The function will be available for World Cup fans from Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America from June 1 to July 22. After the event, the non-cash payments for taxi will be available for guests from 32 European and 13 Asian countries on an ongoing basis.
For tourists who do not speak Russian, are poorly familiar with the Russian currency or avoid carrying cash in a foreign country, it will be easy to book a taxi and pay for the trip. The Maxim application is multilingual and supports English, Azerbaijani, Bulgarian, Spanish, Indonesian, Italian, Georgian, Kazakh, Tajik and Ukrainian. The bank card payments for taxi allow you to avoid dealing with cash in a taxi and fully automate the payment process: for currency conversion the card issuer’s rate is applied.
To link a bank card to the Maxim application, the cardholder should touch the payment method icon on the booking screen and choose the info symbol next to the Account column. After that s/he should choose the «Link card» option on the displayed screen, enter card details and click «Pay». After that, the user will be able to choose a payment method when booking a taxi.

The money transactions and card details are processed by an acquiring partner in strict compliance with the requirements of payment systems. This prevents the user's personal data theft during the bank card payments.
«Previous world football championships were attended by about a million of foreign tourists. This time many foreigners will come to Russia, too. Most fans will take special public transport vehicles, while some will prefer more comfortable trips, especially taking into account the lower prices for taxis in Russia as compared to many other countries. We expect the growth in bookings by 10-20%. With international acquiring, the foreigners can be sure of the security and convenience of non-cash payments», says Alexey Markin, Regional Development Director at Maxim Taxi Service.
