Requirements for these gigs are straightforward, the sign up process can be fast, and the gig is perfect if you need a flexible side income.
Uber Eats is an on-demand food delivery app. Customers use Uber Eats to order from local restaurants and stores, and delivery people pick up and deliver the orders.
