Poparide provides a safe and reliable service by collecting payments in advance for bookings and filling cars with committed people, without the need for carrying cash.
Passenger booking fee
Passengers are charged a variable booking fee for every booking.
For example, if a passenger books a seat for $30, they will pay a few dollars on top of their booking, usually around 20% (about $36 total).
The passenger booking fee helps us pay our staff, operate servers and cover many other costs of running the Poparide service.
Driver payout fee
In October 2020, we introduced a 3% driver payout fee which applies to both bank account and PayPal payouts. This additional fee helps us cover the growing costs from our payment providers and losses due to Covid-19. More info here
For example, if a driver receives a booking for $30 from a passenger, we will deduct $0.90 (3% of $30) and the driver will receive $29.10 in a payout.
