You can also choose to ‘Make it a Meal’ when you’re viewing the item and your order in the Cart, which will return you to the product display page so you can select the meal size you want.

Q: Can I change my Order?

A: Yes, you can add or remove items from the Cart before you Place your Order and before you Check-in at a participating McDonald’s restaurant. Simply Edit your order in the Cart and make necessary changes.

Q: Can I cancel my Order?

A: There is currently no ‘cancel’ function after you have placed your order; however, your purchase is not officially made and your payment card is not charged until you Check-in at the restaurant where you’re ordering and picking up the food. So, you can empty your Cart at any time before you Check-in at your selected a participating restaurant.

When you Check-in with your preferred pick up method, your order is completed at the participating restaurant you choose and your payment card is charged. Make sure you only Check-in when you are at the restaurant or in the carpark, and make sure your phone’s location services settings are turned on.

Q: Can I send my order to a restaurant now and pick up at a later time?

A: Yes, but your order will not be officially confirmed and prepared at the restaurant until you Check-in at the restaurant. Once you have Checked-in and officially finalised your order via the app, your Order Code will be valid for 2 hours from the time you confirmed it. 

Cashless Mobile Payment

Q: Why was my order total updated?

A: Updated order totals at Check-in can result from unavailability of certain products, changes in price, taxes or other fees required by law due to your arrival at a different participating restaurant than you originally selected or a different time. Many of our restaurants are operated by independent franchisees, so some menu items vary by restaurant and time of day.

Q: What type of payment cards can I register to use with Mobile Ordering?

A: You can register your Visa, Mastercard and Amex. Other forms of cashless payment will be coming soon.

Q: Does McDonald’s charge me to register a payment card to use with Mobile Ordering?

A: No, McDonald’s does not charge for card registration. When you register a payment card to use with mymacca’s Mobile Ordering, McDonald’s third party provider sends an authentication request to your payment card issuer. This request may be reflected as a temporary transaction on your account. For most card brands, this is a temporary $0 transaction; however, use of some payment card brands may reflect a temporary $1 transaction that is subsequently reversed. Each card issuer and payment card brand is different, so please check with your payment card issuer for more information.

Q: Can I register Apple Pay, Android Pay or my mobile wallet to use with mymacca's Mobile Ordering?

A: No, unfortunately you cannot yet register Apple Pay, Android Pay or your mobile wallet for automatic payment of your mobile orders at this time. These and other forms of cashless payment will be coming soon.

Q: How to do I add, remove, and edit payment card information?

A: You can only add or remove payment card information from the My Account and Checkout screens. To add a payment card, simply enter details as prompted on the form and click ‘Save.’ To remove a payment card, visit the payment methods screen in the My Account section and swipe left on the card you want removed. At this time, we do not allow editing of payment card information, so if you’ve made a mistake, you’ll have to delete it and then add it again.

Q: When is my payment card charged?

A: Your payment card will not be charged until you Check-in at the participating restaurant to complete your order and pick up your food. The app displays a ‘processing payment’ message when this is being confirmed.

You will be emailed a receipt of purchase, to the email you provided on your mymacca’s account.

Q: Who charges my payment card when I complete an order?

A: The McDonald’s restaurant that completes your order is the merchant of record.

You will be emailed a receipt of purchase, to the email you provided on your mymacca’s account

Q: What if I have an issue with a payment or want a refund?

A: Please contact your bank if you have any questions about charges reflected on your payment card statement (i.e., errors, duplicate charges, etc.). To dispute a McDonald’s transaction for a duplicate charge on your debit or credit card, you need to follow-up with your bank or credit card provider and they will research and take the appropriate action.

Also, please be sure to view the receipt we emailed you after your purchase.

Q: How do I get a receipt for my order?

A: You will receive an email receipt of your order upon successful completion of your order and transaction. On occasion, you may also receive a printed receipt from the McDonald’s restaurant in addition to the email receipt.

Q: Why is my email receipt different from my order?

A: If you make any changes or modifications to your order in the restaurant, you may receive an updated printed receipt that reflects your changes or modifications.

Q: Are the prices in the Mobile App the same for all restaurant locations?

A: Prices vary by participating restaurants. Many of our restaurants are operated by independent franchisees, so some menu items vary by restaurant and time of day.

Changes in products, pricing, taxes or other fees required by law can result from your Checking-in at a different participating restaurant than you originally selected when you created your mobile order. Changes can also result from the unavailability or outages of certain products, changes in price, or other reasons.
