Spotlight on pickups

When you’re ready to deliver, you can go online in the Driver app. The app will surface available delivery requests near you. You can tap to accept.

The restaurant will be expecting you, but you can let the staff know you're there to pick up an order from the Uber Eats app. Delivery people have told us they match the name and the order number in the app with the order to confirm they have the right one before leaving the restaurant.

Spotlight on pickups

Here's how it works:

1. Go online and receive an order to pick up near you.

2. Tap to accept.

3. When you arrive at the restaurant, let the staff know you're there to pick up an order through Uber Eats.

4. Before you leave, match the name and the order number in the app to confirm that you have the right order.

Locating your customer

If you’re unable to find the customer when delivering, you can call or message them in the app. If they don’t answer, you can tap the banner that appears to indicate that they didn’t answer. This will send them a notification.

If they don’t contact you quickly, you can follow the prompts to end the delivery.

A high number of canceled deliveries may indicate fraudulent activity in violation of our Community Guidelines and the Platform Access Agreement.

Tips regarding pickups

  • Waiting at the restaurant

    Restaurants sometimes take longer than usual to prepare the food. You can tap the order details and report that the order is Not ready.

  • Get delivery details in the app

    Once you arrive at the delivery location, the app will give you details that the customer has provided, such as intercom and floor numbers that will help you locate them.

  • Phone service

    Drivers and customers are more likely to connect in areas where they have service.

  • Incorrect delivery addresses

    If a customer contacts you with a different address than the one they entered in the app, you're free to accept or decline the request. If you can and want to deliver the order to the new address, contact our support team so they can adjust your trip fare. Otherwise, if you decline to deliver to the new address, you can dispose of the order and contact us to make us aware of the situation.
