MyCheck has announced a collaboration with PayPal to enable consumers to pay at table through the PayPal app.
The app itself will allow users to select a restaurant from a list, check-in to that specific restaurant and then view ordered items or prices on the mobile device, split the bill, add a tip, redeem an offer, accrue loyalty card stamps and then users can quickly check out by hitting the pay button.
Shlomit Kugler, MyCheck Co-Founder and Global CEO, “This is a hand-in-glove fit, broadening our reach by collaborating with PayPal to leverage their innovations, but also their large customer base. With MyCheck built into PayPal’s app, mobile app users will now be able to sidestep waiting for the check in full-service restaurants. Whether MyCheck is a standalone offering or built into another app such as PayPal’s, it provides significant benefits to the user. PayPal users enjoy the MyCheck experience without ever leaving the PayPal app; merchants benefit from the exposure of PayPal’s broad reach.”
“The MyCheck experience in the PayPal app is truly unique and will give people the ability to roll out of a venue like they own it! While there are tons of apps for checking-in to places, MyCheck technology lets you check out like a rock star,” states Tal Zvi Nathanel, Co-Founder and Americas CEO. “Our full-service merchants are already reaping the benefit of this collaboration via enhanced marketing and exposure to PayPal’s customers in the New York Metro area.”
