I’m not sure I can answer why because I’m not sure that Uber Eats IS paying less with the new update that shows the total expected pay for an offer including tips.
That said, a lot of Uber Eats couriers feel like Uber Eats is paying less – a LOT less – and especially that tips have gone way down.
That hasn’t been my experience at all. The average per delivery, average tip amount and hourly profit have gone up for me since the change happened.
So what’s going on? Are customers tipping less? Is Uber Eats paying less? Is it harder to make money now under this system? Let’s talk about it.
