Uber adds gratuities and extra payments for waiting | Daily Mail Online (dailymail.co.uk)
Uber is introducing an in-app tipping service for customers to give a little bit extra to its taxi and delivery drivers.

The option to tip drivers will launch in the UK tomorrow and will appear in the smartphone apps and comes after criticism of its 'gig economy' working conditions.

After each trip, the driver will immediately rate their rider out of five stars, before riders are able to leave a tip five minutes later.

Customers will have up to 30 days to tip their drivers, so the driver will not know whether a tip has been added at the time of they rate their passenger.

The driver will receive 100 per cent of the gratuities they are given.
