9 October 2015 – First cashless. Now cardless!
Starting today, passengers, who book a ComfortDelGro taxi can do away with presenting the actual credit or debit card when they choose to pay the taxi fare using MasterPass™, a digital payment service from MasterCard®. This means they can just hop into a cab, disembark when they arrive at their destination without having to whip out their wallets at all – saving both themselves and cabbies a lot of time.
This is how it works: Passengers will have to first register their payment cards via the MasterPass website (https://masterpass.com/). Once a MasterPass wallet is successfully created, they can go to the ComfortDelGro Taxi Booking App, where they select “Connect with MasterPass” to pair up their MasterPass account with the taxi booking app for payment of taxi bookings. Passengers who choose to pay by MasterPass will not need to present the actual debit or credit card to the cabby.
