  • You have no funds. Your money is below the threshold necessary.
  • You input your payment method information incorrectly. Double check the card number, expiration date, and secret code if required.
  • Insufficient credits on account. Don’t forget to check how much credits you have on the account. Perhaps you’re expecting credits to cover a sufficient amount.

Double check your payment method and go from there.

Why are Uber Drivers Not Paid Well?

Well, the only people that are qualified to understand the expenses of having a car are drivers and those that frequently use a car. 

People that don’t own or lease a car don’t understand how expensive car expenses and gas is. In California as of Oct. of 2022, Gas is $6.50. Uber drivers are being paid < $0.90 a mile on average. Drivers don’t make much.

Drivers don’t make a lot because riders don’t think about all of these expenses that drivers have. As a result, riders are more likely to not tip well.

Please tip your drivers accordingly.
