the boosts are usually lower as well.
Increased earning opportunities called Boosts pop up when a delivery zone is busy. You will be able to see them on the map when you open up the driver app. If an area advertises a 1.5 boost for example, you get an extra 50% bonus of your gross pay. The Uber Fee does not apply to your boost pay, it is all yours!
Don’t forget you can also accept cash tips at the door or customers can tip you in the app after the order is complete. Uber does not take a cut of any of your tips.
