Does UberEats accept PayPal?
Yes, fortunately for you and anyone who wants to use PayPal, UberEats does accept PayPal. This is definitely an accepted form of payment. So the next question is why won’t UberEats accept your PayPal.
UberEats accepts a few different payment methods and PayPal is one of them. This is different from some other delivery apps such as DoorDash who do not have a way for you to use PayPal on their app. You can use PayPal if you want to but it certainly is not a requirement.
Why Is UberEats Not Accepting PayPal?
The biggest and most common reason UberEats may not be accepting PayPal is because you haven’t verified your account. To use PayPal your account has to be confirmed and in good standing. So if you haven’t already, go and verify your PayPal account.
Another reason UberEats may not be accepting PayPal is that your PayPal information has been entered wrong. Or it could be that the credentials are incorrect in one way or another. Check your login credentials and make sure your PayPal is properly connected to your UberEats account.
What to Do When UberEats Doesn’t Accept PayPal?

You could try using a different account. First, check and make sure there is no rule or policy against creating more than one account. It could be a glitch within your system that is preventing you from being able to use PayPal to pay for your order.
Definitely go to your PayPal account and double-check the balance to make sure you have the money in there. There are so many people who try to place orders and another bill has come through and snatched some if not all of their money. So just check behind yourself and make sure you know for a fact your PayPal balance.
If you don’t know how much you have in your account you need to check. Don’t just guess and assume everything is good. This could really save you a phone call to support.

What Are Some PayPal Alternatives?
If for whatever reason you can’t get your PayPal to work try another form of payment. You can use credit, debit, Google Pay, or Apple Pay. Whatever you choose to use, make sure you have enough money in your balance to cover the cost of the order.
Don’t forget that you can use UberCash as well. This way you can add money directly to your UberEats account.
Your PayPal may not be working because somehow the payment method on file is incorrect or it may have expired. Debit cards expire all the time without us even knowing it. So when your PayPal refuses to work or go through, check that the card connected to your PayPal is not expired or low on funds.

Why Can’t I Pay UberEats With PayPal?
PayPal is one of the accepted forms of payment by UberEats. However, there may be something stopping you from using this payment method. It could be that you are not in a PayPal-enabled country.
Or it could be that you are in a PayPal-enabled country but you have your UberEats app set to the wrong country. It is easy to mistakenly choose the wrong country other than the country you are currently living in. You may have scrolled and clicked too fast or a slip of the finger could have caused you to choose the wrong country.
If you live in a country that UberEats does not accept PayPal from, you will not be allowed to use PayPal as your payment method. Just because you have a PayPal doesn’t mean that it is approved by UberEats. The main PayPal country is the United States.
