What to do if your Lyft subscription is billed through a different company?

Here's how to cancel your Lyft subscription when billed through a different company that is not the app/playstore or paypal.

Sometimes, you may find that you made a subscription through another company whether you were aware or not at the time of subscribing. To change this you might have to sign in the company's website or directly reach out to the content provider.

Generally, here are two steps you can take if you find yourself in that fix:

  1. Finding the company's information, then reaching out. Contact Lyft here →
  2. If the company has an app they developed in the Appstore, you can try contacting Lyft, Inc. (the app developer) for help through the details of the app.

    Used to be better

    I don’t know what’s been going on with this app, but it has been absolutely frustrating and getting worse. Today I requested a pickup, and automatically it asks if I want to be picked up at work (I’m assuming because I request there a lot), but today I was a few blocks away so I had to adjust where I wanted to be picked up. I set my current location as pickup and confirmed it. I got a notification when the driver was a minute away, I check the app, and he’s at my work. The place I made sure it wasn’t set to pick me up. So I cancelled the ride, asked for the $5 cancellation fee to be reversed, and tried again. I TRIPLE checked that my location was set probably and yet, the driver was set to pick me up at work, the wrong location. This time however, I clicked “edit pickup” and dragged the curser directly over my location, DIRECTLY, over it, clicked confirm and suddenly the cursor automatically moves a block away from where I placed it and then won’t let me change again. So I had to call my driver and give him my own directions to find me. My 10 minute trip quickly turned into much longer. I never had these experiences with Lyft before but recently they’ve been happening so often it might just be worth it to take the bus.

    Need an easier way to get receipts for expense reporting

    Been using Lyft for a while when it became my company’s preferred ride share provider. The service itself has been great. My gripe is the receipts you get. The email receipts you send after a ride are totally useless for expense reporting. The format you use doesn’t allow the payment info to print on the page. I even tried landscape mode and it still doesn’t work. You have a zillion business users. We need to attach receipts to expense reports electronically. PDF versions that are concise and under one page are what we need. As it is now, I’m forced to snap a photo/JPG on my phone and then convert it to PDF and then email it to myself. That’s nuts! The email you send takes 3 pages to print, and even then, the format doesn’t have the expense info on it because of the crazy formatting you use. I tried going to my account on your website and there is no ride history data to allow you to get a receipt there. You guys really put no thought into making this easy for business users. If I have to keep doing this I will probably just go back to Uber simply to get receipts easier. I’d gladly talk to anyone there about this. Thanks.

    Better than Uber!

    It’s more affordable with the wait and save thing and the customer service was good when I contacted them when I had an issue, like I put the wrong location things like that. I don’t have a car yet so it’s a good way to get around and better than Uber. That’s why I had to delete my app with a remaining balance due. It’s not worth getting over charge and paying late fees when the driver goes to the wrong location or say they have arrive when they haven’t. So Lyft is better because there’s not really a lot of silly fees and rude customer service because Uber will not have any understanding towards their customers I was like them for over a year and still didn’t get the respect I deserved for being a loyal member, but Lyft is way better. Although their gps routes are better than Lyft who usually makes you get stuck in traffic if you don’t know where you’re going but the price doesn’t change with Lyft if you change the route compare to Uber. The map pin points needs improvements and the drivers need to follow instructions or at least have a better way to communicate through with them like Uber app because sometimes they don’t answer or respond.

    Cheap Rides for Drivers and Terrible Customer Service!!!

    I’m a Lyft and Uber Driver for one year now. At the normal rate, Lyft pays Drivers a hair more than Uber. There is hardly any Primetime and when there is, it’s at a very low percentage except when there is extremely inclement weather. As a full time driver driving for both Companies, the only way to make a profit is through Primetime and Surge, period. A good example of how cheap the driver pay is from Lyft is earlier this week they had an available scheduled ride to take someone from Englewood Cliffs, NJ to Philly, PA for a payment between $101 and $111-that is offensive and highway robbery. That’s clearly a loss to any driver. By the time you factor in tolls, gas, wear and tear on your car and time spent not being able to pick up in PA until you hit NJ, it’s def not worth it. Their customer service is the worst, period. They outsource to the Philippines and they are ALL trained to be very polite but that’s it-no knowledge to assist you. Their scheduled rides are not guaranteed so although you are the “designated” driver, you are NOT guaranteed to get the passenger-outrageous! I hardly turn on my Lyft App and instead drive for Uber more which I might add isn’t much better.

    Lyft should give bonuses to their perfect drivers

    I have used Lyft & Uber and I can easily say I will never use Uber again not because the drivers are terrible but because the UBER platform is horrible. In fact I deleted that app because of poor customer service. Now to Lyft. The drivers are incredibly polite & happy. They seem to enjoy working for the company but one thing I wish the company would do is have some sort of incentives for their drivers rather than just take their percentage and forget about the drivers. After all it’s the drivers using their vehicles, fuel, insurance & phones. The least Lyft can do is match the tips the drivers get or give 50% bonus on top of tips. Doing this will just motivate the drivers to maybe add bottled water, keep their cars more clean or even get more frequent washes. Lyft, invest into your assets from one business owner to another. If not you will just be another Uber when Tesla comes out with their ride share company. Constantly strive to be better or you will fall behind in the game because right now all you are is a online platform taking a percentage from drivers who knocked out local cab drivers.
