Uber cash payments could soon be accepted in more global cities
Uber cash payments could be rolled out in more countries, as the ride-hailing app recognises people are still carrying and paying with cash.
It’s one of the key players in edging us towards a cashless society – but Uber cash payments could soon be available in more cities across the world.
The ride-hailing app, whose business model has always been to offer quick and cashless payments, already offers the service in 51 countries.
Now, the Uber cash payments system could be made available in more locations, one of its employees said during a talk at the Women of Silicon Roundabout conference in London last week.
Uber’s product designer Femke van Schoonhoven said: “We’ve launched ‘cash’ in 51 countries all over the world and we are continuing to grow into new markets.
“We’re so excited about the potential of cash coming to the UK and what is has to offer, not just for us as a business at Uber, but also for our drivers and riders, as well as for earnings and potentials.”
A spokesman for the company said there were no plans for it to be rolled out in the UK any time soon though, with the feature launched in Manchester two years ago but halted in May.
But Ms Schoonhoven was keen to highlight how Uber cash payments have helped the business and improve mobility in other locations to date.
