  1. I am very eager to be a UBER partner , however i have the following concerns:

    1. The car is registered under my name, if I register , shall i name it after her or my name.
    2. The gov.t req is only DTI and LTFRB Right. no more BIR and so on…
    3. For LTFRB requirement, will be registering directly to LTFRB or thru UBER?
    4. How much are wi going to pay for LTFRB?
    5. If we wabt to use our own mobile for the software will it cost us anything? how about the wifi charges where is it charge?
    When I inquired you have a 400 fee for the cellfon with software and internet conection as rental for a month? is that right?

    6. U heard there a monthly payments being paid to UBER mointhly? is there anY? So what are the fees we need to prepare during the registration? monthly? yearly and so on … other than the 20 percent share of UBER,
    5, Do you have a htline numbers where we can inquire ?

    • I invested in few cars & started with Uber with my full time driveras on board(12 hour). well, after just a week, i am finding hard to sustain this business. Currently Uber has no Incentive scheme & paying 5.77 per KM & 2PHP per minute which is too low. given a situation that u got passenger & you drive him 1 hour away covering 15 KM. You will earn total of 246PHP (base fare 40 + 120(60minute*2peso)+ 87( 15km*5.77). now if your driver drive for 12 hours he maximum can make 2952PHP Per day. this is the ideal situation keeping in mind that you not gona have passenger for all 12 hours. you will be wasting time too while waiting for passenger & going towards passenger, Lunch, pee breakups as well. Lets keep it an average of 2500PHP Per day. There are 26 working days for driver so 2500*26=65000PHP Per month the over all collection. Now 20% will be taken by uber for giving you business & 30% will be fuel consumption. Take out all 50% you will be left with 32500PHP. If your driver share is 40% then you left with 19500PHP. So investing 600K for 20K Per month is not a good idea. . If you drive yourself then you can make 30k per month easily. But dont think of making big money. Uber has invested enough to greed us into business. I would recommend that dont go with uber or any other taxi business, its not worth specially you not gona drive yourself. .

      • I agree with you not like grab car they are gving incentives, I also made a mistake, don’t invest in uber and I have been operating for I month and not good an investment, hey uber give us incentives, the 20 percent is a big chunk of our returned income can you lower it down or give us incentives

        Reply
        • totally agree. 20% is too much and the rate is too low. Uber PLEASE increase the rate or decrease your share/give incentives. You are killing the operators šŸ™
          For newbies out there, not a good investment.

      • You seem to forget that the car you buy is on installment and payable in 60 months . Shelling out 50k as down payment (Wigo) and paying a monthly amortization of 10k on the average will according to your computation earn you about 10k net/ month. A 10k net income on an investment of 50k (DP) seems to me a great investment. Remember you will have 10k per month for 60 months.

    • Hey Admin,

      Please give your side on the comments Dinesh, Adonis, Belle and Norman. I am existing Uber partner and i totally agree to their comments. You should do something on our issues as your business partner. Actually, is not 20% your getting from uber driver you increased it to 25% which to big. Give us incentives or force us to stop from doing business with you and push us to transfer to Grab!

    • Hi,
      Is the Gov’t suspension on applications for Uber TNVS still on?
      I am very much interested to be a partner, however, I couldn’t purchase a car if the suspension is still on.

      Please reply soon.
      Thanks

      • Uber still accepts sign ups. Uber will activate you within 24-48 hours if you submit the required docs. Submit the requirements so when LTFRB resumes the applications, maipapasa agad ni Uber yung requirements ninyo.

  2. I requested uber from my friend’s house and indicated my destination straight to my home. However, i decided to have another friend ride with me and drop her to her house before proceeding to my way home. After dropping my friend, the driver said that he has to end my trip and ask me to request for another booking since my friend’s house was out of way. May i ask if the driver’s approach was the proper way of handling the situation? Was is your policy regarding this matter?

    Reply
    • Uber allows you to make multiple stops. Ideally, the driver shouldn’t have asked you to book another ride. Also, if the system detects that a rider requested the same vehicle consecutively that would be considered fraud and will be handled by the system still as one trip. You need to wait out 20mins before requesting the same driver consecutively.

