Voi partners with Apple Pay and Google Pay

Voi users can now book rides with the new digital payment methods Apple Pay and Google Pay.

These partnerships make it easier for Voi users to pick up an e-scooter, without the need to hassle with filling in bank card details.

Until now, Voi users have had to store means of payment in the app for billing, such as credit card details or PayPal. While these options are still available, Voi has added a wider selection of payment options in the registration process. Existing users are also able to switch or add payment methods in their app settings by clicking the hamburger menu in the bottom left corner, and choosing ‘Wallet’.

“We want our service to be easy to access for anyone, no matter what payment method they prefer,” said Carro Hjelm, head of marketing of Voi Technology. “By making the payment onboarding smoother, we can also free up time for users to diligently go through the introductory safety and parking guidelines in our app.”

Apple Pay and Google Pay will be available across all UK towns and cities in which Voi operates: https://www.voiscooters.com/voi-technology/.
