This is a bit of a disaster.
I assume Cab:app aren't being similarly sanctioned by Visa?
Fast Pay is Going - but 'Pay-with-Hailo' is coming shortly - and Chip and Pin
Due to legal action from VISA and other credit card companies, we unfortunately have to retire the fast-pay feature of the app at the end of August. Fast Pay will continue to work on the brand new driver app until the 27th of August.
VISA have deemed these street-card transactions as high-risk and are no longer willing to offer a processing service using this method.
We understand this was a hugely useful feature for many drivers - so we are delighted to announce a brand new innovative feature that we call 'Pay-with-Hailo'. We will be sending more information about Pay-with-Hailo next week but in summary:
Pay-with-Hailo will allow customers who wish to pay for a journey on their card to 'check-in' to a Hailo taxi and pay using the card on their Hailo account. This will be extremely useful for regular customers and new customers alike.
Drivers will pay zero commission on 'Pay-with-Hailo' jobs.
In addition to this, Hailo has secured a highly competitive rate for our drivers for chip-and-pin devices. We'll announce more details shortly on this but if you are interested in purchasing one - please register your interest here.
