Navigate to your payment dashboard

Be prepared to confirm the following information on your W-9 form:

  • Name of the business entity that owns your store
  • Type of business entity
  • Business address as per tax filing
  • Tax ID, either SSN or EIN

3. Complete your W-9 form

Single Location: Complete your W-9 form

Click “complete W-9 form” to access the form via DropboxSign. In the pop up window, check that your pre-filled information is correct. Make sure that all areas marked with red asterisks are completed.

How to upload our W-9

Click to sign. Your W-9 form will automatically submit when you click “save.”

Multiple Locations: Complete your W-9 form

Click on “Complete Missing Tax Form” on the top of the page. This will pull up all your businesses that have missing W-9s and allow you to apply the same W-9 to multiple locations easily.

You can use the same W-9 across multiple locations as long as they are owned by the same company. If you already have a W-9 on file, you can apply that to a new location. Please note that you must complete your W-9 before setting up direct deposit.


Click “complete missing tax form” to assign a W-9 for each location.


Are you using an existing W-9?

Navigate to “Assign existing W-9” and select which locations you want the W-9 you already uploaded to apply to. Only business locations that still need a W-9 will appear in the dropdown menu. The window will prompt you to attach a W-9 for each location. Once you have completed your selections, click “submit.”


Are you uploading a new W-9?

If you are adding a new W-9, select the “add new W-9” tab. Click on the locations you want to attach to the new W-9 and select “submit.” You then can upload additional W-9s following the same process above.

4. Confirm W-9 submission

Once all locations have a W-9 attached, you will see the sidebar disappear and the location status change to W-9 Completed in the table for that location. If you still have locations without W-9s you will be redirected to step to a window to continue adding W-9s until all of your locations are complete.


5. Set up direct deposit

Click the “Set up direct deposit” button to open up the direct deposit form.


6. Choose how to get paid

You can choose how frequently you want to be paid. Use the drop down menu to select frequency. 

If you have multiple locations on Grubhub, you can select if you want to be paid in a lump sum or individually. A lump sum payment will combine all the deposits across your selected locations into a single deposit. For example, if you have 5 stores, then you will get a single deposit that includes the revenue from all 5 stores into a single deposit. Individual payment will make one deposit per each store.


Click “connect your bank” to submit the form and securely connect to Plaid, our banking partner.

7. Connect your bank

In a pop up window, Plaid will ask you to select your institution. Log into your bank account using your bank user ID and password. After logging in, you will be asked to share your data with Plaid. Select “share my data” to connect your bank. Select the account you would like to share with Grubhub to have deposited to.

8. Submit your info

Click “Submit” after your banking information is entered. You will see a confirmation screen if it’s successful. 

You may see a pop up window after submitting your information notifying you that your bank does  not support instant matches with our direct deposit. This means that it will take 1-2 business days to confirm your bank information. Please come back after 1-2 business days to confirm if your direct deposit has been successfully set up.
