RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Ride-hailing app 99 will allow payment for rides via PIX starting this month. The payment method is integrated into the application and, in this first launching stage, is available in the cities of Maringá, Santos, Brasília, Limeira, Bauru, Piracicaba, Ponta Grossa, and Cuiabá. The new instant payment system from the Central Bank, called PIX, is cheered by Brazilians and already used by 6 out of 10 Brazilians.
The payment of rides via PIX on 99 is not made to the driver's personal account. Instead, the transfer is made to the application, as happens . . .
