If the cash payment option is available, you'll see it on the screen. As mentioned, this does not guarantee that the restaurant you are ordering from will accept cash payments. The restaurant probably doesn't allow cash through Grubhub. However, you can enter a prepaid Visa card or similar card and use it as a payment option.

Why don't most restaurants accept cash?

While some places still accept cash through GrubHub, most don't. The reason for this decision is quite simple. Paying with money complicates things. The GrubHub courier will have to take the cash from you and give it to the restaurant.

This increases mileage, takes longer to travel, and gives the restaurant no guarantee that you or the delivery person will pay. It makes sense that most restaurants would not agree to this, even if it is more convenient for the customer.

As mentioned, GrubHub is one of the few delivery services that accepts cash payments. Most of the competition stands out (Instacart, Postmates, Uber Eats, DoorDash and many others).

GrubHub also accepts many other payment options, including credit and debit cards, PayPal, Apple Pay, eGift, and Android Pay. This is a great alternative if the particular restaurant you're ordering from doesn't accept cash.

You can always tip in cash

The good news is that you can always give cash to your GrubHub messenger. These folks work primarily for tips and will appreciate anything that comes their way. So try to leave a generous tip if you are satisfied with the service.

You can tip via the GrubHub app if you want, but that doesn't make much sense if you're paying for the order with cash. However, tipping is your personal choice, so we leave it up to you.

In conclusion, some people try to deny the simple fact that cash still comes first. Sure, we now have bitcoin and many other modern payment methods, but nothing could replace paper bills. The only thing better than cash is gold because its value is permanent.

But let's not get carried away. Is there any reason you want to keep the cash? Do you find it more convenient? Do all online delivery services have to accept money? Feel free to discuss this and other related topics in the comments section below.

Grubhub Cash FAQ

How can I find out which restaurants accept cash on Grubhub?

Unfortunately, GrubHub doesn't make it easy to see what payment methods the company accepts. The only official option is to load your cart and see what payment methods are displayed. But you can also check the reviews. Although checking your bag will probably be faster, you may see something indicating the payment option.

I don't see an option to pay cash on Grubhub; Why not?

If the cash option is not listed, the restaurant does not offer the option. You can of course also call the restaurant directly and see if they offer delivery where you can pay cash. Today, the cash option is quite a risk for small businesses and grubhub drivers.

Why can't the delivery person pay the restaurant and I can pay the delivery person back?

Aside from the fact that this puts the delivery person at risk of paying for someone else's order, it also forces them to carry cash, which may not be safe either. Grubhub's official policy states that no driver can pay for a customer's order, and if he does, he certainly won't be refunded.
