FreeCharge and UrbanClap team up to offer cashless payments across 97 service categories listed on the mobile services marketplace. The partnership will be in effect across Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
Once customers book a service on UrbanClap they will receive the option of making payments in cash or online after the completion of service. All the customer has to do is select the online payment option and make the payment to UrbanClap once the service is completed.
Commenting on the partnership, Sudeep Tandon, Chief Business Officer, FreeCharge said, “The services landscape in the country is pre-dominantly unstructured and thus relies heavily on cash payments. UrbanClap is doing great in bringing about structure to the sector and provides a massive opportunity for cashless transactions with these services and their payments going online. We envision this partnership playing a key role in moving towards a less cash society and hope it achieves the purpose.”
Adding to that, Varun Khaitan, Co-Founder, UrbanClap said “With the advent of demonetisation, digitisation of payments has been greatly embraced across the country. This makes payments not just easier, but safer too. At UrbanClap a bulk of our payments have moved online. We are excited to partner with FreeCharge towards this as they are leaders in the online wallet space having built a strong product and trust over the last few years”
