Mobile Order & Pay FAQs
How do I know if McDonald’s Mobile Order & Pay is available in my area?
Make sure you turn on location services so that we can show you all of the available features in the McDonald’s App. Mobile Order & Pay will appear in the McDonald’s App as a feature when you’re within 5 miles of a McDonald’s restaurant that offers Mobile Order & Pay.
Within the location map, after tapping on a restaurant icon, the white detail box arrow will also indicate if Mobile Order & Pay is available at a particular location. If the restaurant is participating, “Order Here” will appear in black letters at the bottom of the detail page, allowing you to tap it and begin the order. If not, “Order Here” will appear in gray letters, indicating that Mobile Order & Pay is not enabled at that location.
How do I complete and pick up my order?
You can complete and pick up your McDonald’s order at any participating restaurant. When you arrive at a participating McDonald’s restaurant, you need to check in and choose how you want to pick up your order—pick up Curbside, Inside the Restaurant or Drive Thru. These options may vary by restaurant and time of day. When you check in with your preferred pickup method at the restaurant, your mobile order is completed and your registered payment card is charged by the restaurant.
Remember, never use the McDonald’s App while driving! Only check in when you are safely stopped at a McDonald’s restaurant, and make sure your location services settings are turned on. If you have any questions or are unsure of what to do, you can always see a crew member inside the restaurant and give them your mobile order code.
Can I add a McDonald’s deal or promotion to my Mobile Order?
If a Deal is available for redemption through Mobile Order & Pay, you will see an “Add Deal to Mobile Order” button below the code when viewing the Deal in the McDonald’s App. To redeem the Deal, choose the “Add Deal to Mobile Order” button then customize the items in this order. Choose “Add To Order” to add the Deal to your bag. View some of our current deals and promotions.
