Gett UK choose SafeCharge to optimise payments flow

After years of little innovation taking place, the driver payments experience is stepping into the future. Now, ride sharing app Gett UK has announced it’s collaboration with paytech company SafeCharge, meaning improved payments in the works for both consumer and company alike.

The collaboration primarily targets the problems caused by passengers having insufficient funds on their cards to pay for rides. SafeCharge will improve Gett UK’s transaction approval rates and ensure maximum recovery for failed transactions, when technical glitches have occurred or if there are insufficient funds on a customer’s card.

They will also enable smart logic such as Partial Approvals to collect the maximum amount of funds available on a user’s card if the total amount cannot be collected upfront.

“In London alone, almost half of all black cabs now run on Gett,”, Guy Douek, Global Head of Payments, Gett, told PaymentEye.

“When it came to selecting a new payments provider, we were looking for a strategic partner with the same commitment to delivering the best possible services to its customers. SafeCharge, with its flexible and open philosophy, data-driven approach and advanced technical capabilities was the perfect fit.”

“We are very happy to be partnering with an innovator such as Gett in the UK, and excited that we are continuing to add customers in new markets and regions around the world,” David Avgi, CEO, Safecharge, also told PaymentEye.

“It is clear our robust, flexible and open payments technology is a popular fit for merchants in different industry sectors looking to take back control of their payments infrastructure.”
