In a new blog post, Uber Eats has announced the launch of an all-new bill splitting feature on the app, that will let you break down the bill and pay your share when ordering together.
Users will now be able to start a group order from within the Uber Eats app by first navigating to the restaurant you want to order from, hitting the three dots in the top-right corner of the page, and then hitting “group order.”
Uber wrote in its blog, “We know that Uber Eats consumers love bringing people together. We also know that they don’t like the financial responsibility of ordering for everyone. We get it. Now, for the first-time ever on a delivery app, anyone can create a group and allow individuals to order from the same restaurant and pay for whatever they’d like. Once everyone has placed their individual orders, those orders are added to the group cart for you (the host) to checkout. Then sit back and relax. All of the food for the group will arrive at the same time, so you can enjoy your meals together!”
“Once you’ve created a group order, you can set a checkout deadline that works best for your crew. Deadlines can be set up to seven days in advance, so everyone has plenty of time to get their order in, wrote the company, adding more intel about the reminder feature, saying, “Say goodbye to constantly bugging people to place their order. We’ve got your back—! reminding everyone to get their orders in on time, so you don’t have to.”
Furthermore, if you’re planning some type of get-together, Uber also gives you the option to create group orders up to seven days before the planned event. People can pick their food within a specific window of time, and Uber will notify them in case they forget.
