Go-Jek riders in Singapore can pay for their rides via DBS PayLah!, following the partnership expansion of the payment service in Singapore with Go-Jek, according to a press statement.
DBS PayLah! feature has been made available in the app for both iOS and Android users in Singapore. The customers can add DBS PayLah! as a preferred payment method for their rides after standard authorising and setting up in the app.
Go-Jek shared that only 35 per cent of its daily ride-hailing transactions are paid for in cash, which brings the opportunity to explore other means of payment especially for those who might not own any debit or credit card.
“Through integrating DBS PayLah! in the Go-Jek app, riders will have the flexibility to choose their preferred payment methods. This is the latest benefit that we are bringing to our users in partnership with DBS,” said General Manager of Go-Jek Singapore, Lien Choong Luen.
Vice versa, the companies said, Go-Jek will be integrated within the DBS PayLah! app over the next few months.
With digital payment integration, Go-Jek’s driver-partners can also make unlimited real-time withdrawals of their earnings from their Go-Jek’s wallets. Payouts are deposited directly into their bank accounts through API-based DBS IDEAL RAPID.
In addition to Singapore, this partnership can be explored further with the possibility of rolling out new services such as cross-marketing initiative in Indonesia in the future.
“Following the success of DBS and Go-Jek’s partnership in Singapore, we have also entered the next phase of our partnership in Indonesia considering it to be our key growth country,” said Shee Tse Koon, Singapore country head at DBS.
Ride-hailing company Go-Jek is originally founded in Indonesia, while DBS currently has more than 460,000 digibank customers in the country.
