Yes, you may make a cash payment. Pay your driver in cash at the conclusion of your journey. Note that if you fail to do so, the ride will not be charged to your account.
Uber Cash may be redeemed for trips, Uber Eats purchases, and JUMP bikes and scooters. Before requesting a ride, navigate to the app's "Payment" section and pick "Cash." Note that some cities require you to pay your driver via the app.
The amount you receive will depend on several factors, such as the rate you were charged, any bonus amounts from previous months, and how much cash was paid out in promotions by Uber. However, the minimum payout is $10 and the maximum is $500.
Here's how the system works: When you request a ride through the app, you are also asked if you want to get paid in cash instead of credit. If you select cash, your trip will still be recorded in your account but you will not be notified when it is completed. You can then visit the "Payments" section of the app and view your earnings; or you can send an email to [email protected]
Note that this option is available in certain cities around the world. Check with your local office to see if you can request cash payments instead of credit. Also, remember that cash is only accepted at certain locations worldwide.
Your fare is computed automatically and charged to the payment method you have associated to your Uber account. You may pay your fare in cash in various places. This option must be selected inside the app before requesting a ride if it is available.
By adding a credit card, you may pay for Uber rides directly from the app. Similarly to Uber, Lyft does not accept cash payments. It's understandable that not everyone prefers or feels comfortable paying with a debit or credit card. In that case, they can leave their wallet at home and use PayPal instead.
PayPal is a digital payment service that allows users to send money to other people via email. The recipient does not need a PayPal account to receive the money. You can set up a PayPal email address for yourself so that you can receive funds sent to your primary email address. Users can also make donations to nonprofits using PayPal. There are two main types of PayPal accounts: personal and business.
A personal PayPal account is free to create. However, to be able to receive payments you will have to verify your identity by providing some form of identification (driver's license, passport). This step is necessary to prevent fraud. After verifying your identity, you will be given a user ID and a password that allow you to log in to your account.
A business PayPal account is available for companies who want to provide themselves with a secure way to accept payments online. Like individual accounts, business accounts require verification of identity before being activated. After this process is complete, businesses can start receiving payments through their account.
If you do not have enough Uber Cash to cover the cost of the ride, you will be offered the choice to purchase the remaining amount or pay the remaining fee using your normal payment method. If you choose this option, please note that it may take some time before your payment arrives at and is accepted by the driver.
In case of a failed payment attempt, you will receive an email notification with more information on what action you can take.
If you prefer, you can also call our support team at (855) 659-4500. We are available Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM ET.
Don't have a credit card or bank account? No problem! You can also use a prepaid debit card for your trip. Please note that there is a $1 charge when you use such a card for payments.
