New payment options make Uber available to 600 million Indians

Today, we’re excited to announce that you can now pay for Uber rides with your debit card, net banking or credit card. Choice is a beautiful thing. The variety of payment options now available in India ensure that you’ll always have both the ride, and the payment option you prefer.

Once you link your debit card or bank account via a Paytm wallet to your Uber account, you’ll easily be able to top up your wallet using multiple payment options.

Convenient payment options are important to people everywhere. We hope these new choices will enable the lone woman traveler to get around safely, or the college student on a budget to get around cheaper with the fare split option.

With these new payment choices available immediately to riders across India, we’re making the same Uber convenience and reliability you’ve come to know and love accessible to over 600 million Indians.
