Mobile on-demand ride-hailing app, LEFA has joined forces with PayToday, a mobile payment solutions provider. The partnership, which was announced on Tuesday, 3 September 2019, aims to give LEFA users the option to use the PayToday mobile app to pay for their safe and secure ride.
LEFA has been connecting users to shuttle and cab drivers in and around Windhoek, Namibia, through their mobile app system since February 2018. And using the PayToday mobile payment app, LEFA drivers can now be paid directly from a smartphone.
According to the companies, this partnership makes not having cash a non-issue. Users can request a ride, pay for a ride by simply downloading the LEFA and the PayToday apps.
“Using LEFA as a safe and convenient way of getting to your destination has taken off, with more than 2000 people per month using the service and growing,” says Melkies Ausiku, Founder and Managing Director of LEFA. “By partnering with PayToday we can offer an even better and more customer-friendly technology/mobile phone driven transport experience. Cashless payments are the future across the world and with PayToday as a partner we can now offer it right here in Namibia. Something that we are very proud of.”
“We are excited to partner with fellow local entrepreneur Melkies who shares our passion for technology and innovation. As a pioneer in the mobile payment space in Namibia, this partnership is fully aligned with our vision of making payments easier in every situation,” says Chris Botha of PayToday Namibia.
The LEFA and PayToday mobile app are available for download from Google Play or the App Store.
