How do I know which restaurants are participating in Mobile Ordering?
If you turn on location services, 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 selecting a restaurant icon, selecting the white detail box 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 select it and begin the order. If not, "Order Here" will appear muted out, 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 listed in the app. When you arrive at the McDonald's restaurant you selected, follow the instructions in the app specific to your chosen pickup method: Curbside, Front Counter, Table Service, or Drive-Thru. These options may vary by restaurant and time of day. When you place your order in the app, your order is completed and the restaurant charges your registered payment card. Remember, never use the McDonald's app while driving! Order in the app safely and come to the selected McDonald's restaurant. Once you arrive, enter your Curbside spot or table number in the app. If you're picking up at front counter, simply head to the counter and if picking up at the Drive Thru, you’ll receive a code to provide when you arrive at your selected McDonald’s.
Can I add a McDonald’s deal or promotion to my McDonald’s Mobile Order?
If a Deal is available for redemption through Mobile Order & Pay, there is 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. Explore some of our deals and promotions.
How do I redeem points for free McDonald’s?
You can redeem with contactless ordering in the McDonald’s app by selecting Rewards, choosing the favorite you want to redeem and choosing “Add to Mobile Order”.
Can I redeem a reward and earn points in the same order?
Yes! You earn points on every eligible purchase, so if you’re redeeming a reward and ordering more food in addition to that, you will still earn 100 points for every dollar you spend on eligible products.
What happens if I never check in or pick up my order?
There are no cancellations on orders in the app, so you’ll still be charged even if it’s not picked up. Payment is accepted at checkout before you get to the restaurant. To get assistance for a refund, please contact the restaurant where you purchased your order. You can find their phone number using the Restaurant Locator on our website.

What should I do if I suspect fraudulent activity on my account?
If you believe incorrect or unauthorized charges appear on your account, you should immediately contact your bank. You should also immediately update your password. Security experts recommend that individuals use good password complexity and different user name and password combinations for each account.
What if I was charged for a product that is not available?
The McDonald’s app will label products that are currently unavailable for specific locations to prevent you from ordering those products. If you attempt to reorder an item that contains multiple products, where one or more of the products is unavailable, you will need to remove the unavailable product(s) before your order can be completed.
What forms of payment are accepted?
You can register Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards in the app. Payment cards registered must be issued by a U.S. bank. If you have an iOS device, and your card is registered to your Apple Wallet, Apple Pay will automatically display as a payment option within the McDonald’s app. If you have registered a card to the Google Pay™ app on your Android, you can select Google Pay™ as a payment method in the McDonald’s app. Payments with PayPal and Venmo are also available with Mobile Order & Pay.
