It is hoped the move will make it easier for Voi users to pick up an e-scooter, without the need to hassle with filling in bank card details.

Until now, riders have had to store means of payment in the app for billing, such as credit card details or Pay-Pal.

Carro Hjelm, head of marketing of Voi Technology, said: "We want our service to be easy to access for anyone, no matter what payment method they prefer."
