PayPal has partnered with Rabobank Bank-backed MyOrder to allow PayPal users to pre-order and purchase items prior to arrival at a restaurant, pay from their table and even cover their parking costs, all from their mobile phone.
Today we announced that PayPal payments would now be accepted at 1,500 locations across the Netherlands. These are not online locations. These are cafes, cinemas, restaurants and parking meters. From today, it becomes possible to order and pay for food or drinks ahead of arriving at a cafe; to pay at the table in a restaurant without calling over the waiter, or pay for parking without searching for the closest meter. All that's needed is the PayPal smartphone application linked to a PayPal account. By clicking on the local tab, app users will be able to see participating local businesses nearby, swipe to check-in to the one they want, and pay directly with PayPal. It’s all part of PayPal’s mission to make life easier and give people more control over their money. This development was made possible thanks to a partnership with MyOrder, the mobile order and payment system backed by Rabobank in the Netherlands.
