New Delhi, July 28: Online e-commerce platform, Snapdeal has tied up with ride-hailing service Uber Inc. that will enable the users to book and hail the cab through its application on their smart phones.
Tony Navin, the senior vice president of Snapdeal, told in a statement, “"Our unique partnership with Uber, a global leader in smart mobility, is an important step in that direction. We are confident that this integration will further provide an exemplary experience to our customers."
“In August 2014, we opened our API to developers globally and since then we’ve seen the creative ideas that app developers have come up with in order to make it easier for people to move around in cities. This partnership with Snapdeal is the first completely native Uber API integration in India and we are excited about this, as we share the same sentiment of building an ecosystem where we work together with other technology companies in order to give customers a hassle-free, end-to-end experience,” said Mahesh Bhalla, head of business at Uber India, in a statement.
After this tie up, there arises no need to download Uber app separately to book the cab. As of now, the payments of the Uber rides are restricted to Cash only payments. Meanwhile, company has been working on fulfilling the aim since long time to expand its business. Keeping this as the vision, Snapdeal recently launched services which allow users to book flights, order food, and even pays bills directly from the Snapdeal app.
