Benefits of Delivering With Uber Eats

One of the biggest benefits of delivering with Uber Eats is that you get to pick your own schedule. You can deliver day or night--whatever works for you. If you just have an hour to spare between appointments or classes, you can use that time to earn some extra money by delivering.

Another perk is that you do not have a boss. With Uber Eats, you are your own boss.

You aren’t considered an employee for Uber, instead, you are considered a partner with Uber. That being said, if you run into any snags during your delivery, Uber Eats does offer free 24/7 phone support.

With Uber Eats, you also can get paid instantly. You can withdraw your earnings up to five times a day using the Instant Pay feature. Terms Apply.

How it Works

Once you have completed the sign up and background check process process, you can log into the app to begin receiving delivery requests near you. You simply tap to accept a delivery request and the Uber Eats app will provide you with optional navigation and instructions to help you easily access your locations. The restaurant will have the order ready for you, you simply indicate that you are picking up an order for Uber Eats.


Once you pick up the order, the Uber Eats app will give you optional navigation to the recipient’s location. You’ll receive guidance on whether this is a curbside drop off or a walk-in drop off. You then drop off the order with the individual and that’s it.

Now you can either take another delivery order or sign off until you’re available again.

How Payment Works

The net earning you receive is based on a pickup fee, drop off fee, and mileage from pickup to the customer. Earnings may vary.

You can transfer money from that delivery to your bank account immediately once you have registered your debit card with Instant Pay. Keep in mind that you can cash out your earnings up to 5 times per day
