NETS and ComfortDelGro Taxi have launched NETS’ new in-app payment method for taxi bookings and street hail trips made through the ComfortDelGro Taxi Booking App.
Dubbed NETS Click, the initiative enables consumers to use their NETS bank cards from DBS, OCBC and UOB to conveniently pay for both mobile booking and street hail trips with ComfortDelGro taxis via the ComfortDelGro Taxi Booking App.
The partnership with ComfortDelGro Taxi marks the first time consumers can store NETS payment details on file to use their NETS bank card as an in-app payment mode.
NETS will soon partner with online merchants to integrate NETS Click into their in-app payment process, providing consumers another option when they make payments for their purchases on their mobile devices.
To use NETS Click for ComfortDelGro taxi rides, passengers can add their NETS bank card to the ComfortDelGro Taxi Booking App and authenticate their identity with a one-time password sent to their registered mobile number. Subsequently, NETS can be selected as the in-app payment option for ride bookings made via the app or street hail.
For street hail trips, passengers would need to select the ‘Pay for Street Hail’ option on the ComfortDelGro Taxi Booking App. When they have boarded the hailed taxi, they may select NETS Click as the payment method on the app.
“We are currently partnering with online merchants to integrate NETS Click into their in-app payment process. In time to come, consumers will be able to choose NETS Click and enjoy added convenience when they shop on their mobile devices,” said Jeffrey Goh, group CEO of NETS.
Ang Wei Neng, CEO of ComfortDelGro Taxi, said that with NETS Click, their cabbies and passengers do not need to key in the pin number, saving them time and effort.
“In addition, when you choose to pay ComfortRIDE with NETS Click, there is no admin fee too,” said Ang.
