Uber runs Visa payments promotion in Kenya

Tuesday 3 October 2017 | 15:21 CET | News
Taxi-hailing service Uber has announced an agreement with Visa under which Visa will work with its financial institution partners to set up debit and credit portfolios for eCommerce. The Uber/Visa partnership will give passengers flexibility to pay in the way they are most comfortable, while getting free lifts when they use their Visa card. This will enable faster adoption of digital payments, new revenue streams for banks and merchants, and create the platform for market leading digital companies like Uber to offer app-based payment facilities to customers.
