Snacks for sale by QR code in selected Nanjing taxis
Passengers can now buy snacks and drinks by scanning QR codes in more than 400 taxis across Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, much like an “in-vehicle convenience store," Modern Express reported.
The pilot program is also a gesture to increase taxi drivers' incomes as each driver will receive 15 percent for every item sold, according to Ling Qiang, secretary-general of the city’s taxi association.
The taxis participating are equipped with a storage sack loaded with various kinds of snacks, drinks and bottled water behind the passenger seat. Items have a similar price as those sold in supermarkets.
