Uber India adds Credit Card and Debit Card Option back to payment

Uber India adds Credit Card and Debit Card Option back to payment
Debit/ Credit Card Payment option
Uber India is experimenting with all different type of payment options. They started with credit card payment option which was revoked by RBI as they were not following two factor authentication or pin based authentication for payment. Actually Uber was using a loophole in payment system, where pin or other authentication was not needed for foreign payments.

[Updated] Debit Card Payment

Uber app not accepts Debit card payment as well. Add you card and pay same as credit card. See below gif to understand payment option  better.

Paytm Wallet

Then Uber India came with online wallet option with Paytm wallet which became quite successful and paytm gained a lot of new customers, and uber lost of enough money in fake account and real free rides worth Rs 600/- each initially. People used th fake account till the uber didn't stop banning their account.

Cash Payment

Then Uber came with Cash payment system in Hyderabad, soon it will be rolled to other cities if successfull in Hyderabad. Cash system is costing uber in revenue in trip cancellation. They have no way to charge customer if customer refuses to take ride even after given 5 min grace priod of cancellation.

Credit Card Payment

Now Uber is again here with Credit Card payment with two factor authentication like all other merchant sites have. This time is as safe to use credit card with Uber as any other website for e-commerce or any payment system in india.
