A recently announced partnership merger between Eat Now and PayPal last week gives customers the ability to order and pay for food from more than 3,000 Australian eateries using their smartphones or other personal data device via PayPal's newly integrated app.
Sydney, NSW -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/29/2013 --Representatives from Australia's popular Eat Now online food ordering site are excited about their recent partnership with PayPal. The partnership will allow Eat Now customers to use a newly-integrated app from PayPal on their smartphones to order and pay for their food in advance from more than 3,000 businesses across the country.
The idea behind the partnership was to give consumers more options when it comes to choosing how they pay for things both online and offline. Instead of using traditional credit or debit cards to pay order and pay for food online, Eat Now customers can also use their PayPal cash balance to fund the purchase, if they choose.
Eat Now considers the partnership as a step in the future direction of a cashless society where people pay for most – if not all – of their purchases digitally, whether it be from a smartphone, tablet or some other personal data device. Eat Now has seen a significant increase in people ordering food from their mobile devices and considers this another great avenue to provide for their customers to help streamline the process.
