Why is the tip option not as prevalent in Australia?

  1. After a recent trip to the U.S I discovered that on the customer app over there, once the trip is completed, first you will rate the driver, then the next option is to tip the driver. I know tipping is not as much of a social norm here in Australia, but is there any harm in this becoming an option? It would definitely increase the number of tips you receive and thus providing extra incentive to work. I have emailed Uber and am waiting on a response from them but would like to know your thoughts...

    I think it would be a great idea. I've had 3 riders on 3 different trips give me tips in the past (each of the 3 riders were from the USA).

    Totally different Economy in the US, most workers are on as low as $9 a hour.
    It's a bit like a hidden 5stars, most worker's there work there ass off to please to get there tips.
    It's simply not how Australia works. Would you send your son or daughter to work somewhere, just to suck upto that pressure to make an exrta buck.
    Not likely and Tips sound great, but it's just simply not like that.
