How can I pay by card machine?

Users in Portugal can choose to pay by debit or credit card using the driver’s card machine at the end of the journey.

To do so, you need to change your selected payment method in the app before ordering your ride:

  • Open the menu in the app by pressing your photo icon
  • Select ‘Payment’
  • Add a new one by pressing ‘+’ or ‘Add’
  • Select ‘Card Machine payment’
  • You’ll be sent a verification code via SMS
  • Enter the code and you’ll be ready to pay by card!


From now on, you’ll pay for all your Cabify journeys at the end of the trip. Check the app at the end of your journey to see the final price and pay by debit or credit card using the driver’s card machine.

If you want to go back to an alternative payment method such as automatic credit or debit card payment, or PayPal, just repeat the steps above and choose your preferred method.

Please note: Discounts do not currently apply when paying via card machine.
