Access to These APIs May Require Written Approval From Uber

Uber’s APIs are always under development and as such are subject to changes according to our Versioning & Upgrade policy. As part of Uber’s ongoing privacy improvements, we’ve updated our Developer API program with new scope access policies for third party applications. For further information, please refer to our Getting Started guides.

The Uber Eats Marketplace APIs includes a variety of webhooks for incoming orders, store notifications, and order cancellations. In order for your service to receive webhooks from Uber, set your webhook URL in the developer dashboard Setup section, under **Webhooks > Primary Webhook URL. All of the webhooks notifications from Uber’s platform will be sent to your unique primary webhook URL configured within the developer dashboard.

Uber Eats Marketplace Webhook Notifications

The Order API sends notifications to your app’s configured webhook. Each notification has a corresponding event_type:

event_type Description
orders.notification Sent whenever an order is created.
orders.failure Sent when an order is cancelled.
(Only applies to stores configured on API version “0.1”.)
orders.release (If fast order release is enabled) Sent when an order is configured for Fast Order Release and courier has reach geo-fence.
orders.scheduled.notification Sent whenever a scheduled order is created.
(Only applies to stores configured on API version “0.1” and where scheduled orders are enabled.)
orders.cancel Sent when an order is cancelled.
(Only applies to stores NOT configured on API version “0.1”.)
store.provisioned Sent whenever a store has granted access to your application/client ID.
store.deprovisioned Sent whenever a store has been removed access from your application/client ID.
order.fulfillment_issues.resolved Sent whenever a customer has confirmed change on Resolve Order Fulfillment endpoint. Notification when a store’s online status has changed. Requests the scope be whitelisted for your client ID.
Order JSON body parameters

The table below describes each parameter in the order webhook notification. Review the Additional sections below for alternative webhooks:

Once a webhook is received, you can pull the full order information using the resource_href, which corresponds to the Get Order Endpoint endpoints. The resource_id corresponds to the order_id used in the Order API. Your resource_href can be adjusted to your API version using the PATCH /pos_data.

Example Order Notification

Order webhooks are listed within API reference Order API Suite

Webhook Security

All webhooks sent from Uber contain a signature in the header of the request so that your app can verify that the sender is Uber.

Webhooks requests contain an X-Uber-Signature header. The value of this field is a lowercased hexadecimal HMAC signature of the webhook HTTP request body, using the client secret as a key and SHA256 as the hash function.

Python Example

digester =, webhook_body, hashlib.sha256)
return digester.hexdigest()
Expected response
  1. Your service should POST a 200 response status code with an empty response body to acknowledge receipt of the webhook event. If no acknowledgement is received, Uber will continue to retry the webhook according to the retry logic described below.

  2. After acknowledging receipt of the webhook, you must explicitly POST /accept_pos_order or /deny_pos_order within 11.5 minutes. Otherwise the order will time out and auto-cancel. Order acceptances should be posted as quickly as possible to minimize Eater cancellations. Note: If your store is set up to receive robocalls for unaccepted orders, a robocall will be triggered if no Accept/Deny is posted after 90 seconds.

Retry logic

If Uber receives either of 500, 502, 503, 504 status codes, timeout or any network error, the webhook event will be retried. The first retry will be sent 10 seconds after the initial event. The following events will be resent based on an exponential backoff algorithm, starting at 30 seconds after the 10s retry, then again after 60 seconds, then after 120 seconds, and so on until a response is received or until 7 total events were sent without a response.

Set up your webhook URL

To test the webhook, set a valid webhook URL and place an order in your test store. Your service (a single webhook URL) can receive webhooks for multiple stores, as long as the developer account’s UUID is mapped to each individual store (org). When your service receives events, you’ll need to use the user_id (which corresponds to store_id) from the webhook to map it to the right store for notifications and order injections.

  1. In the developer dashboard Select Setup, under *Webhooks, enter your primary webhook URL, and click SAVE. At this time, Uber Eats Marketplace does not support multiple webhook URLs to be configured.

For testing purposes, you may want to setup your own webserver or use a third-party hosting provider to receive webhooks.

Test the webhook

Place an order on Uber Eats to send a webhook notification to your service.

  1. Sign in to Uber Eats with your test developer account and set the delivery address as the test store address. Place an order (you do need to enter any payment information). Uber will send an order notification event to the webhook URL.

If your test store is not showing up as available on Uber Eats, make sure your menu’s service_availability is set to encompass the time of testing. If the current time is within the store hours you have set and your test store is still appearing as unavailable, open an incognito window. Sign in to Uber Eats Orders, the browser-based version of the Uber Eats order management app, with your test store credentials. Ensure that the store is set to Accept Orders.

  1. Check if the webhook was received. Your service should have received a notification request from Uber, with the request body similar to the example notification.

  2. Acknowledge that your service received the webhook by sending a 200 status code response.

You can modify the web app for your own debugging and viewing needs. The app is set to print out the request headers and body data. It also responds with a 200 status code to acknowledge receipt of the event.

If you did not receive a webhook notification, make sure you used a valid webhook URL and have enabled your service to receive requests. If you have multiple stores, use the user_id (which corresponds to store_id) from the webhook to map events to the right store.
