In the past, Uber had made it their goal to create an app that would connect drivers with passengers in an effort to improve their work-life balance. But what is Uber paying out?
The most common form of payment for drivers includes a flat fee which is set by Uber and varies depending on the car type. Some drivers can also opt to accept a percentage of each ride fare as payment.
In addition, since Uber doesn’t own any cars, they rely on third-party financing companies such as Santander Consumer USA who pay for driver’s salaries and benefits in exchange for monthly payments that are automatically deducted from the driver’s paychecks.
Uber drivers are paid a predetermined amount in fares per hour. For example, the average fare for UberX is $8.93 and UberXL is $12.37, with the minimum fare being $3.91. Uber drivers also receive tips and gratuities on top of this amount.
