Top-performing full-time Bolt drivers in major cities such as Accra can make up to GHS5000 per month. Part-time drivers in major cities can make up to GHS2500 per month.
Bolt charges 20% to 25% commission on the final order price depending on the city — for both cash and card rides. However, this commission doesn’t apply to tips, bonuses, and airport or toll fees.
