Taxi-booking service, ingogo has just released a new payment system that will revolutionise taxi payments.
The system is a credit and debit card swiping facility that enables drivers to swipe any card for any job, including hailed jobs not booked through the ingogo app.
There is no minimum or maximum spending requirement; no monthly fees and taxi drivers receive 5% of the credit card fee (except EFTPOS). Drivers can choose to be paid securely to a “name free” credit card and withdraw funds for free at any St George or Westpac ATM.
During the recent trial in Sydney with 15 drivers, several hundred payments were successfully paid for using ingogo’s new payment system proving the viability of the offering.
ingogo is now providing its 1,000 Sydney-based taxi drivers with ingogo credit card readers.
Benefits to drivers include extra jobs, higher commissions and the convenience of a VISA debit card. There are no operating costs associated with using the ingogo booking and payment services.
ingogo plans to enter the Victorian market within the next two months, followed by further expansion nationwide.
ingogo is a client of ATP Innovations, Australia’s leading technology business incubator, also named best internationally connecting incubator.
