Jobs – as we build up our PR campaign and promote to passengers you will start to see jobs appear. The ‘boxing bell’ lets you know there’s a Hail Now nearby. For Pre-bookings tap on the icon to see all pre-book jobs.
Driver Ownership – cab:app has created a trade owned app and we already have 3,870 drivers who’ve earned free cashback, which can be redeemed for cash or converted to shares in cab:app. In early December we will launch our ‘cabbie crowdfunding’ to enable drivers and the taxi trade to own more of cab:app as we continue to invest in technology and PR to expand.
Charity Partners – in addition to helping drivers and passengers, cab:app aims to help charities. We’re delighted to announce our launch partners in the UK are Action for Children, Barnardo’s, Target Ovarian Cancer and Penny for London. In Ireland, we’re working with the children’s hospice LauraLynn and the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association.
Update your app – from end of day Wed 25th November, please download the latest iOS and Android driver apps from the link https://invite.cabapp.io to accept jobs and the new features for passengers e.g. PayPal payment option, loyalty vouchers on longer journeys.
How it works - to help drivers get started Peter has created some short videos to explain the key features. Click to view http://j.mp/1R6gIc3
Cab:pay changes - in addition to pre-registering cards for jobs we have just added PayPal as a payment option to give passengers more choice. Combined with our new chip and pin device (which goes contactless from January) cab:app provides drivers with the cheapest, fastest payment solution on the market.
One of our competitors has directly contacted Visa to stop drivers using the manual option for processing Visa cards, which delayed our launch.Going forward we have agreed with Visa that drivers will only use the ‘Send Link’ feature to email or SMS the payment page to the passenger’s mobile device to enter their Visa card details.
Please view the ‘Send Link’ video http://j.mp/1R6gIc5 if easier you can always order a chip and pin from the ‘Promotions’ section of the driver app. For drivers taking payments from corporate accounts ‘not present’ in the cab you can also login to the website payment page to take all card payments https://cabapp.io/login
Thank you to everyone in advance for your support and patience, as the long term success of cab:app will ultimately be determined by drivers.
