Uber Eats is shifting its delivery fee structure yet again. This time, the company announced that it would be lowering the base delivery fee on orders and adding on an additional service fee and small order fee. The changes are effective as of March 18.
The new delivery fee varies but it’s typically lower that the sliding scale of $2.49 to $6.49 that it was before, and the $5 flat delivery rate prior to that. In New York City, a homewrecker burrito from Moe’s Southwest Grill delivered via Uber Eats now costs $9.89, plus tax ($0.88), a delivery fee of $1.49, a service fee of $1.48, and a small order fee of $2.00, for a grand total of $15.74 before tip.
The service fee is calculated at 15 percent of a customer’s order, and the small order fee is implemented on orders that are $10 or less.
