Uber tests new payment option in the UAE

DUBAI, August 18, 2016

Ride-hailing service Uber is testing out a new cash payment option for rides in the UAE.

The pilot in Dubai and Abu Dhabi makes the UAE the seventh country to test cash payments, following the launches of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Qatar.

According to a statement released by Uber, the car ride company is exploring ways of making the service even more accessible and convenient. Under the testing phase, the cash option will only be available to a limited number of riders.

"If you do not see the cash option, don’t worry. We will roll out this feature gradually as we continue testing it. Meanwhile if you are part of the cash pilot in the UAE, your feedback is essential so we can continue developing a cash option that works best for you," the company said.

The cash payment option will not replace the credit card option, said the firm and drivers will not allow fare payments to be split between cash and credit card. - TradeArabia News Service
