If you’re reading this, you’ve probably thought about increasing revenue by accepting credit cards. Good news!

More TaxiStartup partners can offer passengers to use their smartphones & credit cards to pay for taxis via PayU service.

PayU payment service

PayU is a payment gateway aggregator that offers electronic payment services to merchants through its partnerships with various banks and payment instrument companies.

Okay, so what does that mean? It means that now companies can offer their clients to pay for the ride with a smartphone via branded passenger apps.

Last year we provided this possibility to passengers in Latin America, today we’re excited to extend the list of countries to Turkey, Hungary, Romania and Russia.

Don’t worry about technical details, our tech team will help you with the setup and configuration.

Let’s dive into how credit card payments will help you drive more income, and acquire more customers from your apps.

  • • The cost is automatically calculated based on the rates you set. Easy. Just what your customers love.
  • • Your drivers won’t lose jobs because of the negative balance. They can send credits from a credit card to their account (driver wallet) in the driver application with a single click!

  • • Funds from credit card payments are deposited directly into your business account.
  • • When you take your business from a cash-only operation to one that accepts credit and debit cards, your potential customer base broadens tremendously.
  • • The various studies show that when people are given more payment options (beyond cash), they are more likely to choose and join your service.
