Variable Portion:  1,200  kms (Uber and private kilometers) travelled in the week and a cents per kilometer rate of 80c, for example) – 1,200 X 0.80 = 960

For those who have note yet applied, visit www.ubermarketplace.co.za to do so.

If your application has been declined, do not despair. Follow these simple steps to put you in the position to succeed in future.

Declined due to low ratings (<4.60) and/or trip volume (<500 trips):

  • Remember that the app reflects your rating for the last 500 trips. The best way to correct a low rating is simply to put in greater effort in the service you offer your customers over the next 500 trips.
  • If you have not completed 500 trips yet, keep driving and you’ll soon get there. Several drivers complete more than 250 trips each month.

Declined due to excessively high credit risk:

  • Visit sites like TransUnion to purchase your comprehensive credit report. This should give you a clear understanding of your outstanding judgements and/or bad debt.
  • While WesBank will approve those without a credit history, individuals who display evidence of reckless spending/borrowing will need to rectify that prior to applying.
