Domino’s, the local pizza delivery expert, has made ordering a pizza online even quicker and easier by linking up with PayPal.
Following customer feedback, Domino’s has launched PayPal as its newest payment method for pizza. Customers in the UK simply need to log in to their PayPal account once they’ve placed their pizza order, enabling them to pay just by entering their email address and password.
PayPal is free to use on all Domino’s orders and is a great way for people to buy pizza for friends and family too – perfect if you’ve mouths to feed who are away at university or even if you just fancy treating someone to dinner.
Simon Wallis, sales and marketing director for Domino’s, said: “Online orders account for an increasingly large proportion of our sales and as part of this, we are continually looking for ways to improve the process and make it even more user-friendly. Our customers and Facebook fans told us they wanted an easier way to pay – we listened to them and we’re now pleased to introduce PayPal, which is fast, safe and secure. It’s great to be able to offer our customers the option of using PayPal to pay for pizza in just a couple of clicks!”
Cameron McLean, general manager, merchant services at PayPal, said: “We welcome Domino’s on board as our latest high street partner and one of the first pizza delivery companies to join us. This innovative partnership is a natural step for both companies, given Domino’s phenomenal growth in online orders and PayPal’s extensive experience with large retailers.”
Domino’s link up with PayPal will be communicated to pizza lovers and PayPal users through a range of digital platforms including social media, email and online advertisements.
