A: You will keep 75% of each pick-up you complete (pricing varies on where you drive). Driving with PKUP takes double the man power (i.e. you and your shadow driver) so your earnings will take this into account. The cost of each pick-up is based on the distance and duration you travel, you can get price estimates here.

The more pick-ups you complete, the more you will earn. Payments are deposited into your account weekly.

A: As a PKUP driver, you will be driving different cars from A to B (with or without riders).

This means you will need a way to get to the pick up location and a way to move to your next pick-up.

To get to your next pick-up you will need someone to drive you there, a shadow driver.

Your shadow driver can be anyone, your friend, family member or even your neighbour. This gives you freedom to choose how you move between pick-ups.
