In October 2020, in a global first, Amazon Pay and Uber had announced an association for allowing Uber riders to make contactless, cashless payments using Amazon Pay.

As a part of the expansion of this partnership, riders on Uber's platform who now pay through Amazon Pay will be eligible for a cashback up to 50 per cent for every ride, the statement further said.
