Grubhub just announced a new Venmo integration, which means you can now use Venmo as payment within the app. It also means you can split your order with whoever you're sharing a meal with. No more awkward conversations about who owes who what. High five, Grubhub!

To use the new feature, you need to have accounts with both Grubhub and Venmo. You'll need to link the accounts, but only the first time you use them together. When you get to the checkout page, you'll see Venmo as a payment option.The Venmo app will open automatically, and once you've split the bill or requested money, you'll be redirected back to Grubhub.
Of course, if you and your friends have both apps, all of this can be done by simply using both apps separately. But this new integration saves the extra step of opening two apps, which ultimately makes life a little easier. Plus, you can avoid people stiffing you once they're full or just forgetting to pay you altogether.
The Venmo integration is also available on Grubhub owned apps Seamless and Eat24. So, basically you never need to carry around cash ever again—at least not for food delivery.
