Uber is making its own magazine — for riders, this time.
For Now : Uber is starting this initiative from New York city but if everything goes well it may extend to other cities as well just like uberICECREAM , only this promotion was spread across world.

From one experiment to another experiment, Uber is trying all options to leverage its existing large driver partners network. This time via magazine to reach customers more and utilizing their backseat time. Uber recently launched Merchant partnership program and possible retailer tie-up to deliver goods and another possible partnership with upcoming delivery based startups in town.

The on-demand ride-hailing giant UBER is filling backseat pockets of its vehicles this week with the first edition of Arriving Now, a new magazine produced by the company. It’s similar to how airlines (in India Spicejet used to give one magazine named 'Enroute') produce their own in-flight magazines for flyers.

Uber said today that the first issue is in celebration of New York City’s Fashion Week.

“Arriving Now’s first edition is packed with UBER pro tips, hotspots, and exclusive details about upcoming promotions,” Uber noted. “You may also recognize cover girl Olivia Palermo, one of NYC’s more influential fashionistas, who dishes on her favorite shops, trends, and love of New York inside Arriving Now.”
Uber added that customers can take the magazines home, if they’d like.
One interesting phrase Uber uses is “exclusive details about upcoming promotions.” It will be interesting to see how Uber uses its content publishing arm to promote its own products, sell advertising, or do something that creates extra revenue. It could be similar to how some taxis put small TVs in the back of their vehicles that passengers can often interact with.

The company rolled out a quarterly publication for its drivers back in March called Momentum, which had articles about how to stay healthy and in shape, a spotlight on new Uber city Austin, and pro tips from a long-time Uber driver. Issue 2 rolled out in July.

Uber Content Arm future Plans

Though most people probably spend their time on a phone in the back of an Uber regardless, seat-back, always-on touch screens could probably be coming soon enough to a car near you, allowing users more ways to interact with Uber’s continually growing on-demand services that don’t necessarily involve getting people from place-to-place.

Ubering back from work? Well this screen of Uber already knows where you’re headed, so it could offer a seamless way for you to get takeout from Uber Eats(nearby good restaurents) headed your way to meet you at home.

As Uber’s range of services grow, having a captive audience in the backseat that the company already knows a decent amount about will likely give them quality information to target their new services and ads.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Update: Banned account is a pain, I have many friends who got locked out form Uber due to suspicious activity, some got their account enabled again after some conversation with Uber support and mostly are banned for life. Here is one scenario when you account may get banned. Read this story till end to get the idea.

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
