Cashback. What is it and how to use it?

To check the balance and expiration date of the cashback, you need to go to the main menu (three bars in the upper left corner), chose 'Payment and promo' section, tap the 'Cashback'. An information window will show the up-to-date information about cashback.

Cashback payed rides do not have bonuses but the validity period will be extended. After 90 days without trips, 10% of the cashback burns out, after another 7 days -30%, after another 7 days - the remaining 60% of the cashback.

There was no ride, but the money was charged. What should I do?

When you create an order, the sum for this ride is blocked on your card for further payment. However, the reserved amount of money is charged only in case the ride has happened, and the order status is “Done”. If the ride is canceled, that sum on card balance is unblocked, and the money is not charged. You can see that on the card balance. Funds are usually unblocked immediately, within a few minutes. But sometimes, it may take from 2 up to 11 banking days to unblock the funds. It depends on the bank.

Geolocation. Why can there be problems with it?

There are several factors that may affect location accuracy:

Weather. As the signal travels between the Earth and the satellites, bad weather, such as rain and storm, may weaken the signal, while in sunny and cloudless weather the signal will be better.

Buildings and structures. We live in cities full of tall buildings, that may affect the signal because buildings reflect it.

Phone location. We do not hold the phone in our hand all the time. In most cases, we put it in a pocket or bag, which may also reflect the signal. In this case, metal containers impact the signal mostly.

Network. Most phones receive location information through the network. If the network is low, location information cannot be obtained quickly.

GPS chip. If it is damaged, the phone may only receive location information through the network, which will make the accuracy worse.

We recommend turning location search to 'all sources' in the device settings.
