Ride-hailing company Bolt, said it is working with Nigerian fintech firm CredPal to introduce ride-now pay-later services to its customers.
The companies said that the new model will enable Nigerians of all classes, both corporate and individuals, to gain access to credit rides without bothering about immediate payments, but can pay by the end of the Month.

With the new arrangement, customers will have to first sign up with CredPal which will underwrite the cost of the trip.
