Today we’re introducing Uber Money, a team within Uber working on financial products and technologies that deliver additional value for the Uber community, all at Uber speed.

We’re excited to kick things off with several new features and improvements coming this year:

Uber Debit Account & Uber Debit Card: For eligible drivers in the US, and expanding to more countries soon after, we are updating the no-monthly-fee Uber Debit Account*, powered by Green Dot, to integrate seamlessly into the Uber Driver app. We also want to make every dollar spent go further, which is why the refreshed Uber Debit Card will launch (issued by

Dirty Money – Scientific American

Perhaps all money should be laundered.

Studies have piled up in recent years describing exactly how filthy—specifically how bacteria-laden—our dollars and cents can be. Fecal bacteria and other pathogens may have hitched a ride from someone’s hands, nose or apron onto our cash. And yeast or mold might have taken hold, too. The result could be a durable risk to our health whenever our money changes hands.

The fibrous surfaces of U.S. currency provide ample crevices for bacteria to make themselves at home. And the longer any of that money stays in circulation, the more opportunity it has to become contaminated. Lower-denomination bills are used more often, so studies suggest our ones, fives and tens are more likely to be teeming with disease-causing bacteria. Some of these pathogens are known to survive for months, according to a recent review of “dirty money” studies. Unfortunately, dirty dollars—whether denominations of $1 or

    Money Orders – Walmart.com – Walmart.com

    Make transactions convenient with money orders

    Money orders are official documents representing a specific monetary value, similarly to written checks. However, money orders are different from other forms of payment in a few different ways, which you can read about below. What’s important to know up front is that money orders are prepaid, so you must be able to pay for the full amount you want to include in your money order when you go to purchase it. For example, if you want to send a $100 money order to a family member, you need to be able to pay $100 up front in order to create the money order. Money orders aren’t a form of credit and don’t require a credit score, and you don’t even need a bank account to pay for one. This makes money orders an accessible form of payment for people in a wide

    Money Order Basics: Tips for Payments

    Whether you’re buying or selling something, a money order might be your best option (or your only option) for payment. It’s considered a “safe” form of payment, making it a popular alternative to checks. But it’s important to understand the basic pros and cons of using money orders—and when other payment methods are a better choice.

    What Is a Money Order?

    A money order is a paper document, similar to a check, used for making payments. Money orders are prepaid, so they are only issued after a buyer pays for the money order with cash or another form of guaranteed funds.

    Guaranteed Funds

    Because issuers demand payment upfront, money orders are considered relatively safe, or “guaranteed,” forms of payment. They shouldn’t bounce—as personal checks might.

    Specific Payee

    The name of a payee (the recipient) and the name of a financial institution that issued it appear on
