Uber Eats - No Couriers Nearby - What Does This Mean?

June 14, 2023

Have you ever tried to order food from Uber Eats but received the message ‘No Couriers Nearby’? It can be very frustrating. But what does it mean? Well, there are a few reasons why this may happen. One reason is that the restaurant you selected hasn’t signed up with Uber Eats yet. Another reason is that there aren’t any couriers in your area at the moment. And lastly, it could be that the time of day you are ordering isn’t a popular delivery time for couriers in your area.

If you are experiencing this issue, there are a few things that you can try. One option is to wait a few minutes and then try again. If the problem persists, you can also contact Uber’s customer support. They are very helpful and will do their best to resolve the issue for you.

In some cases, the problem may be that you did not include a large enough tip when placing your order. This can sometimes delay the delivery as couriers will need to wait for a larger tip before accepting an order. If this is the case, you can try increasing your tip amount or choosing the “Priority Delivery” option if it is available in your area.

If you have tried all of these solutions and still cannot get your Uber Eats order delivered, you can always cancel the order and receive a refund. It is important to know that if you cancel an order, it will still count towards your driver’s earnings.
