You Can Accept Credit Cards NOW
Some great news for Taxi drivers in Dublin is that drivers who register on our website and download the Hailo app to their iPhone can begin accepting credit or debit cards from street-hail jobs right away. How handy is that?
How It Works
When you've gone POB on the Hailo app, you simply tap 'Take Payment' at your destination and you'll be given the option to take Cash or Card payment. If you select Card, it's then a straight-forward process of entering the fare total, adding a tip, entering the card details and then tapping submit. At the end of the process you can also provide your passenger with an electronic receipt via email or SMS.
Fast Pay Option
Forgot to go POB at the start of the journey? No problem.
Just tap our Fast Pay button, enter the Pickup/Dropoff locations and the rest of the steps are the same as for any other journey.
In future, Hailo will also allow passengers to pre-register their cards in the app, making the entire process even faster and simpler for everyone.
No Base Fees For Drivers. No Charges For Passengers.
Hailo does not charge a subscription fee to drivers for using the app, however, Hailo does pass on to drivers the average 4% processing fee that the card providers charge for transactions. Passengers pay nothing for using Hailo, which means more jobs and better tips.
In the near future, when we begin offering our drivers jobs from registered Hailo passengers, that 4% fee will be included in our commission which will total 10%.
