Payleven enters into partnership with Berlin taxi association

Payment alternative for taxis

European mobile payments provider Payleven has announced a partnership with German taxi association Taxiverband Berlin (TVB) which allows consumers to use iPhones and iPads as mobile payments terminals anywhere, including in taxis (view press release).

Once the free Payleven app is downloaded consumers can make payments from one euro upwards using the new system that charges solely on transactions.

Detlev Freutel, of TVB’s executive committee said: “The Taxiverband Berlin-Brandenburg is a network with a wide range of taxi-companies who will benefit from a mobile payment solution. That is why we picked Payleven’s innovative approach for a first testing period. We think everyone will profit from it: the taxi companies, Payleven and the customers.”

Traditional solutions for accepting electronic cash payments are mostly expensive, not mobile and not customized to the needs of small businesses. Taxi drivers in particular know these problems. Thus, we are looking forward to the partnership with the TVB and a close and longstanding cooperation,” said Payleven Co-Founder and CMO Konstantin Wolff.
