- What is Uber Eats?
Uber Eats is a platform that connects customers, restaurant partners and delivery persons in a marketplace. The technology we provide maintains the Uber Eats marketplace by both balancing the interests and improving the experiences of all users.
Uber Eats technology connects users by allowing:
- eaters to search for and order items from merchants
- merchants to advertise and sell their items to a wide base of eaters
- independent delivery persons to deliver items to eaters as sub-contractors of Uber Eats

- What are your fees?
Your fees include:
• Activation Fee– a fee, payable once per location, that contributes to the costs of setting you up with a welcome kit, tablet and professional photo shoot. This fee may be deducted from your Item Payments in weekly instalments.
• Uber Eats Fee – fee is charged to you for every order you receive from your customers via the Uber Eats app. It varies depending on the option you choose.
- How are orders completed?
An order can be completed through different options, including:
