Tips and tricks for improving order accuracy

May 25 / Australia

We want to support you to improve order accuracy and enhance the delivery experience for your customers.

How can I improve order accuracy?

We’ve pulled together a few tips and tricks you can implement to help improve order accuracy:

Keep your item availability up to date
  • When you run out of something, make sure that you mark it as out of stock so you don’t leave customers feeling disappointed
  • You can do this in your Uber Eats Orders app, under Item Availability
Organise your packing area 
  • Make it easier for your staff to pack and hand off orders
  • Drinks, condiments and cutlery are often missed since they’re usually the last things to be added
  • Large orders, combos and value packs are prone to order errors
Pack with pride
  • If an order needs to be packed into multiple bags, clearly labelling each bag can help avoid mix ups. You can also use a sticker or staples to secure the bags together
  • You can protect items from spillage by using cling film to add an additional seal to liquids
  • Check out the Detpak Delivery Notes blog for more useful information on how you can package your orders with pride
Use the time management tools
  • You can use the time management tools in your Uber Eats Orders app to help manage incoming orders
  • If you’re under the pump, consider enabling Busy Mode or delaying individual orders in your Uber Eats Orders app
Delegate staff
  • Ensure the appropriate number of staff are available to service both in-store and Uber Eats orders
