Paga Partners Uber on Payment in Nigeria
COMMITTED to solving payments for businesses and individuals, Paga has announced a partnership with technology company, Uber. The global company that has revolutionized the way people think about travel, which accepts payments for services via its app is looking to broaden its reach across Nigeria by making its services accessible to all commuters, irrespective of how they choose to pay.
Founded in San Francisco, California in 2009, Uber uses GPS technology to connect customers, also known as riders, to their nearest Uber verified driver-partner via smartphone technology. Once the trip is complete the app automatically debits the riders registered card,. Part of Nigerian transport ecosystem since 2014, Uber has been successfully adopted by thousands of Nigerians looking for the seamless service experience it’s renowned for in over 645 cities in 67 countries across the globe.
In ensuring that the Uber customer experience remains unaffected by local preferences and regulations, the partnership between Paga and Uber gives riders the option to pay with Paga using a local debit card, without worrying about foreign currency exchange rates, or with cash into a Paga account. By simply visiting www.mypaga.com/pay/uber on their mobile devices or downloading the Paga app, riders can still enjoy the convenience of cash free payments without the worry of additional charges.
Speaking on the partnership, Paga Founder and CEO Tayo Oviosu expatiated on Paga’s commitment…
“Our partnership with Uber is directly in line with our commitment to make payments convenient and easy for everyone. Uber riders can now enjoy the convenience of paying for their rides through their Paga accounts or a local debit card without worrying about the foreign exchange rate issues. We are also working on adding the functionality for riders to pay directly from their bank accounts for the ride. At Paga we are indifferent to the funding source of your transaction; we simply want to help you pay in the most convenient way.
