The tie-up with Stripe will allow Uber customers to pay easily with their bank accounts and without having to pull out their wallet.

Uber (NYSE: UBER) has signed an expanded global partnership with Stripe, the financial infrastructure platform for businesses, to reduce payments costs and provide more payment options to customers.

The partnership will see Uber use Stripe’s payments platform, including Link and Stripe Financial Connections, to allow customers to add bank accounts securely and reuse saved bank details for future purchases with Uber Rides or Uber Eats. Link is Stripe’s native one-click checkout that speeds up checkout by saving customer payment details that can be used for subsequent purchases at any Link-enabled business. (Stripe)
