Starting July 17, Uber will let drivers accept tips.

To celebrate, the rideshare company is matching every tip given by riders to drivers on July 18.

Riders can tip their drivers up to 2 times the total fare of their trip, capped at $100. The service is optional, and tipping does not affect rider ratings. Drivers have to rate their rider first before they can see the receipt.

As a rider, you have up to 7 days after the trip to rate the driver and add a tip. If you rate your driver without tipping, you can go back and add a tip up to 30 days later.

Tipping is available on both Uber rides and UberEATS.
