Earlier this year, we asked why you drive. You shared your stories with us — and today, we’re excited to launch a feature that makes it easier to fund life outside of the driver’s seat: Express Pay. It’s the Lyft-exclusive feature that allows you to cash out whenever you want, instantly.
Watch the video to hear how Justine, a local Oakland driver, uses it. (If you saw last month’s livestream, this cut is worth another look. It’s packed with never-before-seen details.)
How It Works
- Make at least $50 after commission (“Lyft’s fee”).
- Tap ‘Get paid’ on the Driver Stats screen, online Dashboard, or daily summary email.
- Follow the prompts. Add your debit card and confirm your cashout.
Driver Stats and Express Pay usually won’t match up. Amounts calculated weekly, like Power Driver Bonuses, will always be in your weekly deposit.
How It's Calculated
The Fine Print
Express Pay uses push-to-debit technology, which lets you access your earnings in real time — you’ll just pay a $0.50 transfer fee. Most deposits will appear right away, but some banks require an extra business day. Visit the Help Center to learn more.
Express Pay brings the same flexibility and control you have in your car to your finances, because that’s what we’re all about.
Friendly reminder: You’ll need to be using iOS 9 to enjoy this new feature. Here’s how to upgrade.
