MasterCard has teamed with ASK Italian, Zizzi (both part of the Azzurri Group) and Carluccio’s to bring their customers a more convenient, speedier and fuss-free way to pay for their meals via the Qkr! with MasterPass app on their phone.
The Qkr! app, developed by MasterCard Labs, allows diners to pay for their bill as and when ready and offers the following benefits:
• Convenience – customers are in control of how and when they pay. If in a hurry they can pay as soon as they wish or when dining with friends or colleagues they can split the bill and pay.
• Simplicity – the app is easy to download and customers can register with any payment card, not just a MasterCard.
• Security – MasterCard processes 65,000 secure transactions a minute. Diners can be reassured their transaction will be safe and secure.
MasterCard partnered with wagamama earlier this year to launch Qkr! with MasterPass in the UK. It was the first restaurant chain to offer this new innovation in payments from MasterCard and has been a real success story for wagamama. Its popularity means new features will be made available soon, enabling wagamama diners to browse the menu using the app and order extra food or drinks straight to their table.
MasterCard Payment Gateway Services* technology is integrated at the core of the Qkr! solution, it simply and efficiently connects restaurants and enables safe, end-to-end payment acceptance across all major payment brands.
Qkr! with MasterPass app is available for wagamama diners and will be available for customers at Ask Italian, Zizzi and Carluccio’s towards the end of 2015.
