Updated 2019 – Ubereats Winnipeg has launched! Although UberX, their ridesharing service has not arrived yet, at least you can get on the road to deliver Ubereats in Winnipeg.
As a driver, you can choose when to work by simply going online in the app. Once you receive a “ping”, you can choose to accept or decline the request. If you accept, drive to the restaurant, grab the food and drop it off at the customer’s address. It’s as simple as that.
There are no shifts, no minimum orders you have to complete and you can go offline at any time. This is what makes it so unique compared to the other guys like Skip The Dishes and Door Dash.
Let’s show you what the pay and requirements are for an Ubereats Winnipeg driver and how to get started.

Ways to Deliver
You can deliver orders with a bicycle, scooter or car, however Ubereats Winnipeg is not accepting scooter courier applications right now.
UberEats Winnipeg Pay
You are paid a flat rate for picking up and dropping off orders, as well as a per km and per minute fee, less the “Uber Fee” which is like a commission Uber takes from your fare. This can range from 5% – 35% depending on when you signed up and if you drive UberX as well. If you transport passengers as well, the commission is usually 10% lower but the boosts offered to you are also lower. The passenger services are not yet available in Winnipeg.
A “boost” is offered to drivers when demand is high. This is where Uber uses a multiplier to increase your earnings. If an in-demand delivery area advertises a multiplier, for example 1.4, then your fare is multiplied by 1.4 and therefore increased by 40%. The Uber commission is only applied to your fare, not the boost.
You can also accept tips in cash or customers have the option to tip you in the app after the delivery is made.

Taxes as a UberEats Driver
The taxes you will have to pay include 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.
For more information on rideshare taxes, check out our in depth rideshare tax guide.
You will be required to submit proof of insurance to Uber when signing up, however it is up to you to make sure you are covered to use your car for commercial purposes. Most MPI policies permit up to 4 days per month for commercial use. Uber will not analyze exactly what type of coverage you have or monitor how often you are driving, so you should check your insurance policy/certificate, reach out to your broker or contact MPI for more information.
Uber’s commercial insurance policy does not cover courier drivers. However, if you transport passengers with their UberX service, for example, their commercial insurance policy will cover you if you accept a delivery order. There are some rumblings about Winnipeg getting UberX soon, as they are currently accepting applications online.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need an insulated delivery bag?
Though you don’t need to have a bag you can buy one from their supplier 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. Either way, the cost is pretty low.
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!
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 the customer doesn’t answer the door when I arrive?
Contact the customer by phone first which you can do in the app. If they don’t answer, a timer will start and after 5-8 minutes you can leave and will still get paid the full fare. You can even keep the food too!
