Uber Instant Pay Reviews & Information
The Instant Pay for personal debit card program allows Uber driver-partners to transfer earnings instantly using a debit card.
Uber Instant Pay Signup
There has been a lot of confusion on how to sign-up for the program.
The two ways that has been reported to signup:
When Uber send you the email letting you know that you are eligible, or use your app and check in EARNINGS for the Instant Pay tab and Add your debit card option.
If you decide to go with the Uber GoBank debit card, you will get some extra benefits.
You do not have to be enrolled in the Instant Pay program in order to take advantage.
○ If you are not in the Instant Pay program, you can get paid up to 2 days earlier.
○ FREE to withdraw cash out at over 42,000 ATMs.
○ NO overdraft fees, NSF fees, or penalty fees
Not everyone will see this option, if you do not have this tab in your app, your account is not eligible at that time. Check back.
For the time being, you can still get paid weekly and your earning will be deposited before or by Friday.
Since not everyone will be approved for this program, please read below for the requirements, common asked questions and what others are saying about this new feature.
