For those of you who are already enjoying a faster and simpler way of paying at stores with Android Pay, we’re excited to extend this to your rides by being Singapore’s first transport service enabled for in-app Android Pay payments. From today, you can use Android Pay for all your GrabCar and GrabTaxi rides in Singapore.
Customers with Android mobile devices running KitKat 4.4 or higher can add Android Pay to GrabPay for cashless payments and alight from your Grab rides without the hassle of searching for cash or waiting for your change.
A notification with the payment amount will be sent to your mobile phone after each ride you make on Android Pay.
We accept your choice of payment. Grab takes cash payments and GrabPay now offers three different ways to make cashless payments — you can add a credit or debit card directly, or select AliPay or Android Pay. Android Pay supports MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards from many of Singapore’s financial institutions.
To ensure a stress-free and seamless ride for all our passengers, Grab works with the industry’s best payment leaders to provide the highest security standards for all our GrabPay cashless payments.
For added security, Android Pay creates a unique virtual account number for your transactions so your personal details and 16-digit credit card number are never shown on the app, never stored on your phone, and never shared with the merchant.
