If you're a DBS PayLah! user, you can now make instant QR code payments in over 16,000 ComfortDelGro taxis here.
Following the trend of other contactless payment methods like Apple Pay and Android Pay, the use of DBS PayLah! to pay for your taxi fare is instant and does not require the use of credit/debit cards.
Customers simply need to scan the QR code on the taxi's cashless payment terminal and the app will automatically process the payment. It's not just DBS that has rolled out cashless payment on cabs. Passengers on Comfort Delgro taxis can also use the OCBC Pay Anyone app to pay for their fares using QR code payments.
Watch the entire process in the video below:
Jeremy Soo, head of consumer banking group (Singapore), DBS Bank, said, "We are delighted to be providing commuters a simple and fast way to go cashless with ComfortDelGro Taxi."
With this development, DBS/POSB is on track to have 60,000 QR code payment acceptance points available to customers by the end of the year - by far the largest in Singapore.
To commemorate the occasion, the first 60,000 customers who use DBS PayLah! to pay for their ComfortDelGro taxi ride will enjoy up to $15 cashback from Aug 10 onwards.
Administrative charges for payment of ComfortDelGro taxi rides via DBS PayLah! will also be waived till the end of the year.
