The ride-sharing company Uber Technologies Inc is making it easier for its customers to pay for rides by offering a new partnership with the mobile payment app Venmo.
Customers of UberEats, Uber’s food-delivery arm, can also pay for their deliveries with Venmo.
“With so many of our riders and eaters already turning to Venmo as a way to pay a friend back for that last ride or meal, we’re proud to have built a seamless, easy-to-use connection between our apps,” Marco Mahrus, Uber’s head of payment partnerships, said in a statement.
Adding Venmo to its suite of payment methods will pave the way for Uber riders to split fares as well as that service will be free with Venmo.
The ride-sharing behemoth is the biggest retailer to agree to take Venmo payments thus far.
Venmo has been a popular tool for people who are looking to transfer cash amongst themselves and more than 2mln merchants currently accept it, according to published reports.
