What’s new in Uber Eats? September 2021

September 20 / Australia

Here’s the September product round-up.

Launch 1

Say it with a story: New Restaurant storytelling on Uber Eats

A new way to share updates and help connect with more customers is here. The Uber Eats Stories feature lets you post regular updates to your storefront, so you can keep your followers in the loop on what’s new and unique about your menu and cuisine. Find out from your account manager how to build even better connections with new and existing customers.

How it works: 

Step 1: Log in to Uber Eats Manager

To log in to Uber Eats Manager, visit restaurant.uber.com and enter your credentials. Once logged in, locate the Marketing tab in the left-hand navigation. 

Step 2: Provide content details 

Simply provide a headline (25 character limit) and body text (160 character limit) that lets customers know what’s going on. This is the perfect space to share special deals, recent changes, new services, seasonal promotions and more. Get creative — you can post up to 20 Stories at once. Your background image will automatically be filled and formatted using your Uber Eats header photo. 

Step 3: Review with Uber Eats and go live

Review your Story content, accept the Terms & Conditions, then click Got it in the bottom right corner to submit it to our team for review. Reviews can take up to 48 hours for approval. You can check the status of your submission in the All Campaigns section of the Marketing tab. 

Use your account to post regular updates to the in-app storefront. Keep customers engaged and monitor performance via Uber Eats Manager. Stories stay live on the app for 7 days and you can have up to 20 Stories live at any given time.
