#Asia India’s online marketplace Snapdeal partners with Uber in a first-of-its-kind API integration


Customers can now book an Uber directly from the Snapdeal app


Snapdeal, an India-based online marketplace, has recently launched a first-of-its-kind frictionless in-app integration with Uber, a global on-demand smart mobility app. Through this integration, Uber aims to make travel quicker and easier for millions of Snapdeal customers who will now be able to request an Uber directly through the Snapdeal app.

Recently, Snapdeal has also announced the launch of a range of services on its platform, allowing customers to book flights, order food and pay bills directly through its app.

This time, by integrating the Uber API, Snapdeal aims to give its customers a holistic experience. When a user books a flight or a hotel from the Snapdeal app, they can travel to the airport or the hotel using Uber, booked from within the Snapdeal app itself without having the Uber app installed on their devices.

We are confident that this integration will further provide an exemplary experience to our customers,” said Tony Navin, Senior Vice President, Partnerships and Strategic Initiatives, Snapdeal, in a press statement.
