Ways to Deliver
You can deliver UberEATS with a bicycle, scooter or car.
UberEATS Pay Montreal
You are paid a flat rate for picking up and dropping off orders, as well as a fee per kilometre and per minute fee. The Uber Fee, or Commission, is 35% and is taken off your fare. You are also paid based on the estimated time waiting at the restaurant and delivering to the customer.
During peak times Uber may offer a pay “boost”. This is where UberEATS uses a multiplier to increase your earnings. If an in-demand delivery area advertises a multiplier, ex: 1.8, then your fare is multiplied by 1.8 and increased by 80%. The Uber commission is only applied to your fare, not the boost.
You can accept tips in cash or customers have the option to tip you in the app after the delivery is made.
Uber Eats Montreal Pay Calculations
With all these commissions, boosts, and compensation factors, it can get a bit confusing to calculate your pay. Although Uber does it for you, it is helpful to check your trip earnings for errors. Sometimes they are way off on the distance or the boost pay isn’t quite right. Maybe their commission seems too high?
We have your covered! Try our NEW Uber Eats Pay Calculator. Just enter all rates for your city (found above) and the Driver Pay Calculator will do the work for you!
Once you do a couple trips, you can see how long they take and even calculate what you are making per hour.
How much will I make per hour?
Estimates are between $18-$25/hour, depending on demand, area, boosts, tips day and time. Some drivers have reported earnings up to $55/hour!

How UberEATS Taxes Work
As an independent contract, you will have to pay taxes directly to the government like CPP (Canadian Pension Plan contributions), EI (Employment Insurance), Federal and Provincial Income tax. You should consult with an accountant who can tell you how much to save from your earnings, especially if you have another job.
You will NOT require a GST/HST or QST number. UberEATS will collect all required taxes from the customer and remit it directly to the government. If you drive for a living you may want to consult an accountant regarding possible registration. Once you pass a certain amount of income as an independent contractor, you may have to charge and remit GST/HST Number. Tax rules change frequently so get some help!

Uber drivers are on their own for insurance. Only rideshare drivers that transport passengers are covered on delivery trips as well as their regular UberX trips.
You are required to maintain your own personal insurance policy though and submit proof to Uber when signing up.
Most insurance companies require you to disclose to them you are using your vehicle for commercial purposes. Before you start driving, you should talk with your insurance company or agent for more information.

Step 2: Upload the required documents.
Step 3: Wait for your background check to be completed and Uber to notify you when you have been activated.
Step 4: Get an insulated bag (optional).
Step 5: Logon and off the app whenever you want to start accepting delivery requests!
Do I need an insulated delivery bag?
Bags are not mandatory for Uber Eats but they help a lot. You can order one from their supplier where you can buy a bag for approximately $11.25 including shipping. It is important to note, some restaurants may not allow you to pickup an order without a bag, particularly when delivering pizzas. Cyclists bags run around $40.
Do I need to sign for shifts?
No need to sign up for shifts. Just log on and accept “Pings”, which are on-demand requests for deliveries. Accept or decline requests and log off whenever you want! Uber states you must keep a satisfactory acceptance rate or you will be deactivate but there are conflicting reports about this actually happening.
Are there a minimum number of deliveries I need to do to stay active on the platform?
No, but if your documents expire you will need to upload them again before you can start driving.
Is there an orientation, interview or “onboarding” session?
No, everything is done online or you can you go the Greenlight Hub closest to you to sign up or get help if you need it!
How do multiple orders work?
Sometimes you will pick up more than one order at the same time from the same restaurant. In this case, everything remains the same except you get a drop-off fee for each location you deliver to. Of course, you will be paid the extra kilometres you drive and the extra time it takes but you will only be paid one pickup fee.
What happens if they customer doesn’t answer the door when I arrive?
Contact the customer by phone first. If they don’t answer, a timer will start and after have 5-8 minutes you can leave and will still get paid the full fare. You can keep the food too!
