- Partnership will see 15,000 cabby-ambassadors reach out to their favourite hawkers to encourage them to sign up as NETS merchant
- Works in tandem with consumer campaign to build cashless ecosystem at hawker centres
Singapore, 1 February 2018 — NETS and ComfortDelGro Taxi are partnering to drive digital payments adoption at hawker centres across the island with a new incentive programme that rewards ComfortDelGro cabbies for every new hawker that they sign up.
The ‘Hawker Champion’ incentive programme supports Singapore’s Smart Nation vision and works in tandem with NETS’ existing ‘Go Cashless’ consumer campaign in building a cashless ecosystem at hawker centres. Under the programme, ComfortDelGro cabbies will introduce the NETS QR code payment solution to hawkers unfamiliar with the system. Interested hawkers will be referred to NETS and cabbies will be rewarded for every hawker that signs up for NETS services.
As part of this partnership and to encourage the use of cashless payment options at hawker centres, ComfortDelGro cabbies and staff will receive a $10 NETS FlashPay card (NETS FlashPay card valued at $5 and usage value of $5) when they download the NETSPay app.
