Regarding the plans to expand the application, Jose Maria Volio, manager of Uber Eats for Central America, said to Elmundo.sv that "... each month they will reach more territories, because the goal is that by 2019 they can offer their service in the countryside of El Salvador."

The article details that "... Now, Uber Eats will only accept credit card payments, but expects to add more options for consumers soon. In addition, in the rest of November and during December, the shipping cost will be free, and they will start charging $2.50 starting January 2019."
