Ok thank for all your help mate and didn’t you make like £700 in 10 days or something from it? Was that from only 24 hours a week? I forgot what you said before.

And when I go onto the app it says I have to log in but I haven’t got any log in details yet unless I’ve already done that part ages ago I can’t remember, or does that get sorted after the phone call?
No i hammered it that week managed to find extra shifts and did 6-8 hrs every day.. that is possible but the constant refreshing to get shifts is really tedious (rumour has it some users have "bots" grabbing shifts which is believable as you literally have ;ess than half a second and its gone... am not sure because i never did the phone thing.. if you have a username and password you think you may have used you could try sticking that in...or try calling Just Eat support
That's great thanks mate!

I've managed to get some work through an agency through hopefully for 9 weeks so I may as well wait until after that before I start with Just Eat, hopefully the bag comes in that time haha. They won't kick me out though will they if I wait??
Good stuff you found some work, and no, i cant see them bumping you...maybe once your account goes live set your availability and get shifts allocated then "drop" the shifts at least 24hrs before starting just to keep account from looking dormant.. even worth messaging them and explaining things too (but wait till after your account goes live)

I’m all set up and ready. I’m just waiting for the bag now. I’ve got £40 in my Zego account but that will stay the same until I start working won’t it? I’m just worried because it said it expires on 02/09 so what if the bag takes ages to come? And on the app it’s showing me 2 shifts available one which is today which I can’t do because I don’t have a bag.. but it says fee £10, the lady on the phone said if I am in the zone at the start time and don’t leave until the end time I get an extra £10, is that right? Is that the case all the time? If so that would be good because it would cover my petrol getting to Stafford and back.

Great stuff yeah the Zego money wont get touched until you start working... FYI it becomes active when you click "start driving" and ends at "Parked at customer" so you arent paying while in transit to restaurant..only when you actually have food in your car.. did Zego give you a price per hour? i am 90p/hr have heard of some being ridiculously high... as you use the Zego it should automatically top up once you are down to around a fiver... as for expiry date it is a month by month rolling insurance..when it expires it will auto renew.. JE/Uber will need an updated certificate of enrolment..it is in your zego account under documents.. takes a minute to update..bit of a pain doing it every month..keep an eye for them requesting new doc because your account gets suspended till you provide it..usually just a couple of hours... Is your account actually active? if so get your availability in on the app before weds midnight (Shifts for next week will be allocated thurs 5pm)meanwhile look out for custom runs/overflow or try get extra shifts on "Open Runs" tab.. a pain having to keep refreshing and most likely not actually getting the shift (fastest finger)... if it is active you can start immediately ...do not wait for the bag... mine took 3 months... as i said just get a cheap one and go earn.. as for the £10 thing i cant really answer... i know some shifts do get this in certain areas.. i have never had it offered..but yes.. to qualify you need be in the zone at start time and end time (you will always get a message 30 mins before end of shift asking if you want stay on shift or finish it,,, as i understand guys always stay till end (even though getting any more work in that last half hour is very rare.. shame you just missed out last weekend.. during Eid all the muslim drivers were off and meant it was non stop and very good pay.. especially Uber Eats was offering up to £5 on top of pay.. was getting likes of £12 for a 1 mile macdonalds trip normally maybe £4 odds

My rate is £1.05. And yeah it’s active, the 2 shifts were there for ages earlier, like I was expecting them to disappear quick but they didn’t? I need to buy that bag then to get going. Do you just do 1 shift per day? I asked them about it there was any closer zones and they said no.

I’ve tried to call Uber today to sort my account out and it’s just too frustrating! He said email me support. I’ve done that. He said they will respond within 48 hours. Obviously not because they haven’t. He said that’s impossible.. again, obviously not! Lol.

I’m just curious, how much do you think I will actually make in a 4 hour shift? I know it’s hard to say.

The trick with Uber Eats is hassle the hell out them, they will get the finger out if you are a pain LOL.. £1.05 is decent.. where were the shiftys you seen? on open runs or on the front map page of zones and highlighted green? if theres no closer zone its likely that area is covered by Stuart... I have tried attach screenies of the app the one with map is zones you have .. watch for these going green meaning they need more drivers..maybe get a couple hours shift at a busy time.. the one that says "no open runs" that is the tab to keep refreshing to get dropped shifts (you wont be able to take a shift that over;laps any confirmed scheduled shifts) .. and the other is your confirmed shifts page

Get in!! hope its good for you... i find busiest times are lunchtime (everywhere is different) Some guys (and even Just Eat) say best to be driving around.... others find parking near a restaurant works lol.. no real answer.. When a job comes to you you have 60 seconds to accept it... it will have the pay and where pickup is.. once accepted you can click on it to get google maps directions to restaurant if you need it, and by clicking on the order itself it will open to show you delivery address ... when you arrive at restaurant at bottom of app there is a slider "arrived at restaurant"... Slide this when you are more or less inside the restaurant..NOT when parked outside..reason if you are waiting excessive time you can claim comp but JE get out of it by saying you are 50 feet from shop when sliding that... expect most orders to be from KFC,BK, Subway, Greggs and if JE do it in your area MacDs (you will get other independent restaurants ..nut most small shops use their own drivers) Remember to get your availability in by 2359 tonight for next weeks shifts (most guys just tick available all day every day to maximise shifts)

@mabozza Isn’t the app meant to notify me when a shift comes on the Open Runs? I’ve got notifications switched on and I’ve just noticed there’s one on there now for 6pm-10pm. Too late for me to do it now but I don’t know how long it’s been there?

No it wont actually notify you.. you really just need keep checking it, it sounds like you are in an area with no bots (its thought some riders use a bot that grabs shifts the second they become available... where i am its sooooo hard to get anything on open runs..i have spent 30 mins constantly refreshing and when one comes on its gone before i can even click it).. try find a whatsapp group for your area for drivers to swap shifts if you do have trouble getting shifts.. same with overflow runs... your zone on map page can turn green and you can grab a couple hours when its busy.. you ARE meant to be able get notified but never do, you just need be on app to see it... when on a shift or before starting you could get offered early start/run extension usually these are notified

I’ve managed to sign up with Uber too. Just waiting for them to approve my docs. How does Uber work mate? Please tell me they don’t have zones like JustEat. I’d like to be able to do it along side JustEat in Stafford but also I’m hoping Uber operates where I actually live in Walsall? I’m sure they do.

And so far I’ve had 2 orders in 3 and a half hours. First one they sent me to the wrong Subway. Second one the customer sent me to the wrong address. Great stuff lol!

Haa you been having fun!! Uber is zone free, you can do it anywhere anytime... you will see zones on the app with different "boosts" TBH anything less than a 1.3x boost is hardly worth the effort, (that said...many just sit in a MacDonalds car park and pick up those ...do the drop and return... can be very busy that way) but when busy you can get bonus payments per delivery in certain zones... last friday was getting £5 extra due to Eid... Uber is i think just about everywhere... did a random WS1 postcode on Uber Eats customer app and there is McDs etc so yeah you should be fine that way.... 2 jobs in 3hrs is poor, were you driving about? do you know how to find hotspots on the app? when on a shift there is 2 buttons on the map page (normally only 1 when off shift) hit that and it lets you toggle map between zone and hotspots... on hotspots youll see circles drive around those hotspots to get more offers... on my first shift i only got 1 drop in 4 hrs too...then i figured it out

Ah ok thank you for that I will try that tomorrow. It was just 2 orders in the whole 4 hours today. £15.20 plus hopefully a £10 fee? Insurance was £2.10 altogether. Hoping tomorrow is better being a Fri eve and the shift is later. And if I can get Uber sorted I’ve got a McDonalds literally 1 min away from my house.
