UberEats New 15% Service Fee Now In Place (Plus Small Order & Delivery Fees)
Uber has made changes to the way fees are changed on UberEats effective on March 18th, 2019. Booking fees were replaced by:
- Delivery fees vary for each restaurant based on things like your location and availability of nearby couriers. You’ll always know how much before selecting a restaurant.
- Service fees equal 15% of an order’s subtotal. This fee does not apply to restaurants that deliver their own orders.
- Small order fees apply to orders less than $10. You can add more items to remove this fee.
This is a massive massive increase in fees. 15% of an order’s subtotal and then additional delivery fees on top of that seems ridiculous, especially on larger orders. I use UberEats because of convenience, but if the fees get too high then I’ll simply stop using the service altogether. This also has the potential to make the American Express Platinum Uber credit a lot less useful. In January UberEats introduced a service fee of 10% in some areas and a small order fee of $2, but it looks like they want to be even more aggressive with this new round of fees. To help offset these new fees we recommend checking if there are any current active UberEats promo codes.
