LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) May 16, 2016
ChowNow, the leading online ordering and marketing platform for restaurants, is proud to announce a new partnership with Google that will bring Android Pay to over 4,000 independent restaurants across the United States. All ChowNow restaurant clients' ordering apps will be updated to include Android Pay at no additional cost, and all new restaurant clients will receive it as a standard feature.
"We continue to uphold our mission of helping independent restaurants compete with larger chains by providing them with technology that would be both difficult and cost-prohibitive for them to build themselves," said Chris Webb, CEO of ChowNow.
The addition of Android Pay benefits both restaurants and their customers. Rather than manually inputting their credit card number and billing address, customers with an Android phone will simply be able to tap the "Buy with Android Pay" button. As a result of the added convenience and reduced ordering times, restaurants should see increased order volumes, and hence a more profitable to-go business. With 70 million Android phones currently in use the addition of Android Pay has broad appeal.
"In addition to increased convenience, Android Pay also offers an extra layer of security to both consumers and restaurants," says Webb. With Android Pay Fraud Protection 100% of verified unauthorized Android Pay transactions in the US are covered. "At ChowNow we pride ourselves in strengthening the relationship between our restaurant clients and their customers, and now that relationship is stronger and more secure than ever. This partnership is a win for everyone involved."
ChowNow is the leading online ordering and marketing platform that helps restaurants stay competitive and thrive in an increasingly tech-driven world by enabling customers to order directly from the restaurant’s website, Facebook page, and custom-built branded iPhone and Android apps. ChowNow currently serves over 4,000 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada, and boasts a client list that includes distinguished chefs, regional chains, independent restaurants, and the US military.
