Paying Taxi Fare Will Be A Seamless Process With PayBy

Paying taxi fare will be a seamless process with this payment method. When you arrive at your destination, request to pay the fare using PayBy. A QR code is displayed on the taxi’s meter screen which you can scan with the PayBy app on your phone. The transaction is confirmed when you enter the password or use face recognition on your smartphone. Both the driver and passenger receive a notification once the transaction is successfully completed.

PayBy Allows Users To Add Their Credit Cards To The Application To Pay

Credit card and debit card users can add their cards to their PayBy account and authorise the transaction when paying taxi fares. What’s more, even those who do not have cards can top up their PayBy wallets on kiosks and pay through the app, thus completing a cashless, contactless and safe transaction. The app also offers limited-time payment vouchers to users which customers can also use to pay their fare. Additionally, drivers will receive payment success incentives to promote the new cashless method.
