Pay Cash for Your Uber Rides, Now Available

Choice is a beautiful thing and soon many of you will be able to pay for Uber rides using cash. That’s right – all the convenience of Uber, with even more payment options to cover your rides. Simply choose the ‘cash’ option in the payments menu, take a ride and pay your driver directly in cash at the end of the trip.


Why Cash Matters to our riders

We care everyone in the city, whether you are a student, a teenager, a pregnant lady, a working mum, a disabled or a senior citizen, we want to make sure it is easy for you. By introducing this experiment, we discovered four simple ways that cash could make a little bit easier for everyone who needs a safe, reliable ride in Macau.

Removing the fear factor for first time riders

You told us you still have concerns about credit cards, and we listened. We want everyone of you to have the freedom to choose the way they travel, and cash is a truly inclusive way to let everyone move around their city easily.

No credit card? No worries.

Cash opens doors for more Macanese to take their first ride, and have a quality experience on Uber, whether you’re a busy Mum, a student without a credit card or a senior citizen who’s more comfortable with cash.

One more option for you – simple and easy

You can always have a choice. We make it as simple as 1-2-3: Request – take ride – pay with cash.

More riders means more driver dollars

When more riders choose Uber, more driver-partners increase their average hourly earnings – taking more trips and reducing the time our driver-partners spend idle.


This is an experiment and one of the few places in the world where cash payment is available across the 475+ cities where Uber is present. We have worked hard to create a seamless option that is truly Uber. If you do not see the cash option, don’t worry. We will roll out this feature gradually as we continue testing it. 

How To Switch Between Payment Options

  1. Open the Uber app and type your destination
  2. Switch between ‘CASH’ or ‘CREDIT CARD’ as your payment option
  3. Request your ride
  4. At the end of the trip, pay the fare directly in cash to your driver
