How to Cancel an Order in McDonald's App


The McDonald's app is a great way to order your favorite food and get it quickly. You can customize your meal to your liking, but you may also want to change your order in the middle of the process. If this happens, here's how to cancel an order in the McDonald's app:

How to Cancel Your Order in the App

  • Tap on the hamburger menu button at the top-left corner of your screen to access all available menus.

  • Tap on the "My orders" tab to view a list of your recent orders and check out their status, such as whether they've been paid for or not yet picked up by you or another person, etc.

  • Tap on an existing order in this list if you want to cancel it altogether; if you want to modify an existing order instead, simply tap "Edit."

  • When prompted with a confirmation message asking whether you want to cancel this item or edit it, click "Yes." You will be taken back into the main screen where you can now see that item crossed out and no longer listed among those that are left pending (it will also have disappeared from any other lists where it might have appeared).

How to Cancel Your Order at the Drive-Thru

If you're at the drive-thru, you can cancel your order in a few different ways. You can ask the cashier to cancel it for you. To do this, tell them that you'd like to cancel your order and give them your name and order number. If they don't ask for either of these things, say that it's been ordered by mistake and tell them what was ordered. That will make it easier for the cashier to find it quickly so they can cancel your order right away!
