How to Become a Delivery Partner

If you're new to Uber, sign up for an UberEATS partner account here!

If you're already an uberX partner, head here to opt-in to Delivery, or swing by our Greenlight Hub. If you sign up to participate in Delivery, you will receive both uberX and Delivery requests. Be sure to choose ‘Biking’ or 'Vehicle' under transportation method.

Uber vehicle decals

Under local regulations, all partners must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place it on your front passenger and rear driver windshields facing outward. You can remove it when you decide to go offline and save it for the next time. Pro Tip: keep the paper it comes with to place your sticker on when not in use.

Once you become an Uber partner, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it within 7 business days. If you ever need a new decal after you become a partner, you can request a new one be mailed to you. You can also pick one up at your local Greenlight Hub.
