    Have you tried hitting your phone with a hammer?????

    sorry....j/k

    In all seriousness, be sure you're entering the CC info with no space or "-" or anything else.
    Make sure you're entering the expiration date and CVV code correctly
    be sure to use a regular credit or debit card, not a pre-loaded debit or "gift" card.

    Finally, have you reached out to support@uber.com?
    If/when you do, be sure to NOT include your CC number in the email, but you might include what kind of card it is (Visa/MC/AMEX, etc.)

    This is one of those times that it's really unfortunate that Uber does not have customer service via phone. Their outsourcing of CS to Manilla doesn't help, although it is usually easier to understand what a foreign CS rep types than what they say.

    Thanks for your suggestions, considering the hammer option now. All the Visa and Amex numbers have been entered several times, both in the App and online via web site profile

    I sent an email but no response as of yet

    Open for business, but no one is home at Uber

    Another thing you might try is to log onto the rider app (using your ID/PW) using someone else's phone/app that works for that other person, then try entering your CC info via that phone. If things still don't work, there may be an issue of some sort with your account in general, or your CC's. When you load a CC, Uber pings the account to make sure it's valid. The CC info is stored with your profile in Uber's system and not stored on the device (unless the device has some software that captures and stores any CC info in any app).

    One other thought (amazing what I can think of after driving 6 hours before going to bed on a Friday)
    Be sure you are entering any "0" in your card number, exp. date or CVV as a zero and not a "O" (letter O)
    $.O2..... wait that's not right
    $.02 ... that's better

    another thought is to create/update your rider account via a computer (mac/windows/linux). a tablet might work correctly if you go to their website and not try to go through the rider app for your device.

    Error message while requesting a ride on Uber application, android phone version 6 :

    "Error There was an error processing your request. If it continues, please visite help.uber.com"


    I had to uninstall and reinstall Uber application. Only this resolved the issue. (Also I created a Paypal account and used it instead of my credit card.)


    From help.uber.com, contact us, I received following message:


    "We are working to fix this as quickly as we can, so please keep checking."


    Now it works again, (what a pain. I used taxis all morning instead of Uber, since it was not working).

    As I told you do the following:


    I had to uninstall and reinstall Uber application. Only this resolved the issue. (Also I created a Paypal account and used it instead of my credit card.)


    This should solve the issue, if it does not say so. But after trying!

    Same error here. I uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck. Very inconvenient when you are standing on the curb with the whole family in Paris and need a ride to the train station. We nearly missed our train.

    Using Google Pixel.

    Why can't the app at least say ”re-enter payment info?" Or something less generic?

    Agree. Try new credit card. Or try calling your cc company. Can delete payment method and reenter. That should do a new auth..

    Uber started to block my account after I added Apple Pay

    Since July 11 Uber stopped accepting Apple pay in Canada. I created account while in Canada and could not request a ride in Canada. However when I fully reset my iPhone, set up as new and instal older Uber app 3.248.4 I could order a ride in States.



    Current issue with Uber that it stopped accepting Apple pay without any notification or public approval.



    my friends who also never had an Uber, registered their new accounts. With credit card they could request a ride, however after adding Apple pay something happens and they were unable to take any rides, even with previously working payment method.



    Uber told me that my bank declined Apple pay transaction. And it wasnt true at all.

    all my 5 banks told me that Uber has sent no preathorisation request at all.



    Once apple pay declined account is useless and other payment methods that worked before are also declined.



    I think Apple should be informed about practice that uber started to implement by rejecting Apple pay.



    My sister used Apple pay for uber in Canada since early 2016 and it was all working. However now she also cant take any ride. Uber support stated that everything is good with her account.



    PS: as a conclusion Apple Pay still working fine with all other apps except uber.
