NEW YORK, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — MyCheck, the leading checkout app for restaurants and other businesses across four major markets worldwide, has collaborated with PayPal to enable consumers to pay at table through the PayPal app. The app itself enables users to select a restaurant from a list, check-in to the venue, and once there, view ordered items and prices on the mobile device, split the bill (if desired), add a tip, redeem an offer, accrue loyalty card stamps, quickly check out by hitting the pay button without waiting for a check, and receive an email receipt.
Notes 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 capability has been operating in the UK version of the PayPal app for approximately nine months, where successful joint advertising campaigns with the Prezzo and Busaba Eathai restaurant chain drove significant adoption and usage of the app. Today’s announcement reflects the expansion of the capability into the US market. Among the many New York City full service establishments that now accept the PayPal app powered by MyCheck are high profile names that include Gotham Bar & Grill, Rouge Tomate and Pera Mediterranean Brasserie.
“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,” Nathanel added.
Merchants benefit from offering the pay at table option in multiple ways, with faster turnarounds, fewer chargebacks, the ability to spend time on customer service that would have otherwise been spent preparing checks, and developing more targeted marketing based on consumption.
MyCheck is a revolutionary checkout technology that allows users in restaurants to view, split, and pay their bill in real-time from their mobile device without waiting for the check or the credit card slip. The technology comes in 3 forms – a standalone consumer app that can be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play; a white label platform that has been adopted by many restaurant chains and as a “MyCheck Inside” capability that powers other consumer apps that are aimed at the hospitality sector. MyCheck technology has been adopted by industry giants such as Isracard (Mastercard’s licensee in Israel) and others. This wide reach is made possible due to the platform’s integration with ~25 restaurant point of sale systems to provide a seamless experience for both the merchant and the user.
