Uber - Wednesday - Feature - Anything - Apple

Uber on Wednesday announced a new feature that will let you buy anything from Apple AirPods to luxury suitcases all from the back seat of your ride.

The partnership with new options for spending money — while already spending money on a ride — is made possible through a new partnership with Cargo, a startup that's quietly raised about $35 million for backseat commerce.

Drivers - Time - Passenger - Orders - Something

Drivers will earn an extra $1 every time a passenger orders something from the Cargo App Store, Uber said, and passengers will get 10% back as credit for future rides.

To use the app, first you'll need to scan your drivers' QR code using the separate Cargo app. Even just by checking in, you'll be able to play a card game and win prizes.
