"App-based workers, including drivers and delivery people on Uber, play an integral part in our economy and they require flexible financial products to meet their unique needs," said Balinder Ahluwalia, Senior Vice President Market Development, Mastercard in Canada. "Through this partnership with Uber and Payfare, we are enabling app-based workers to scale their business by providing them with cash flow when they need it most."

The Uber Pro Card will be available via mobile wallets and enables seamless contactless payments, so drivers and delivery people can begin spending immediately. They can track earnings, transfer funds, earn rewards, and manage savings all through the Uber Pro Card app.

"Uber is our longest tenured app-based platform partner and we are pleased to expand our partnership with the all new Uber Pro Card in Canada," said Marco Margiotta, CEO and Founding Partner of Payfare. "Free instant access to earnings and tailored incentives for gig workers help our cardholders every day while also benefiting our app-based platform partners with increased engagement of drivers and delivery people."
