A financial technology company, Global Accelerex Ltd, has sealed pact with Moove, Uber’s preferred fleet partner in sub-Saharan Africa, to make payments seamless for riders across Africa.
To address the inconvenience of cash payment on Uber rides and provide comfort to passengers who do not want to enter their card details online, Moove has integrated its payment platform to Global Accelerex’s N3 Android PoS device, an advancement in e-payment technology, a statement from the company said at the weekend.
This will make it convenient for passengers to pay for their Uber rides via the PoS terminals deployed in all Moove cars, the companies said.
Speaking about this strategic alliance, the Executive Director, Business Development and Operations of Global Accelerex, Mr. Kayode Ariyo, stated that it is a union of two market leaders in the technology-driven business space constantly seeking to make life easier for consumers.
“We are thrilled to partner with Moove to offer the revolutionary N3 device for deployment in their cars to make payment simple and safer for passengers. I am particularly glad about the fact that it reduces the restriction on payment options as passengers can now pay with their cards while on the move, and not just at stationary locations,” Mr. Ariyo said.
According to him, Global Accelerex was the first to introduce the first single unit android point of sale terminal to be certified for payment acceptance in Nigeria – the N5.
He said Moove was also the first company in Nigeria to provide fleet services for Uber transportation.
Mr. Ladi Delano, Managing Partner of Grace Lake Partners and Co-founder of Moove, said: “At Moove, our focus is democratizing car ownership for drivers whilst providing the best option for riders to move from point A to point B.”
“We utilize hardware and software to ensure security, safety, comfort and convenience in every vehicle, and the PoS terminals provided by Global Accelerex are in line with this commitment by ensuring that payments are more secure, seamless and convenient than ever before”.
