So the payment will be made on a cost recovery basis opposed to models such as Uber who have drivers that are intending to make profit. As a Mobi driver you will be offsetting costs based on distance travelled and this algorithm has been in built in the app.
The rider and driver don’t have the ability to pay cash as it will become tricky so we have implemented a third party payment provider who can process this for us (for the mean time as we hope to implement XEM as a payment model).
Therefore, once the ride has been complete the driver will complete the ride on the app and the distance travelled is calculated based on the shortest route so there isn’t an issue based on drivers taking different routes to increase their fare.
Once the rides are complete the funds will be taken out of the riders account and paid to the drivers on a fortnightly basis.
The rides are placed on a weekly basis so there is no lock in contract and there is the ability to cancel the ride prior to 12 hours.
I hope this helps to answer your question.
