Uber向荷兰央行提出电子货币牌照申请

近日有消息称,网约车平台Uber已经向荷兰央行提交了电子货币牌照申请。Uber发言人对Sky News证实了这一消息。

Uber方面表示,希望借助这一牌照拓展产品范围,提高用户使用体验,增加付款处理方式,保持该公司在欧洲业务的持续创新和增长。

据了解,这项申请主要由一家名为Uber Payments BV的全新子公司负责处理。

市场猜测,Uber可能是希望模仿东南亚竞争对手Grab的成功,后者拥有自己的P2P支付应用程序,并且最近通过推出专门的部门和引入小额贷款和保险产品,进一步深入金融服务领域。

Ride hailing behemoth Uber has confirmed that it has applied to the Dutch central bank for an e-money license as it looks to broaden its range of consumer-facing services. In a statement issued to Sky News, an Uber spokesperson confirmed: "We have submitted an application for an e-money licence in the Netherlands, where Uber's international headquarters is based.

"We are constantly expanding the range of products we offer and improving the experience for those who use our apps. The way we handle payments is an important part of that.

"An e-money licence will enable us to support the continued innovation and growth of our business in Europe by streamlining our payment processes."

According to Sky sources, the application is being handled by a new subsidiary called Uber Payments BV.

Uber may be hoping to emulate the success of South East Asian rival Grab, which has its own P2P payments app and recently moved deeper into financial services with the launch of a dedicated unit and the introduction of micro-loans and insurance products.
