UBER SIGNS ITS FIRST MOBILE WALLET DEAL IN SOUTHEAST ASIA THROUGH A PARTNERSHIP WITH VIETNAMESE MOBILE WALLET MOMO

Uber Technologies Inc. will allow riders in Vietnam to pay for their trips using local mobile wallet MoMo, opening up its service to the millions in the country who don’t have credit or debit cards.

The pact is a first for the world’s most valuable startup in Southeast Asia, Uber said. Backed by Standard Chartered Private Equity and Goldman Sachs, MoMo has five million users who use the mobile wallet to pay utility bills, buy airline tickets and access other services.

Uber’s move comes as local ride-hailing rivals Grab and Go-Jek push aggressively for the adoption of their own in-app digital payments platforms to hook consumers.

The second public hearing is expected to be held in January.

The Thai E-Commerce Association has urged the government to create regulations for fair competition and apply anti-dumping laws to e-commerce businesses to avoid a market dominated by other internet giants. [Read more]
