Introducing cash deliveries

Uber Eats is now allowing people to pay for their orders in cash upon delivery. That means you may be receiving cash, making change, and getting your earnings even faster.

Cash icon = cash delivery

You’ll know if you’re making a cash delivery when you see a small cash icon in the app while on a trip.

Collect cash from customers

When you reach the customer, a screen with the cash amount due will appear. Once the customer pays this amount, you can complete the trip as usual.

Track your cash earnings

After each trip, you’ll see exactly how much cash you can keep. Money owed to Uber and the restaurant will be deducted from your digital earnings. Anything additional will need to be returned to Uber.

Settling your cash balance

One of the ways you can return cash to Uber is by paying for orders you are picking up in cash at participating restaurants. You’ll be notified of these opportunities in the app. If you do pay in cash, remember to ask the restaurant for the unique 4-digit code to enter into the app. Your balance will automatically update.

Payment methods

There are multiple ways to settle an outstanding balance with Uber

While a portion of the money you receive from cash deliveries is yours to keep, another portion is owed to Uber and the restaurant. There are multiple ways to settle this balance with Uber, including linking a debit or credit card within the app or, in some cities, dropping cash payments off at participating locations. The app will prompt you when you have an outstanding balance due. If a payment is not received by Uber, you may lose access to delivery trips that involve cash.

Pro Tip: Having change on hand

While we do encourage customers to pay the exact amount, in some cases you will be asked to provide change. We encourage you to carry change with you at all times to help deliveries run smoothly.
