Customers can claim a refund if their order wasn’t right – if it had missing items, if items were cold or damaged, or if the order was extremely late.
When a refund is given, either you or Deliveroo will cover the cost, depending on what went wrong - see below.
To learn more about the status of your refunds, simply head to the Sales section in Hub to find your refund report.
What you see is determined by your Hub permissions
Staff users can see a ‘Refunds Given’ summary in Hub's Home page
Admins and managers can access the full refund report in Hub's Sales section
Here, you can see the total number of refunded Deliveroo orders over the last week, by day and time of day: a darker colour shows higher refunds, lighter colours mean lower refunds.
Your Hub 'Sales' tab (‘Refunds’) gives you more details about refund requests you've received, including pending ones, refunds given, and rejected refunds.
If you would like to dispute a refund, you can do this by reaching out to our Restaurant Team through 'Help' tab in Hub or via email, using the subject line ‘Customer Refunds’ followed by your business name and the order ID.
Below are just a few examples of why a refund might be requested. For a complete picture of Deliveroo and partner responsibilities, please refer to your partner services agreement with Deliveroo.
How do I see the refunds I’ve given?
Refunded orders will appear on your invoice under ‘Additional fees’ as Refund debit. To find your latest invoice, go to Hub's Invoices section.
We’ll also send you a daily email (arriving at midnight), with the orders that have been refunded that day and the reason why.

Where can I find more details about my refunds?
