Uber to allow drivers withdraw earnings daily

Uber drivers will now be able to receive their earnings daily and no longer once a week.

During a recent media briefing, Tope Akinwumi, Uber Nigeria’s country manager, disclosed this. He said it is aimed at helping divers meet their obligations promptly.

“Uber is introducing Flex Pay, which enables drivers across the country to access their earnings more frequently through their mobile wallets,” he said.

At the briefing, the country head also announced new features for drivers on the platform. Akinwumi noted that adding an upfront destination and upfront fares feature gives drivers more visibility over a trip request’s destination and expected fare. He said these details will help drivers decide whether to accept a trip request.

“Earners are at the heart of our business, and we take a comprehensive approach to incorporating their feedback. This leads us to constantly innovate to develop solutions that enhance their experience while operating on the platform. We are therefore pleased to roll out these new features that will give drivers improved choice over the trips they take daily on the platform,” added Akinwumi.
