How Do I Pay With Apple Pay on Grubhub?

How Do I Pay With Apple Pay on Grubhub?

To pay with Apple Pay on Grubhub, you will first need the following:

  1. An Apple device like an iPad, iPhone, or MacBook
  2. Apple Pay must be set up on the device you’re using or a different Apple device that’s signed in with the same Apple ID
  3. If you’re using a different Apple device where you haven’t set up Apple Pay, have the second device nearby and ready so you can authorize the purchase before the request expires

Follow these steps to use Apple Pay on Grubhub:

  1. Use an Apple device to browse through Grubhub, either the app or the website when logged in
  2. Add items to your bag as usual
  3. When you’re done, proceed to checkout
  4. Go through your order and add delivery instructions if you want to
  5. Below the delivery instructions section is the payment section. Click on this and select Apple Pay
  6. If you’ve already set Apple Pay up and authorized Grubhub on the device you’re using, it should go through. Otherwise, you’ll get a prompt for permission on a device that already has access
  7. Verify your identity using Face ID or Touch ID to complete the process

When you’re using Apple Pay on the device for the first time, authorization is easy if you have a nearby device where it’s already set up and you’re signed in to the same Apple ID.

Apple devices are linked using an Apple ID, meaning you can carry over functions across platforms as long as they’re signed in to the same account.

So, for example, if you’re using a Macbook to place an order and choose Apple Pay but haven’t set it up, you could authorize the transaction from an Apple Watch as long as it’s signed in with the same Apple ID.

Aside from Apple Pay, Grubhub also accepts the following payment methods:

  1. Cash
  2. Credit cards
  3. Debit cards
  4. Electronic gift cards
  5. Paypal
  6. Venmo

Unlike Apple Pay, you can only use Venmo and Paypal to place orders on Grubhub when you’re on the mobile app.
