Uber Africa launches Uber Cash with Flutterwave and explores EVs

By Brian Heater

Uber  is launching its Uber Cash digital wallet feature in Sub-Saharan Africa through a partnership with San Francisco-based — Nigerian-founded — fintech firm Flutterwave.

The arrangement will allow riders to top up Uber wallets using the dozens of remittance partners active on Flutterwave’s Pan-African network.

Flutterwave  operates as a B2B payments gateway network that allows clients to tap its APIs and customize payments applications.
