and

nowadays, mobile payment has made the “rounding” rules of some industries become a thing of the past. However, recently, some netizens in Neijiang, Sichuan Province reported that when they used wechat to pay for taxi fees, they still encountered the “rounding off” line rules, and even 40 cents of change had not been “given up” but “received” 50 cents.

and

in response to this, the local transportation department said that taxi drivers should charge according to the real price, and the practice of “rounding off” is wrong, and overcharging is a kind of disorderly charging behavior. Otherwise, the law enforcement department may, in addition to ordering it to correct immediately, impose a fine of more than 200 yuan and less than 2000 yuan. On September 28, the relevant person in charge of Neijiang transport management office also said that in the era of mobile payment, in addition to taxi drivers should charge according to the actual situation, passengers should also pay according to the actual situation, and it is not appropriate to use the habit of “rounding off” to erase the odd amount below 4 jiao.

according to netizens’ reflection, on September 13, he took a taxi in Neijiang, when getting off, the meter showed the fare was 16.7 yuan, but the taxi driver said it was 17 yuan.

“I said I paid by wechat and didn’t need change, but he (the taxi driver) said it was a business rule.” The netizen also said that another time, when he took a taxi, the meter showed that the cost was 15.4 yuan, while the taxi driver said it was 15.5 yuan. “I didn’t give up.”

and

therefore, while asking the relevant departments in Neijiang whether taxis have “rounding” regulations, the netizen also hopes that if there is no “rounding off”, this behavior should be standardized. “If it is a cash payment, it can also explain the inconvenience of change. Wechat payment does not have this problem.”
