Uber Eats drivers are independent contractors who have been background checked by Uber. The drivers can choose their own hours and earn money by delivering food to customers.
The pay rate for Uber Eats drivers varies depending on where they work and how much traffic there is in the area at that time. In general, you can expect to make around $10 per hour as an Uber Eats driver if you’re working in a busy city like Los Angeles or Chicago. If you live in a smaller city or town where there aren’t as many customers ordering food through the app, then you may only earn around $8 per hour as an Uber Eats driver.
What Is Uber Eats Pay Rate?
The Uber Eats pay rate is a percentage of the order’s total cost. This percentage varies depending on the type of food you deliver and the order’s distance from your drop-off location.
You can earn more money by using more than one vehicle to deliver orders, as long as you have a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL). You can also earn tips from customers if they choose to tip through the app.
Does Uber Eats Pay For Gas?
Yes, Uber Eats will pay for your gas. As a rider, you are not paid for the miles you drive but rather the time spent waiting for your delivery. That means that if you drive to pick up an order and then go back home with it, you will be paid for the trip from home to the restaurant and back. Uber Eats takes a 10-15% cut of the total bill amount.
In addition to the hourly rate, there are other benefits that come along with driving for Uber Eats such as:
- Incentives: Earn incentives every week by completing deliveries. The more deliveries you complete in a week, the more money you’ll earn.
- GPS Tracking: GPS tracking allows you to see where your next delivery is coming from so you can plan ahead and be prepared when it’s time to pick it up.
- Make Money While You Sleep: Earn money while you sleep by setting up your account on auto pilot! When orders come in during certain times of day, we’ll automatically assign them to available drivers near by who accept them first – no more standing outside in bad weather or going out of your way simply because we don’t have enough people available at that moment to take on those deliveries.
How Much Do Uber Eats Drivers Get Paid?
The amount that you will earn as an Uber Eats driver depends on many factors including how much time you spend working and how many orders you complete each hour. Some drivers can make as much as $30 per hour, but others make much less than that.
As a general rule of thumb, if you complete more deliveries than expected then your hourly wage will increase (and vice versa). The more hours that you work in a week also affects your pay rate; therefore, if you’re only able to work part-time then it’s unlikely that you’ll make enough money to live off of just driving around delivering food.
