Want a refund?
Uber Eats typically only gives a full refund if your order never arrived. Expect a partial refund for missing items. Report issues in the Get help area of every order receipt to begin the process.
Steps to get help while waiting for your order
If you’re waiting for an order, the best way to get help is to use the support tools on the order tracking screen.
The tracking screen has options to cancel your order or get more help. Calling customer service will be one of the options.
Uber Eats customer service phone number
To speak to someone at Uber Eats, call 1-800-253-9377
Call Uber Eats customer service during an order to:
- Change the delivery address shortly after placing the order
- Add or change items in your order shortly after placing the order
- Cancel the order
Only Uber customer service agents can contact the restaurant to change your order or change your delivery address. And after a certain stage, only customer service can cancel your order.
If you call customer service to change your delivery address, be aware that your driver is not required to deliver to the new address. They can choose to deliver to the new address or cancel the order.
And if the new address is outside of the delivery zone, support will cancel your order.
If your order has been picked up by a driver
You can call or text message your driver to provide information about the drop-off. However, your driver can’t add items to the order or cancel the order for you.
To cancel an order after it has been picked up, you must call support.
How to cancel an Uber Eats order
The steps to cancel an order depend on how far along in the order process you are.
You can cancel from the order tracking screen before the order has been picked up and while the restaurant is preparing your order.
Cancel while your order is still being prepared: Tap Carts on the bottom of the screen and select the order. On the tracking page for the order, tap the three dots in the upper right corner, then tap Cancel Order.
Cancel after the order is picked up and on the way: Call customer service. You can’t cancel from the order tracking screen after a driver picks up your order.
Cancel fees: Pay a fee if you cancel too far into the order
Uber can charge you a cancellation fee if you cancel after the restaurant has begun preparing your order.
If you cancel after a courier picks up your order, you will be charged full price for the order.
How to contact your delivery driver
You can contact your delivery person once they are on the way to pick up your order from the restaurant.
After you match with a delivery driver, you will see their information on the order tracking screen. Tap the message bubble or phone icon to contact the driver.
Contact your driver to:
- Give additional instructions about the drop-off location that you didn’t put in your delivery notes
- If the driver is still at the restaurant, ask for free items like extra sauce or napkins. Do not ask to add extra paid items!
Your delivery courier has no control over the order’s contents, how fast the restaurant prepared the food, or any issues with your experience with the Uber app.
After the delivery is complete, you’ll no longer be able to call the driver.
How to get help after your order is delivered
After your order has been delivered, the best way to get help from Uber is to use the “Get help” section found at the bottom of every order receipt.
That’s where you can report missing items, poor food quality, long wait times, or other common issues.
Once you report the issue, a live chat with Uber Eats support will begin. You can wait for a response or add additional detail.
Tap the cart icon at the bottom of the app, then tap “Orders” at the top of the screen. Select your order and scroll to the “Get help” button.
The ‘Get Help’ feature is where you can report common issues like:
- Order never arrived
- Missing items, wrong items
- Issues with food quality
- Problems with applying promotions and free credits
- An issue with your delivery driver
A chat thread with Uber customer support will begin after you select an issue and provide more detail. Depending on the situation, you may receive a partial or full refund.
How to start a live chat with Uber Eats support at any time
A live chat with Uber Eats customer support will begin after you report an issue with an order. You can wait for a response or provide additional details about your problem.

The tools at help.uber.com are similar to the ones in the Get Help section of the Uber Eats app. Start by finding the order that you’re having an issue with, then select an issue from the menu.

Common Uber Eats problems & solutions
You can address most of the typical problems with an order by using the help features in the app. You don’t need to call customer service to get help with the most common problems.
Missing items from an order
If your order was missing items, or you received the incorrect items, you can report the issue to Uber Eats and get a refund on those items.
In the order receipt, scroll to “Get help” and select “Wrong or missing items.”
Your Uber Eats driver can’t replace any missing or incorrect items. Don’t contact your driver about missing items after the order is complete—they can’t replace items!
Order never arrived
You can get a full refund if your order never arrived. Scroll to “Get help” in the order receipt and select “My order never arrived.”
However, you might not get a refund if the order was a ‘leave at door’ order and the driver has photographic proof that they dropped it off.
How to get a refund from Uber Eats
There is no direct way to request a refund, but you might get your money back if you report an issue with your order.
Typically, Uber only issues full refunds if your order doesn’t arrive at all, or if there was some other serious incident during your delivery.
To get a partial or full refund, report your issue in the Get help section of the order receipt or at help.uber.com. Uber may respond by offering a refund.
For other issues—like missing items or slow service—you will only receive a partial refund or no refund at all.
Uber may decline to give you additional refunds if you’ve received too many refunds in the past.
