How do Uber drivers get paid and when?

When working for Uber, do you receive pay daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly?

And what are the options of receiving payment? Do they offer direct deposit into a bank or do you have to use something like Paypal?

You get paid once a week, usually on a Wednesday or Thursday via direct deposit. There is also the option to get paid sooner using Uber Instant Pay.

Uber pays rideshare drivers via ACH deposit every week. A week for Uber runs from Monday at 4:00 a.m. to the following Monday at 3:59 a.m. All rides during that time period will count towards that week’s pay period.

You will receive a weekly statement of earnings on Monday or Tuesday which shows your earnings for the previous week. You can also check your driver earnings from within the app by clicking on the “Earnings” icon on the bottom of the driver app.

I get paid on Wednesday and the earnings go right to my bank account. I want to sign up and get paid daily but I have not been able to figure out how to do this.

If you have the instant pay set up, you will get paid on Tuesday, shortly after Monday rolls over actually. It is nice to be able to get paid so soon after the week ends.

Direct deposit is the most common way. I know checks are also an option but there is a great delay in pay doing it this way, it is much easier to register your bank account with your Uber account.
