OPay, the Africa-focused fintech firm owned by Opera has launched yet another vertical; a car-hailing service called OCar in Nigeria.
OCar is definitely going to compete with UBER and Bolt (formerly known has Taxify). OCar still in the beta phase and available currently in Lagos, Owerri, Port-Harcourt, Abuja, Benin, Kaduna, Abeokuta, and Ibadan.
It can be accessed from OPay mobile app; you can update your OPay app to get the latest feature. So far, only Lagos has been activated, according to OPay.
OPay is offering massive discounts to its prospective O Car customers to drive patronage. For as low as 200 Naira, you go anywhere in the aforementioned cities.
What if I want to be an Ocar Driver?
As is industry standard practice, intending OCar drivers is to sign up with their cars on the platform, get verified and accredited before onboarding.
OCar charges drivers a 15% commission, unlike UBER that maintains a 25% flat rate. OPay claims that the 15% commission reduces to 3% after drivers have done 20 trips within the same week.
The question OPay users have been asking is OPay willing to train their drivers differently considering the misconducts of UBER drivers?
OPay is not just a wallet, but an amazing super app that offers everyday services to Nigerians.
