MobileBytes is launching a new mobile payment option for table service restaurants called Scan-to-Pay.
Imagine with me for a moment that you arrive at a restaurant with your phone in your pocket. iBeacon technology alerts the POS system that you’ve arrived and displays your guest information to the restaurant host.
The host taps your picture when you walk in the door and adds you to the waitlist with the touch of a button. Instead of being handed a large pager, you’re greeted by name and told your table will be ready shortly.
Without having to give the restaurant your phone number, you receive a text message when your table is ready. When the server comes to your table, they know your name, and your previous order history. “Would you like the Santa Fe Burger with no onions again today, or are you in the mood for something new?”
With the touch of a button, your favorite menu items are added to the check and customized just the way you like them.
Finally, when your server drops off your check, you don’t have to hand over your credit card or wait to pay your bill. You simply use your phone to scan the QR code printed on the bottom of your meal ticket, enter the amount you want to tip and pay the bill through your phone. The entire payment process takes less than 10-seconds and you are on your way out the door to enjoy the rest of your day.
This is not a futuristic restaurant experience. It’s Scan-to-Pay and it’s available to implement at your restaurant today.
Scan-to-Pay is designed to help your restaurant turn tables faster while providing an improved and personalized customer experience.
At participating restaurants, Scan-to-Pay is even able to connect with your MobileBytes loyalty program. This gives guests the opportunity to automatically earn rewards after enough points have been accrued without having to enter separate information.
Once the guest has paid, the restaurant and server are immediately notified through their MobileBytes POS system.
Scan-to-Pay does not store your customer’s credit card data. Instead, encrypted tokens are used to make guests’ card data secure. This allows a guest to reuse their credit card for future transactions without needing to re-enter their card number.
The best part about Scan-to-Pay? It is included in MobileBytes powerful suite of features at no additional cost. Which means restaurants receive all of the benefits of mobile payment without the added cost of a third party mobile payments provider.
