How To Make New Uber Eats Accounts

So you’ve decided to sign up as a restaurant partner with Uber Eats. Excellent! That means you can get more customers by offering your customers the convenience of getting your food delivered directly to their homes or offices. And not just that, being a partner also comes with several benefits such as cash incentives, delivery fee reimbursement and other promotional offers. However, before you start accepting orders on Uber Eats, there are a few things you need to set up first:

Create an Uber Eats Partner Account

First and foremost, you need to create an Uber Eats partner account. You can do so by clicking on “Become a business” on the Uber Eats website, or by downloading the app and clicking on “Become a partner” on the app. You can also click here to sign up.

Once you sign up, you will have to fill in information such as your contact details, business name, business type, and if applicable, your state and local tax IDs. In case you don’t have a business name yet, you can choose something temporary such as “XYZ Food”. Once you’ve finished signing up, you will receive a confirmation email along with a PIN code.

Get a Food Safety Certification for Uber Eats

Uber Eats expects its restaurant partners to follow food safety guidelines and be certified by a Food Safety Authority (FSA). Once you become an Uber Eats partner, you will be required to upload a copy of the food safety certificate.

If your restaurant is brand new, you can get a food safety certification from an FSA and upload a copy of the certificate as soon as you start accepting Uber Eats orders. You can check out if an FSA is nearby by searching for one on the National Restaurant Association website. You can also click here to find a food safety certification provider near you.

If your restaurant has been around for a while and has a food safety certification, but the FSA’s name is not on the Uber Eats’s list of approved certifications, you need to get your food safety certification re-inspected. Once you get your re-inspection done, you can send a copy of the new certificate to Uber Eats.

Add your menu items and photos

Once you’ve signed up as an Uber Eats partner, you will have access to a menu builder. This menu builder allows you to add your menu items such as burgers, sandwiches, wraps, fries, nachos, etc. You will have to add the price of each of your menu items so that consumers can see the price while ordering.

If some of your menu items come in different sizes, you can also add that information. In addition to the menu items, you can also add pictures of your food so that consumers know what to expect when they order your food. You can add up to 10 pictures for each menu item (burger, sandwich, wrap, fries, etc.). It’s recommended that you add a picture of the food from different angles so that the consumers get an idea of what the food actually looks like.

Comply with Uber Eats requirements

Once you sign up for Uber Eats partner, you will be provided with a list of requirements that your restaurant needs to comply with. Some of the basic requirements include having clean seating areas, clean toilets, and a clear path from the parking lot to the restaurant’s entrance.

If your restaurant is located inside a shopping center, you will have to make sure that the path from the parking lot to your restaurant is clear and free of all obstacles. In addition, you will need to provide an accurate and appropriate menu, accurate pricing, and clear item descriptions (such as portion sizes, ingredients, and nutrition facts). You will also need to provide accurate contact information including the name of the restaurant and its address, as well as a phone number where consumers can contact you if they have questions or issues with the order.

Set up a payment method for Uber Eats deliveries

To sign up with Uber Eats as a restaurant partner, you will have to provide a payment method. You can provide any of the following payment methods: Credit or debit card, ACH, PayPal, Cash, or Cash equivalents (such as gift cards). If you choose to provide a debit card or credit card as your payment method, you will be charged a 2.9% transaction fee by Uber Eats and the card-issuing bank.

However, this fee will be waived if you are a small business owner with annual sales of less than $500,000. If you provide cash or cash equivalents (gift cards) as your payment method, there will be no transaction fee charged by Uber Eats. However, you will have to pay a payment fee to your bank for using the cash or gift card.

Conclusion

As you can see, there are quite a few things you need to set up before you can sign up as an Uber Eats partner. Once you’ve signed up, however, you can start taking orders on the app. It’s important to understand that you will not get a steady stream of orders from Uber Eats at all times.

You will occasionally get orders depending on the time of the day, the day of the week, and also the days of the month. That being said, if you want to get more customers, you can sign up to become an Uber Eats partner.
