Ride hailing major Uber on Monday said its Uber Eats' engineering team in Hyderabad is leading innovations in the key global markets of Japan and Belgium to ensure integration of payment wallets into the app.
The first wallet to be added as a payment option in Japan was LINE Pay, which was soon followed by the integration of PayPay - now the largest wallet in Japan by volume of payments, a statement said.
The integration also allows eaters in Japan to place orders through Uber Eats directly from the PayPay app, making it the first time Uber Eats has been positioned as a mini app within another app. The team also gave eaters in Belgium the option of paying for their orders through Bancontact, the country's leading payment method and the market leader for electronic payments, the statement said.
Uber Eats' engineering team works on a global mandate, with key markets being served by the team including the US, Canada, Belgium, and Japan. * * * * MeMe Live clocks over 11 mn downloads Live streaming app MeMe Live on Monday said its userbase has crossed 11 million as of November 2020.
