Amber Cars customers using Android and iOS phones can now make bookings on their credit card. This brings added convenience whilst allowing Amber to transact £5M in the first year.
Card payments are very convenient for customers, they won’t have to worry about having cash on them to pay for the taxi, nor pay waiting fees as they stop at the ATM to get cash out.
Getting started is fast. Customers can enter their card details once, then select to pay by card when booking. Multiple cards can be added, so a customer can choose to pay on their business or personal card.
A simple user experience allows customers to securely add their cards in seconds
The payment is taken at the end of the journey, and an email receipt is sent to the customer.
As usual, the customer can cancel their booking at any time.
It's worth noting that cash payments are still allowed, as many customers still prefer this.
The team anticipate this will be a huge hit with customers. It is estimated customers will pay by card in almost 1 million journeys, generating £5M in credit card payments through the app in 12 months.
Four years on, and we’re seeing just under 50% of users chose to pay by card. This is generating over £20m of mobile app revenue for Veezu.
The app uses a PCI-DSS compliant payment solution to take card details. No card details are stored in the app or on our servers, and all details are transmitted securely.
