Okay, finally an App that I can really get into having on my smartphone – the new Burger King App that allows you to do everything but control your appetite. You can unlock special coupons that only App users have access, explore their menu and even get the nutritional information (he types with a BIG smile on his face). You can locate the nearest Burger King restaurant and in select areas and it will tell you what options are available at each location – you can even get step-by-step directions to drive there. In certain areas you can even pay for your order with your mobile phone…with a credit/debit card and now even your PayPal account.
BURGER KING collaboration with Tillster Inc to develop an App to allow their customers in the U.S the ability to pay for their meals using PayPal. PayPal wrote:
“With the BURGER KING App, guests can receive exclusive offers and discounts at BK restaurants, find their closest BK® restaurant, and browse the menu and nutritional information. We will be rolling out later this quarter across the United States to all locations, BK restaurant guests will be able to securely pay with PayPal by simply launching the app and when they select to pay with PayPal they will be prompted with a four-digit pin to pay.”
After exploring the App, it looks like they will eventually be adding delivery services as well – a great idea that only compliments the Burger King App. Ordering food from your smartphone will become very common place in the near future – Taco Bell jumped on board last week. The main problem I see is having to have so many Apps – one for each establishment – on your device…ah, so many restaurants and so little time. PayPal is also introducing ‘Pay After Delivery,’ where you will have up to 14 days to make your payment – Wimpy from the old Popeye cartoon would love it – “I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” – now he can with PayPal!
