It’s now easier than ever to pay for Uber Eats orders, thanks to the arrival of Apple Pay.
The food delivery service has finally adopted Apple’s mobile payments platform in almost 20 countries. It makes completing a transaction as easy as tapping your finger or scanning your face.
Apple Pay was first adopted by the regular Uber in 2014. Almost five years later, it’s finally an option inside Uber Eats. It means you’ll no longer have to fill out billing information for every order.
Uber Eats adopts Apple Pay
Apple Pay joins PayPal, Venmo, and traditional payment options inside the food ordering app. It brings Uber Eats up to date with rivals like Grubhub, Postmates, and Seamless.
Uber points out the security advantages of Apple’s payment service — like the fact that credit and debit card numbers are never seen by Apple or Uber.
“Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device,” the company explains. “Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.”
What’s more, Apple Pay supports Touch ID and Face ID, which means you don’t even need to login or enter a password.
18 markets supported first
Apple Pay will be available inside Uber Eats in 18 markets initially.
Belgium, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, U.K., and the U.S. are all supported.
Uber says the update will be rolling out “in the coming weeks,” so keep your eyes peeled for an Eats update.
