Uber Not allowing Nicknames

Uber Not allowing Nicknames

I definitely had an asshole customer who used my name very condescending. She was claiming I dropped it at the wrong address. Support confirmed I had the right address. This was on DD so she couldn't pull her tip.

I didn't know that on DD you can't pull your tip. I wish Uber would do that! I've had tips taken away because of traffic I couldn't avoid and the gps glitching

I think it is technically possible if you go through support. I am not sure what kind of requirements you'd have to meet. They voided her review too though.

You can use a nickname on Uber. In the app go to Help/Account and Payment/Change Account Settings/I Want To Use A Nickname.


Chloe_Vee7

it still shows your name and the nickname in parenthesis - which defeats the purpose


RenoDriver

No. The customers and restaurants only see the nickname.


Chloe_Vee7

NOPE. I've had customers call me by both names after adding the nickname. Also, I have used the app and seen the driver's name and nickname in parenthesis


Chloe_Vee7

Go ahead and ask one of your customer's if they seem friendly... they see both names.

My customers call me by my name, sometimes. I have a nice name but it’s not common. It’s a bit odd.
