About this project

 

PAX is a smart box to accept Cash or Credit Card tips on Uber rides. PAX makes it effortless to accept tips. Whether your passengers are carrying cash or only credit cards, they can give you a tip in less than 30 seconds.

 

We have created Pax Tips because we believe Uber drivers deserve tips. Despite all the requests, petitions and demands by drivers to have a tipping option, Uber has not yet included a tipping option. At the same time, Uber rates keep falling, making it difficult for drivers to make ends meet.

 

  No cash? No problem!

 But cash is awesome too!

 

PAX is a box that makes it super easy to accept cash or credit card tips. 

Accepting Cash  

The cash box is a typical tip jar box. It measures 8 by 5 by 1.75 inches. Money is accessed through a side door that's difficult to access unless the box is unmounted.  

Accepting Credit Cards  

PAX has an interactive screen and a simple tipping interface that allows riders to tip with a credit card in under 30 seconds. PAX have extremely low credit card processing fees. Just 3%. Nothing else. For every $1 you make in tips, you keep 97 cents and only pay 3 cents for credit card processing.

Currently the PAX box works in the US and Canada.  

Headrest Mount  

The headrest mount can be used with any vehicle model that has seats with a headrest. It can be mounted on the driver side or passenger side. Passenger side recommended.  

Data Connection  

PAX is able to accept tipping transactions in offline mode, but will need data connection to process them. This data connection will be available through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi syncing with the driver phone. PAX has very low bandwidth requirements, with less than 1MB a day even for busy tipping days.

Risks and challenges

The primary components of the PAX tipping box are the cash box, interactive screen and credit card processing application. Some potential risks include:

Production delays. Coordinating with an overseas factory and maintaining quality throughout every step is a challenge. In addition, fulfilment and shipping can be a challenge with large orders. We will tackle each step carefully, and our the target is to ship out units is July 2017.

Certification delays: PAX must be tested and approved by various independent agencies. This might introduce some additional delays.

There is some risk that items will not come exactly as pictured, due to manufacturing considerations. The promised function will not be different, and any style changes if any will be iterative and non-significant to the original look and feel.
