Uber Eats now has Apple Pay support in nearly 20 markets

Ride-hailing giant Uber has announced that it has added Apple Pay support to its food delivery service, Uber Eats, as well in nearly 20 countries, as Tech Crunch first reported.

Users can now use Apple Pay directly in the Uber Eats App either through Touch ID or Face ID to authenticate their purchase instead of giving their full billing information. Uber Eats already had used other digital wallets, like PayPal and Venmo, previously.

Uber Eats pointed out Apple Pay’s high privacy and security in its announcement, Tech Crunch said. Apple Pay will be available to Uber Eats users in nearly 20 markets, including the United States, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Canada, France, Belgium, Hong Kong, Japan, Spain, and Italy.

Apple Pay’s support has been increasing, but it still doesn’t make much for Apple

Apple Pay has been slowly increasing its support to various vendors. However, Apple (AAPL) still doesn’t make a lot of money from Apple Pay—although its revenue from the service has been surging over the last few years, as the graph below shows. The company doesn’t disclose how much it makes from Apple Pay, which is part of its fast-growing services business.

Apple’s stock gained nearly 2% on Wednesday, April 17. The tech juggernaut now has a market cap of nearly $958 billion. The stock has gained over 30% year-to-date after losing nearly 40% in the final quarter of 2018.
