Uber may soon be lavishing its drivers with new incentives to keep them on the road, including bank accounts and access to same-day payment, Quartz reported Wednesday.
The publication cited people closely involved with the matter as well as internal documents.
Although still in early stages, the incentives, if unveiled, would allow drivers to open up a bank account upon signing with Uber as a driver. They could also receive a pre-paid card so the drivers could receive same-day payments, according to Quartz.
The publication continued:
According to the documents, Uber is exploring a few “value-added” services in addition to same-day payments: cash-back discounts, merchant offers, and the ability to send money internationally are all possibilities. The latter offering would clearly appeal to Uber’s many immigrant drivers.
