Starting from the end of next week, Ola cab users in Bengaluru will be able to make UPI payments to the driver directly through the ride-hailing app. Customers can also pay for the rides to the drivers by scanning the QR code shown by the driver on the dedicated driver app. The feature will go live for Ola cab users across the country by the end of December 2023, claimed Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal in his social media post.

Ola has been incorporating various features into its app in order to offer different services and facilities to users. Just a few days ago, the company collaborated with ONDC. The collaboration between the two companies swung into action in September 2023, to provide food delivery services via its own app.

Through this collaboration, ONDC will see Ola utilising its cab drivers as last-mile delivery agents across different categories such as medicines, apparel, groceries etc as well. Under this partnership, the two companies are mulling the idea of expanding from logistics to providing mobility services through ONDC as well.

While expanding its business to different dimensions in the ride-hailing sector through the Ola app, the company offers the customers to purchase Ola electric scooters through the app. The customers can book their preferred Ola electric scooter through the app and make payments for that.
