This week on uberX
PLEASE NOTE: THIS PAGE IS ONLY RELEVANT FOR PARTNERS IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
Hi uberX Partners!
What a massive week! We sometimes sound like a broken record but again we did the most number of trips ever. Drivers who were online during the incentivised periods were making crazy money!
Over 250 Partners averaged over $40/hr in fares over the weekend!
As it gets busier we are able to guarantee ever-higher earnings and for next week we will be increasing the hourly guarantee. Make sure you tell all of your friends that Uber is growing and we need more partner drivers to help move Melbourne. And make sure you refer them so you get your $100 referral bonus!
This weekend is going to be huge. We have Soundwave on Saturday out at the RNA Showgrounds and White Night shutting down the CBD all Saturday night. We will send out some more information in the next couple of days. But you would be absolutely crazy to not get online!
Thanks to all. Have a great week!
Next Week’s Incentives!
It’s getting busier so we are going to make a slight increase to the guaranteed hourly rate that will be offered from next Monday! Uber will guarantee:
$27/hr DURING PEAK HOURS
Monday to Thursday : 5am – 10am
Friday 5am to Sunday 12pm (midnight)
THAT IS OVER 80 HOURS NEXT WEEK WHERE YOU ARE GUARANTEED $27/HR IN FARES!
It is very busy in the core service zone so we want to ensure you are encouraged to go where the demand is greatest.
To do that, we are increasing the minimum trips/hour to 1.5 which is still well below the average across the period. For guidance on where to position yourself head here.
- 90% acceptance rate
- Must complete a minimum average of 1.5 trips per hour during the incentivised hours you are online
How is the incentive calculated?
Uber Partner A is online 25 hours, during the incentivised hours, earns $500 in fares and meets all conditions.
Uber’s guarantee: 25 x $27 = $675 in gross fares
Incentive payout: ($675 – $500) * 0.8 = $140
A couple of things to note with the guarantee:
- the guarantee is for total fares (before commission)
- tolls are included in the gross fare amount by our system – add tolls to fares on your payment statement to get the number we use
- any top up will be reflected in the miscellaneous payments in your payment statement (you won’t see it on the phone)
$100 referral bonus!
We are now offering $100 for every driver you refer who comes online and completes 20 trips.
There are two ways to do it!
2. Press the ‘Refer Now’ button on the bottom of the driver app and enter their details!
It is an automatic system. So in order to qualify you must:
- refer them before they sign up online
- get all their details (email, phone number) correct
Please note this only applies to partners who register a car with Uber. The referral will be paid out once 20 trips have been completed.
