Uber Cars Now Accept Cash in the Philippines
Popular ride sharing app Uber announced on Tuesday, November 3 that it now accepts cash payments in the Philippines. The company hopes the move will open up Uber to a wider rider base in the country, where credit card use is not as widespread. The Philippines is the fifth country in the Uber universe where Uber is accepting cash payments. “Having the option of paying with cash is really important for people in Metro Manila so this is an exciting experiment for us,” Laurence Cua, general manager for Uber Philippines, said in a statement.
