From July 13, Uber will once again allow customers to pay using credit cards in India. In an announcement, Uber confirmed that it will start accepting International and Indian Credit Cards along with PayTm for making ride payments.
Uber offers users with Credit Card payment across the world, but had stopped the same in India after RBI’s stringent 2 Factor Authentication was brought in. Uber now says they have 2 Factor Authentication flow built into the app.
The new feature will be powered by MobiKwik. “We are delighted to partner with Uber and bring India’s best mobile payment experience to Uber users.” said Founder CEO Bipin Preet Singh.
Here’s how you can add your credit card?
Tap the account button in the top left corner
Tap Add Payment
Fill in your credit card information or tap the “scan your card” option
After your trip, you shall see a “Pay Now” button that triggers the 2 Factor Authentication.
Type in your OTP or I-Pin and your receipt shall be sent to your registered email address.
While we now accept credit cards. We continue to accept PayTM Wallet as a mode of payment.
The Uber app will also let you add more than one card, unlike PayTm wallet. The service will accept almost all major credit cards issued by Mastercard, Visa and American Express.
