Harry here. Rideshare driving is one of the most flexible jobs in the world, and now even the pay is getting more flexible with the nationwide roll-out of Instant Pay. Today, senior RSG contributor Christian Perea updates us on what’s going on with Uber’s Instant Pay.
Uber Instant Pay is now available to all drivers on the Uber platform. In the past, it was a pilot program for select drivers and required the use of a GoBank checking account. But now the program has been expanded to everyone and also allows you to use your personal debit card.
If you’re not familiar with the program, Instant Pay allows drivers to cash out their earnings on demand (instead of having to wait for a week!). The program disburses funds to the driver upon the driver’s request, has no minimum cash-out amount, and costs just $0.50 for each disbursement when you withdraw to your personal debit card.
You can also request an Uber debit card that links to a business account setup through a partnership with GoBank. Disbursing to the GoBank card does not incur a fifty cent fee, however it involves all of the responsibility (and headache) that comes with having another checking account.
