Uber, Venmo Partner to Offer Payment Service
In a few weeks, Uber and Uber Eats customers will be able to pay for their transactions using the mobile payment app Venmo
More than 6 million payments on Venmo mentioned “Uber” in their description over the past year, making a seamless connection between the two apps a natural fit, the company said.
Uber customers in the United States ordering rides and food will soon be able to pay with their Venmo balance, linked bank account, credit card or debit card so they can easily split the cost with friends and family in the Venmo app, for no additional fee. Users can also share their purchases in their Venmo feed with custom emojis that are exclusive to the partnership, with Uber as the first company to have a branded emoji in the app.
Venmo will be available as a payment method on Uber and Uber Eats apps to US customers in the coming weeks.
