Poparide provides a reliable service by collecting payments in advance for bookings.
We do this to ensure cars are filled with committed people and so that there is no need to carry cash in the vehicle, making the ride more enjoyable for everyone.
Passenger booking fee
There is a variable booking fee charged to the passenger on 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 booking fee goes towards paying our staff, servers and many other costs of running the Poparide service.
Driver payout fee
In October 2020, we introduced a 3% payout fee which applied 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 90c (3% of $30) and they will receive $29.10 in a payout.
