    UBER keeps a running tally of the driver's earned portion of each trip. When a driver "cashes out" or requests their payment from UBER the cash that they have collected is deducted from the total that is owed to them by UBER.

    It’s simple. Most users prefer to pay by card. But let’s say it’s only 25% of all rides in a month. Uber uses that money to deduct the fees for all the rides in that month.

    The main reason for the drivers btw to ask cash is twofold: if you pay by card and include a tip, from that tip is also a fee deducted and the cc (bank) charge. And they have to wait a while to get their share if it’s paid by card. The cash money is in their hand immediately. For many dominicans to receive daily money is important.

    Who cares?

    I ride UBER in the DR most times that I've gone out for drinks, party or just plain get together. Its cheap, reliable, faster and safer than any other mean of transportation. It for sure beats driving your own vehicle, or paying for taxi.

    many times i have taken UBER in Santo Domingo, and i have nothing but praise for the experience. there are some people on this planet who will never be happy and satisfied, and if they buy a truckload of potatoes and one is bad, they will spend the rest of their lives regaling anyone who will listen about the time they got a bad load of potatoes. up theirs, i say.

    Uber is the way to go... it's safer than the chico waiting on the corner yelling taxi in your face when you have your car keys in your hand..
