I know there is for regular Uber rides. What about Uber Eats? I've never ordered one.
Is there tipping option and capability for UberEats?
The Guru Take
Yes, there is. Very similar to Uber rides.
Yes, the tipping option exists within the app, and also an ability to rate the driver.
Remember that the cost of UberEats consists of the following:
1) Cost of the Food - The amount goes to the restaurant.
2) Applicable Taxes - Taxes that restaurants are required to collect.
3) Booking Fee - The fee Uber collects for their operational costs. A portion of this goes to the driver.
4) "Busy Fee" - Similar to surge pricing, additional fees are assessed when the demand is high compared to the supply of drivers.
5) Tip - The tip you specify as a customer. The entire amount goes to the driver.
It is worth noting that only a portion of the Booking Fee goes to the driver, while the rest goes to Uber. The fee is usually under $5.00 in most markets.
