“We never stop working towards an easier and more convenient way for customers to order and enjoy their McDonald’s favorites. We first changed the game with online and 24 hour McDelivery then came our McDo PH App, making our products available anytime, anywhere with the same goal in mind, we’re introducing contactless payment,” said Kenneth Yang, McDonald’s Philippines President and CEO.
McDonald’s enables a more convenient way to pay for dine-in, take-out, and drive-thru transactions. Customers can now use their credit and reloadable cash cards to purchase McDonald’s products.
This payment facility aims for better customer experience by reducing payment service time in a safe and more convenient way. The improved efficiency in store operations also reflects the company’s continuing innovation and commitment to fast service.
Close to 30 McDonald’s restaurants in Metro Manila are now equipped with a terminal to accept contactless card payments from Mastercard PayPass, VISA Paywave, e-Plus Tap To Pay Card, and Sweep Card.
This allows customers to do card transactions without having to enter a PIN or sign a receipt through the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology that ensure secure payments.
In 2015, more restaurants both in Metro Manila and provincial areas will be equipped with this technology. Customers can also look forward to contactless payment in Drive-Thru counters and McDelivery.
“The technology is another first in the local quick service restaurant industry, as it uses a single terminal to accept cards from different issuers. Through this, we have also formed partnerships with trusted brands to offer only the best service to our customers.” Yang added.
