The race pay system at Uber Eats
The company Uber Eats offers to deliverers of its platform, a system of remuneration for the race. This means that Uber Eats partner couriers are not employees and do not receive a fixed salary in the classic sense of the term, to better understand, take the time to read the article of Courier à Vélo to become an Uber Eats courier.
The company simply recruits you as an independent contractor and pays you on the job. In other words, Uber Eats pays you on the run and only if you shop. Your remuneration will therefore depend essentially on the frequency of your deliveries.
The delivery pricing model at Uber Eats
If there is one piece of data that should hold your attention regarding your earning possibilities, it is the pricing grid established by Uber Eats. It specifies the criteria and the amount that the company pays to the Uber Eats courier for each order delivered and according to the distance.
Recall that thanks to the opening of its French subsidiary on February 3, 2020, Uber Eats has updated the price of the races applicable to its deliverers. A priori more advantageous update, marked by the elimination of service fees formerly billed by the box and a substantial change in prices per trip.
