Uber SA now offers a medicine delivery service
Uber South Africa announced that it has used its UberEats service to partner with Medicare to provide users access to over-the-counter medication directly on the Uber Eats app.
Users will also be able to schedule medicine for the delivery without the recipient having to leave home.
How it works, is that before your order your medication, the user will have to provide personal details such as their full name, address, and contact number as this is required by law.
The individual who accepts the medication will also need to provide a form of identification upon delivery.
“We strongly believe in reinventing pharmacy, and thanks to this partnership with Uber Eats this is made possible,” said Medicare CEO Tim Knapp.
“Getting the medication South Africans need, when they need it, without the risk of leaving their home is just the beginning as we continue to explore how best we can bring access, convenience and reliability in our everyday needs.”
“Seeing how quickly locals adopted an online platform allowed us the opportunity to significantly scale our offerings to cater for more than just food, moving to just about anything that one might need to live comfortably at home,” said Shane Austin, General Manager of Uber Eats in Sub Saharan Africa in a statement.
