FAQ's

Why do I need to submit a payment method before my account is activated?

By requesting credit card information upfront, Lyft Business is able to better provide a streamlined and clarified experience while helping to ensure that payments are made promptly and securely. Additional credit cards can be added at a later time, and your organization will not be billed until your riders use Lyft.

 

What happens if I haven’t received the verification amounts yet?

Authorizations may take up to 24 hours to appear on your credit card statement. If you don’t see the amounts posted within 48 hours, please contact your bank.

 

What happens if my payment verification fails?

Are there monthly fees?

No, there are no monthly fees for using Lyft Business.

 

Where can I find company TIN number?

You can find your EIN on IRS/tax forms, your business bank account/statements, or your business credit report.
