Lightspeed partnership with Uber Direct and Uber Eats to unlock new opportunities for merchants

Lightspeed's new North American partnership with Uber Direct and Uber Eats is expected to streamline delivery services and operational capabilities for merchants like hotels, restaurants, and retail, while expanding their market reach by accessing millions of new potential customers.

  • The new partnership promises cost-effective delivery through Uber Direct, keeping merchants free from the headache and resources needed to build and maintain a delivery fleet. This will slash overhead costs and logistics, so merchants can focus on their core operations and growth.
  • The Montreal-based payments technology company said the integrations create an option for Lightspeed customers to list menu offerings and receive orders direct from the Uber Eats marketplace. They will also be able to take orders through their own branded website with the order-anywhere system of Lightspeed and then use Uber Direct for delivery. Other offerings from Uber Direct include a same-day or next-day delivery service that uses API integrations and no-code tools for its business customers.

  • Prior to the company's collaboration with Lightspeed, Uber Direct and Uber Eats managed their integrated payments workflows through their own payment systems, a mix that included in-house processing, third-party payment providers like Stripe and Adyen, and mobile payment integrations such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal.

Conclusion

This collaboration enables merchants to focus on their core operations and growth while offering customers efficient and cost-effective delivery options. Ultimately, this partnership fosters innovation and growth in the fintech space, setting a new standard for delivery services and operational capabilities for merchants.
