Can you accept real cash tips?

If tips are indeed allowed, can you accept them in the form of actual cash and pocket them or do they need to be done through the app itself? I am a bit confused on the process. I am talking in regards to Uber. I am not a driving but looking into becoming one so I don't know much about this.

Yes, cash tips are just fine but most will tip using the app.

It would be impossible for Uber or Lyft to enforce a no cash tips policy anyway so they don't even try.

Yeah 100% of the tip is yours to keep as well. Like mentioned, neither company would be able to put a stop to it. People can easily give cash tips and they'd have no idea.

Absolutely yes! It's just a tip and not more. C'mon, grab it and have extra catch in your pocket to buy yourself a bottle if drink when you close for the day.

Why not? You're missing a lot if you've been rejecting cash tip

Yup! I tend to prefer cash tips because there is no waiting period. I have a tip jar in center console that is locked in place so people can toss there money in there without me needing to touch it.
