Bringing Apple Pay to Uber Eats


At Eats, we’re always thinking about ways to enhance your delivery experience. That’s why we’re bringing Apple Pay to our app, so you can pay for your order faster, more conveniently and securely. Apple Pay will be rolling out to customers in nearly 20 markets in the coming weeks.

Riders who have been relying on Apple Pay since we combined forces in 2014 already know that paying in apps with Apple Pay is as simple as a glance with Face ID or the touch of a finger with Touch ID on our iPhone. There’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or type in billing information.

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

We’re excited to offer this service that’s transforming payments. Apple Pay will be rolling out to customers in Belgium, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the United States, so keep an eye out in your Uber Eats app for this convenient payment option.
