Uber has finally launched a new feature on its app that enables Nigerian customers to tip its drivers after a satisfying trip.
TheCable outlines that the transportation network company, headquartered in San Francisco had earlier introduced the tipping option in 2017, which was only available to American users.
Two years later, Uber Nigeria announced on its official Twitter handle that passengers can now show gratitude to Uber drivers using the tip feature.
“Tipping is officially here, now you can show extra appreciation to your driver by tipping them through the Uber app! Tips go directly to your driver, Uber receives no service fee,” the company wrote.

On its official blog, the transport company stressed that since its driver-partners offer noteworthy services to ensure clients enjoy a successful trip, they should be commended.
“Driving is more than just getting people from point A to B. Every day, driver-partners do their best to make your life easier– from getting you to that big meeting, first date or must-see match–they do it all,” Uber wrote.
Customers can click on the tip button after rating a completed trip.
The app also allows passengers to choose from a range of preset amount or choose a custom amount while using card payment.
