In one of the largest announcements in recent times, Uber just launched JioMoney payments in India. The new feature addition is live to all the users. As a introductory offer, Uber is offering Rs 100 BookMyShow voucher to new users of JioMoney on Uber.
The voucher is valid only for first time JioMoney payment on Uber cabs.
If you are looking to adding your JioMoney account to your Uber cabs app, launch the cab app and enter the Payments section. The option is available underneath the hamburger menu at the top left. One can choose JioMoney there and confirm the addition.
Once done, users can pay with JioMoney wallet money. The BookMyShow complimentary voucher will be issued on completion of the first ride payment with JioMoney wallet. The offer is valid until March 16 and is a one-time redemption.
The BookMyShow voucher will be issued in 2 days of ride, and will be valid for 2 months since the day of issue.
The JioMoney integration comes during the time when Paytm is the only third-party wallet payments provider on the Uber cabs platform in India. It is interesting to note that the largest rival and India’s leading cab service provider, Ola cabs, has in-house wallet business, Ola Money, integrated for cab payments.
While people have been hinting that Uber might launch in-house wallet business sometime soon, it looks otherwise. Do you think other wallet options like Freecharge, Mobikwik, or Amazon Pay for that matter, be available on Uber cabs soon?
