With many people opting for contactless payment methods due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a significant increase in demand for cashless payment options when making payments. In light of this, Uber – which is powered by Flutterwave – has recently just announced a new electronic payment option called Uber Cash – also powered by Flutterwave – in a number of African countries.
