Title: Curb App
Post by: nyctaxinews on October 28, 2018, 05:11:42 AM
Can somebody tell me how much Curb charges the taxi driver (not the customer) for use of the app on a taxi fare?

It's hard for me to day but I will try to answer. They lump them all together. Curb,MTA,arro. If I do $125 in May curb and Arro I get $121. At the end of the month Verifone takes 5% (plus an outrageous monthly fee equipment rental). If they take the $4
plus 5% then it is more. I myself don't know if they take another 5%? It is possible I am paying 8% which will take a big chunk out of the $3.30+toll if any. The statements are pages long and impossible to figure out. Good question. Maybe someone can give a more comprehensive answer than mine.

I know that Verifone takes 5% of all CC payments including tolls and tips that are part of the payment.  For the first time someone I know did a Curb App call and an additional $4.71 was taken along with the 5% fee. When Verifone was asked why the $4.71 was taken the Verifone rep said it was the fee for the App call.
Can you comment on that?
