Following the success of its launch last year, payo, “Australia’s first” ‘Eat Now, Pay Later’ app, has introduced a new way to pay with the launch of its payo checkout offering.
The new time saving platform will be rolled out from this month across payo’s partnering restaurants and beyond. Enabling customers to pay their bill in seconds, payo checkout’s unique offering increases customer satisfaction, removing wait times for the bill without the need to sign up to an app. Customers can enjoy their meal at the table and check themselves out using the unique payo checkout QR code on the table.
Each table’s uniquely branded QR code is fully integrated into the venue’s point of sale system, allowing contactless payment, bringing up the bill when scanned, after a customer completes their meal. From there, customers can select from three different payment options including Apple Pay, Google Pay or payo where they have the option to pay in four interest-free, equal instalments. To use payo checkout, app download is not required to make payment, making it a smooth payment process for the customer.
Built by hospo for hospo, payo’s new self-checkout offering is also designed to address inefficiencies and streamline workflows, with over 30% of waitstaffs’ time spent on managing bill payments.
“The first of its kind to market, it is also helping provide solutions for other challenges facing the hospitality industry, including staffing shortages which has become an increasing issue in the current, pandemic climate. This allows restaurants to welcome more customers into their venues, due to a faster turnover time through payo checkout.”
payo co-founder and CEO Taf Chiwanza says: “Hospitality still has many dated practices. As an example, a table of eight that wants to split a bill will wait to scan a payment terminal and the staff has to enter the amount eight times. Payo’s split the bill option solves this problem. We are changing up how things have been done for decades. The same way grocery stores revolutionised the payment process with self-checkouts, we are now doing this for restaurants. Table technology is a growing channel that is increasingly being adopted by venues across Australia.”
Businesses can implement this offering with payo’s easy set up process:
- Register your business with payo
- The onboarding team will attend your venue to set up
