Olacabs has announced the launch of their in-app wallet feature enabling cash free rides for customers and a seamless payment experience. The new wallet will allow customers to recharge their account through a credit / debit card or their online banking account right from the app. The available balance will automatically deducted from the customer’s wallet against the final fare after ride completion and a receipt is e-mailed, making it a fully cashless experience. The wallet will not only allow users to ride cashless, but also help them gift a ride or pre-pay for their loved ones! The Ola app currently has over 25,000 cars available across 15 cities.
To remove the hassle of paying in cash at the end of a ride, the mobile wallet from Ola will enable users to recharge their account for a sum anywhere between INR 100 – 5000.
As per the company, over 70% of Ola’s bookings come through the app today.
Harsha Kumar, Head of Products at Ola said, “Providing customers a seamless travel experience has always been our priority. We are very excited about the possibilities that our mobile wallet offers and firmly believe that our customers will love this cash-free experience. We have added a host of additional and unique features in the latest app. These features, along with offering a great travel experience, will also make traveling within the city more convenient and secure for every one!”
Along with the wallet, the app has also added a number of other new features and has a completely new design and interface. Here are some of the newly added features:
