PayPal announced that Burger King customers will soon be able to pay for their meals using PayPal thanks to a collaboration between PayPal and Tillster and one between Tillster and Burger King. This is in the U.S.
“Tillster worked with Burger King Corporation to develop the Burger King app (available for iOS and Android), which offers customers increased convenience and savings,” PayPal chief product officer Hill Ferguson says. “With the Burger King App, guests can receive exclusive offers and discounts at BK restaurants, find their closest BK restaurant, and browse the menu and nutritional information.”
“We will be rolling [it] out later this quarter across the United States to all locations,” Ferguson adds. “BK restaurant guests will be able to securely pay with PayPal by simply launching the app and when they select to pay with PayPal they will be prompted with a four digit pin to pay.”
We seem to be officially entering the era of paying for fast food with non-traditional means. Taco Bell launched a new mobile app last week to much fanfare, enabling users to order and pay using their smartphones.
PayPal also announced that it’s been working with GoDaddy on its new Online Store to offer businesses ways to build e-commerce websites.
