How To Earn From Uber Clone App?

Trip Commissions 

An on-demand taxi app like Uber offers a pre-decided share of the overall amount earned on each ride with the respective drivers. This is while keeping one share for the taxi business. Generally, the commission rate varies based on the on-demand taxi services. However, it remains somewhat between 15 to 30% in general. 

 

Surged Service Prices 

On-demand taxi apps offer cab services at surged prices at times. Generally, this happens when a particular region is short of cabs or it’s difficult to offer taxi services due to unfavorable weather conditions. The surged prices charged act as the direct profit for the taxi business and drivers. 

 

Cancellation Fee 

When the user (passenger) cancels a ride at the last moment, s/he is charged with a certain penalty amount. This amount directly goes into the taxi business account and is treated as one of the forms of revenue generated. 

 

Premium Ride Services 

These days, on-demand taxi services are open for premium ride services which eventually requires a lavish set fleet to cater to premium users. Naturally, the prices for such on-demand taxi services are a bit higher than the usual ones. Therefore, the share amount among the drivers and taxi business increases in the case of premium ride services.