      • Is the 3 years LTFRB requirement based on calendar years or is it by month.

        To clarify, if my car is from February 2012, can I still enroll in December 2015 because 2015 – 2012 = 3 years ?

        Or is it the case that when my car is from February 2012, I can not enroll in December 2015 anymore because my car is 45 months old and that is more than 3 years ?

        Thanks in advance,

        Piet

  4. What should the driver do incase the passenger requested for a multiple drop point that causing him more time of travel and gas consumption than what is on the UBER estimated. How can a driver protect themselve from these kind of situation?

    Reply
    • Multiple drops are allowed in Uber. Besides, fare meter is based on distance traveled and time so technically you are paid.

  6. I got a brand new Honda City and on my sales invoice I can see there the frame number consists of alpha numeric character. Is that what I need to put on the requirement under chassis number? I’m concerned because the model number might be in the frame number as well. it might be the first 5 digits or the last 5 digits. I really don’t know. Please advise.

  16. When I checked my credit card statement against the receipts that uber sent to my email, I noticed i am charged 2.5% on top of the billed amount as seen on the receipt. Is this a commission fee paid to credit card companies that is passed on to riders or some sort of processing fee?

    Reply
    • I think it’s a processing fee of sone credit cards/prepaid or debit cards. What card are you using? For us, Citibank does not charge us anything on top.

      Reply
      • Aside from Citibank, would you know what other cards does not charge anything on top? I use my Eastwest for Uber, maybe I could use BPI instead. Hope you could come up with a list, please… Thanks! šŸ™‚

        Reply
  17. I will try to use my BPI credit card and will update status here. Meanwhile, could you verify with your finance team/billing department the cards that charges commission/processing fee? This might be helpful for others as well. Thank you so much!

    • Did you double check the email address you used? It might be typed incorrectly. You can try and create a Partner account again thru the link below. If it goes through using your email, that means you typed the wrong email yesterday. If it doesn’t go through, use another email address. Here’s the link:

      • This is with regards to the TNVS=owners name, (signature req), what if the owner is working abroad and not here when you need her signature while application is in process? She just got the car yesterday and she will be leaving at the end of the month, and I just read all the reqs today and found out that there are lots of reqs and docs to prepare. Also, what is the use of personal Bank Statement, what is it for? pls advise, thanks..

  27. How much the registration fee?

    Reply
    • There’s no fee to register with Uber. Uber only takes 25% service fee from your gross fares when you start driving. However, there is fees for LTFRB TNVS accreditation which costs around Php 5000. But Uber will process this on your behalf and charge you after submission which they deduct from your payout. So there’s no cash out to register and get activated in Uber.

      If you want some info about how to join uber. Here’s a step by step guide on how to be an Uber Partner. Let me know if you still have questions.

    • You can still sign-up and register as a Partner with Uber and submit the requirements so when LTFRB resumes the applications, maipapasa agad ni Uber yung requirements nila. However as per Uber, vehicle activation might be onhold until LTFRB resumes accepting applications. But driver activation (for Uber Match) is still the same.

  30. Hello,

    I’m from the South. I just want to confirm if Cash payments in UBER already includes the toll fee? The toll fee from Alabang costs P165, and my driver and I got stuck in traffic for a while. Upon reaching Makati, the amount which flashed on his smartphone’s screen is only P238.

    I am not sure if the trip already included the toll fee. The receipt I received via email does not have a break down of the amount so I am unsure if the toll fee is there.

    My husband, meanwhile, also paid Cash in UBER but the driver charged him an additional P84 on top of the amount which flashed on the driver’s phone (P195). So my husband paid P300, and asked kuya to keep the change.

    So which is it? For cash payments, are the toll fees already included in the bill?

    Reply
    • Hi Achie,

      Yes, toll fees in included to your total fare. You can check your receipt if the toll fee is included. If it is not you can email Uber at support@uber.com

    Tanong ko lang po, kelan po siya pwedeng makapag drive na ako ang operator nya? At kelan masasabi activated na ung account ko sa uber?
    *Note: hindi pa po ako nakakapag indicate ng bank account, kasi kakaopen ko palang po ngayon sa Union Bank.
