|Indriver now charges 9.5% commission per trip.|
Many e-hailing drivers have been enjoying Indriver in Lagos since 2019 and it has been a major lifeline for many people with its zero commissions policy and getting paid by passengers in cash. Many drivers just love the convenience and I have received countless calls from them over the last 2 years to get on the platform. Some of them still call it "Indrive", I don't know why.
However, Indriver has now effectively started charging commissions on trips. The good news is that it is lower than the other major companies.
