Here’s how to delete the Credit card on UBER app

Uber has some very strict rules when it comes to using its features and services. It’s primarily to prevent fraudulent usage on the platform. Which is why they have your card on file. If you have added a credit card and that is the primary card, you can’t delete it. So, what else can you do?

  • Open the Uber app and click on the Payment Methods.
  • Add an alternate credit card that you want to add under the tab “Add Card” section.
  • Once done, you can make the new card as your primary card and delete the old card from the app.

I’m afraid this is the only way to do it. You could also choose other payment methods that are available in your country. Uber might have integrated the payment options accordingly.

Or you can pay with cash if you’re concerned. You can also try deleting your app. Once deleted, re-download it and login with another account credentials.

If that is not the primary card and you want to delete any other card, then simply tap on the edit icon on top of it and click on delete. It will be deleted.
