Beat the Clock: Quick Tips on How to Cancel Your Uber Eats Delivery
You’ve placed an order with Uber Eats, but now you need to cancel it. What do you do?
We know that sometimes things come up, and you need to cancel your order. That’s why we’ve put together a few quick tips on how to do just that. Keep reading for all the info you need to cancel your Uber Eats delivery.
How to Locate and Cancel Your Uber Eats Order
The first step is locating your Uber Eats order. You should be able to find this information in the email you received confirming your order. The subject line of the email will read “Your Uber Eats order from [restaurant name].”
Once you have the order number, open the Uber Eats app and go to the Me tab. Tap on Order History and then find the order you want to cancel. Tap on Cancel Order and follow the prompts.
Is It Possible to Cancel an Uber Eats Order After Delivery?
In most cases, yes, it is possible to cancel an Uber Eats order after delivery. However, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First, you’ll need to contact Uber Eats as soon as possible. The sooner you reach out, the easier it will be to cancel the order. Second, there may be a cancelation fee assessed. This fee will vary depending on the restaurant from which you ordered.
Finally, it’s important to note that not all restaurants allow for cancelations after delivery. If the restaurant you ordered from is one of these, then you unfortunately won’t be able to cancel your order.
What Does Canceling Your Uber Eats Mean for Your Bank Account?
Canceling your Uber eats order is simple. You just have to make sure you do it within the designated timeframe.
If you cancel your order more than 5 minutes after you placed it, you’ll be charged a $5 cancelation fee. However, if you cancel your order within the first 5 minutes, then you won’t be charged anything.
It’s important to note that this also applies to orders that have already been placed but not yet been picked up. If you cancel an order that’s already been accepted by the driver, then you’ll be charged the $5 fee.
Refunds and Potential Cancelation Fees
Once you’ve tapped cancel, you may be wondering if you will receive a refund of your order. The answer to this question depends on a few factors, like how far along the delivery driver is and if there are any applicable cancelation fees.
If your order is still in the process of being prepared in the restaurant, then you should see a full refund within 24-48 hours. However, if the driver has already picked up your order and is on the way to deliver it, then there may be a cancelation fee associated with the order which is usually around $5-10.
And lastly, if the driver has already arrived at your location when you cancel, then unfortunately you won’t receive any refunds for your order due to Uber Eats’ strict policy. So make sure to double check where your driver is before confirming any cancelations!
What Happens if You Change Your Mind After You Requested a Delivery?
Don’t worry if you change your mind after requesting a delivery through Uber Eats. You have the option to cancel the order up until the delivery partner has accepted it. The cancelation can be done through the app or website by tapping “Cancel Order” in the top right of your screen.
If you’ve been charged for an order you requested but later decided to cancel, your refund will be processed as soon as possible. Depending on your payment method, it can take anywhere from 5 to 10 business days for the refund to appear in your account.
For orders that already have been accepted by a delivery partner before you decide to cancel, you’ll still be able to cancel but won’t receive a refund for that order. It’s best to evaluate if you actually want the food before ordering, and keep an eye on your app for when the order is about to arrive so that you can make any changes if needed.
Troubleshooting Tips in Case You Can’t Cancel Your Order
If you find yourself in a situation where you can’t seem to cancel your order, there are a few troubleshooting tips that may help. Firstly, try logging out of the app, then back into it and visit your account page to confirm if the order has been successfully canceled. Alternatively, try using another device or browser to see if this resolves the problem.
If that doesn’t work, contact Uber Eats customer service via their website or app for further guidance. Explain your situation and that you’ve tried all possible options to cancel without success. When you get through to an operator, they should be able to take over and cancel the order on your behalf. It’s worth noting that if the restaurant has already begun preparing the food, they may not be able to stop it and therefore still charge you for the delivery costs – so please make sure it is canceled as quickly as possible!
Canceling your Uber Eats order is pretty simple, and can be done in a few taps. The process is a little different if you’re trying to cancel an order that’s already in progress, but it’s still pretty straightforward.
If you’re not happy with your Uber Eats experience, or if you have any issues with your order, be sure to get in touch with customer support so they can help resolve the issue.
