Payouts and fees incurred for a Booking

- The Service fee equates to 15% of the total Trip's fare after mandatory tax deductions.
Payout to the Driver
- After a Trip, the Payment made by a Rider goes through a clearing period until the cutoff time of the same day of the Booking. During this clearing period, Riders have the opportunity to dispute their Booking on the Trip. In the absence of a dispute during this clearing period, the Payment is cleared after the cutoff time.
- Once the Payment is cleared, the Payment is ready to be sent out to the Driver as a Payout.
At this point, the Driver must have a valid Payout Method set in their OWTO account. The Driver may choose to receive Payouts using one Payout Method:
- (i) Into either the partner’s preferred account or what the company’s available disbursement methods are.
- d. Once a valid Payout Method has been entered by the Driver and the Payment has passed the clearing period, a Payout is ready to be sent to the Driver. Payouts are sent to Drivers once within the next 24 to 48 hours after the day ends.
- After a Payout has been sent to a Driver, there are additional Processing Times for the Payout to reach the Driver’s preferred Payout account, depending on the selected Payout Method.
- If a valid Payout Method isn’t entered within twelve (12) months of the Payout being created, the Payout is forfeited and funds are deemed to belong to OWTO.

Offline In-cabin A&V recording

- You as a partner and/or a rider agrees and gives your consent to be recorded through the video and audio collected via the device of the partner.
- The OWTO feature’s recorded files will only be used as a complaint reference incase a partner or a rider files for one.
- The recording will be saved inside the partner’s device in a maximum of 2 days (48 hours). It will follow a specific set of procedure so the partners won’t be able to access the files. Every file will be compressed, encrypted and saved on a specific directory on the partner’s device.
- As a partner, you agree that the application will access and create a folder inside your mobile phone where the recordings will be saved.
- As a partner, you agree that whenever you’re mobile phone is connected to the internet and an upload request is sent through the app because of a complaint initiated either by you or one of your riders, the app through your profile will upload the requested file to our system.
- As a partner, you also agree that any attempt, successful or unsuccessful, to access the recordings for any personal intents is a valid ground for your partner account to be PERMANENTLY DEACTIVATED.
In the event that the partner’s device doesn’t upload the requested file within 24 hours (Granted that the complaint is within the 48 hour window), depending on the gravity of the complaint of the rider, the partner’s profile is subject to one of the following after a careful review:

Silent Distress Signal (SOS Feature)

- While the in-cabin recording feature is ongoing and an unfortunate incident happens that threatens either the partner’s or the rider’s safety, either one of them can trigger this feature through the said means above.
- The app will then send a notification to OWTO’s command center and the in-cabin recording switches to livestream for the command center personnel to access real-time. The vehicle’s location will be sent to the command center’s system as well.
