Mobile payments program is expanding to New York

OpenTable is getting ready to expand into new markets later this year

OpenTable is a mobile payments program that was first announced in early February by a company of the same name. The company has been experimenting with the program for some time, evaluating its viability as a comprehensive mobile commerce service. Thus far, OpenTable has proven to be quite useful and has received support from consumers and businesses alike. The program is designed to appeal to the food service industry, where mobile commerce is beginning to see more adoption.

Restaurants are looking for mobile-centric services

Restaurants are beginning to take steps to cater to mobile consumers. These consumers are looking for ways to use their smartphones and tablets to place orders and make payments in a way that is convenient to them. Convenience is one of the major appeals of mobile commerce and those in the food service industry are looking to provide effective services that highlight this convenience.

OpenTable plans to be available in 20 large cities by the end of the year

OpenTable - Mobile Payments New YorkOpenTable has announced that it is expanding its services to New York. A number of restaurants in the state will begin making use of the mobile payments program and the company believes that its program will be put to use in 20 large cities throughout the U.S. by the end of the year. OpenTable will facilitate mobile payments for those visiting restaurants that are using the program. In some cases, consumers will be able to make payments directly from their smartphones. Some restaurants will provide a tablet device at the table, allowing customers to pay for their meals from through that device.

OpenTable to take advantage of its large consumer base in order to compete with other programs

OpenTable will be competing in a very crowded market. Mobile commerce services are becoming more common and many of these services are beginning to cater to the needs of the food service industry. In order to effectively compete, OpenTable is leveraging its already sizeable consumer base. The OpenTable application comes pre-installed on many smartphones, making it one of the most widely available, but not necessarily widely used, apps in the mobile commerce market.

Mobile payments option offered by Foodpanda app

Android and iOS users of the Foodpanda app can now enjoy a quick and convenient payment service.

A cashless mobile payments option is a new feature offered by the popular mobile food delivery app, which now gives users the ability to not only easily order food from a variety of restaurants based on their location via their mobile device, but lets them pay for it immediately while using their device, as well.

To activate the payments service, users only need to link their credit card.

In order to be able to benefit from this feature, Android and iOS users need to download the 2.0.9 version of the Foodpanda app. They will then need to link their credit card for the service to work. It is a quick and easy process and it gives users the freedom to order their food without having to worry about having cash when it is delivered. Instead, the payment process is already taken care of at the time the order was placed. Thus, Foodpanda users can go cashless by paying for the food delivery service in advance.

The in-app mobile payments feature only works if restaurants support online payments.

Mobile Payments App for Food Delivery One of the drawbacks of this service, however, is that it is not an option for every restaurant. In order for it to work, the restaurant must support online payments and be integrated into the Foodpanda system. Therefore, not every one of the restaurants listed will work with the m-payments option.

While its latest in-app payments feature is not an original concept, as its competitors, GrubHub and Just Eat added this feature a while back, Foodpanda remains popular. Mobile users like that the app gives them the ability to browse and order food from restaurant menus that are available near their location. Furthermore, the service operates in more than 20 countries, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Philippines, Georgia, Cambodia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Serbia and others.

In addition to the new cashless mobile payments feature, the app’s overall performance was improved and the interface of the app was reworked. There were also more restaurants added. The latest version of the Foodpanda app is available for download at both Apple’s App’s Store and Google Play.
