Go Places with Uber and PayPal
We believe choice is a beautiful thing, especially when it comes to paying for rides. Today, we’re excited to announce that we have expanded our integration with PayPal to 20 countries around the world.
Now riders in 10 new countries – Canada, Greece, Hong Kong, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Sweden & Switzerland – can pay for their trips using PayPal directly from the rider app.
We’ve partnered with PayPal since November 2013, and riders who use PayPal in our first 10 markets – Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, and the United States – have loved the flexibility and choice.

With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
