UberEats To Make Changes To Fees On March 18th, 2019 (15% Service Fee, Small Order Fee & Delivery Fees)
Uber has announced that they are making changes to the way fees are changed on UberEats on March 18th, 2019. Booking fees will be 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 seems like a 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.
