Tillster, a digital ordering and engagement platform for restaurants, has entered into a strategic agreement with PayPal, allowing customers to pay for their bill whenever they want via their mobile phone.
The partnership entitles PayPal to incorporate their mobile wallet app within Tillster’s entire restaurant portfolio. PayPal can also be leveraged as a funding option across Tillster’s branded and owned assets.
‘‘PayPal’s vision for seamless in-store payment pairs well with our branded mobile applications, so this is an exciting development towards facilitating digital commerce in restaurants,” said Perse Faily, Chief Executive Officer of Tillster.
The collaboration will ultimately have a positive effect on individual restaurants, as Tillster customers will be able to pay for their meals whenever they choose during their meal using PayPal’s technology, which could increase productivity within many eateries.
‘‘Now, customers can pay for meals with the click of a button and our partners can turn tables faster, improve in-store operational efficiencies and drive increased engagement and usage of their mobile applications,’’ continued Faily.
Tillster has so far processed over 35 million digital orders in the United States. Their restaurant partners include Burger King, KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. As part of the strategic agreement, PayPal have access to potentially millions of offline transactions across Tillster’s restaurant industry client base.
‘‘At PayPal, we take a partner-based and technology agnostic approach to payments. We are always looking for new and exciting ways that make it easier for merchants to offer added convenience for their customers to pay how, when and where they want,” said Robert Clarkson, Vice President, Merchant and Retail Solutions at PayPal.
