Qkr! with MasterPass pay-at-table app goes live at Zizzi restaurants MasterCard mobile app will speed up bills for diners.
Developed by MasterCard Labs, Qkr! is already used to great acclaim throughout wagamama and ASK Italian restaurants, saving time for customers and waiters alike.
Studies show that the average time between asking for a bill and leaving a restaurant is between 10 and 12 minutes, but Qkr! reduces this to a few seconds.
Diners can search for nearby Zizzi restaurants in the app, and on arrival they will be prompted to ‘check in’, which generates a four-digit code. Customers share this code with the waiting staff when they order their meal.
Diners can then view the items they have ordered on their phone – and pay when they are ready. For other diners wishing to split the bill, they can input the same code into their phone, see the entire order, and select and pay for what is theirs when ready.
The app offers diners the following benefits:
• Convenience – control of how and when they pay. If they are in a hurry they can do so straight away, or if they are with friends they can split the bill.
• Simplicity – the app is easy to download and customers can register any payment card, not just a MasterCard.
• Security – MasterCard processes 65,000 secure transactions a minute. Diners know that their transaction is safe and secure.
For the restaurants the benefits are simple: quicker payments allow more customers to dine, and staff have more time to take orders and deliver food – and these benefits are passed to back to diners through more attentive and efficient service throughout their meal.
Qkr! with MasterPass is quickly building scale across UK restaurant chains, with Carluccio’s soon to accept payment this way. The versatility of the app is evidenced in its varied use around the world, from stadia at the Copa America football tournament in South America, to paying for schools meals in Australia and cinemas in the U.S.
