How do I scan Uber Eats code?

If you want to scan an Uber Eats code, you can do so through your camera phone. Simply open your camera app and point it at the QR code in the restaurant. Your device will automatically direct you towards making the payment. This QR code scanning facility for Uber Eats is only available in the restaurants if you are choosing to dine-in or pick-up your order.

Payment methods in Uber Eats

Those who are using Uber Eats to order food will be thrilled knowing that the app allows multiple forms of payment methods. The various payment methods that are allowed in Uber Eats are listed in the points below.

  • The conventional form of payments such as credit cards and debit cards are obviously allowed here. Online banking or net-banking is also allowed for customers.
  • Digital wallets like Apple pay, Amazon pay and Google pay are also being allowed today. More and more digital wallet options are being processed into the collection to increase the convenience of the customer.
  • Cash options are also available in certain countries. However, this feature is not present in the United States where only cashless options are allowed.
  • Uber Cash is also allowed for payments in Uber Eats. Uber Cash can be purchased by the customer or is given in the form of gift cards and even refunds from Uber Eats.

Types of fees in Uber Eats

Uber Eats has several types of fees that the customer needs to pay. Some of these are mandatory while others come up in certain situations. The various fees that customers can come across in Uber Eats have been described in the section below.

The actual cost of the food

The actual cost of the food in Uber Eats is probably the biggest chunk that the customer needs to pay. The cost of the meal in Uber Eats will be slightly higher than that present at the physical restaurant. The cost largely depends on the type of the cuisine and even the price range that the restaurant operates in. However, this can be reduced through the use of promo codes.

The delivery fees

The delivery fee to bring the food to the customer from the restaurant is another big chunk. This delivery fee depends on the location of the restaurant and even the location of the customer and the distance between the two. Members of Uber One do not have to pay any delivery fee as long as their order subtotal is above the minimum limit.

The service fee

The service fee in Uber Eats was introduced much later, long after the platform had started operating. This service fee is usually 10 percent of the order subtotal and completely goes to Uber Eats. Uber Eats has maintained that this service fee mainly goes towards the maintenance of the app.

The busy fee

There is also a busy fee in Uber Eats. This busy fee is given for those orders which are placed during peak hours. The peak hours in Uber Eats are usually the lunch hours during weekdays. The peak hours also cover evenings during weekends. The busy fee is applied as the demand for food delivery is much higher than the number of available delivery drivers.

The delivery adjustment fee

The delivery adjustment fee will be applied only if the customer is making changes to their order after it has been placed. This can be in the form of addition of sides or accompaniments. It can also be applied if the customer is changing the location to which the order needs to be delivered. This fee can depend on the level of changes made by the customer.

The cancellation fee

Uber Eats is pretty strict about cancellations as it values the time and effort of its restaurant merchants as well as its delivery partners. The cancellation fee in Uber Eats will be applied if the customer is canceling their order after the restaurant has accepted it. However, if the user is canceling before the merchant has accepted it, they might be entitled to a refund.

The priority fee

Uber Eats also delivers orders on priority status to those customers who need it in a very short span of time. This priority fee is a small amount and paying it guarantees that the delivery driver will not stop for any pick-ups or deliveries on the way to the present customer. In doing so, the customer can get their order pretty quickly, even during peak hours or busy hours.
