Uber Instant Pay & GoBank Debit Card
What is the Uber Debit Card from GoBank? And what does it have to do with Uber Instant Pay?’
If you’ve ever worked as a driver for Uber, you’ll know that getting paid by the company happens regularly on Wednesday — the day in which your funds from your weekly trips will be dispensed.
However, in response to overwhelming demand from drivers, Uber is rolling out an Instant Pay service — where drivers simply apply for an Uber Debit Card, provided by GoBank — a company Uber has partnered with in order to provide Instant Pay services for drivers who prefer not to wait for their weekly payments.
Uber GoBank debit card will allow driver-partners to get paid anytime they want.
Are there any charges for using Uber Instant Pay feature?
Uber & GoBank will charge users a $2 convenience fee for direct deposits of drivers’ daily earnings — however, if used strategically, the debit card adds a new dimension of convenience for Uber drivers, who — up until now — haven’t had the opportunity to access their funds whenever necessary.
