Arlington, VA, January/February XX, 2022 – Restaurant commerce platform GoTab has partnered with MasterCard to implement Click to Pay technology for hospitality venues across the country, further transforming the customer digital payment experience. Selected among best-of-breed food technology solutions to pilot this new program, GoTab joins an impressive list of prominent MasterCard partners that provide customers with a secure and seamless payment experience.
With this new embedded checkout experience, customers can add their MasterCard after opening their tab on their smartphone (via a QR code) at GoTab-operated venues. By selecting the fast and secure click-to-pay system, a consumers’ payment method and profile are automatically saved, providing them with the opportunity to add food and drinks to their tab, or close their tab without having to worry about payment. Once diners are ready to leave, their tab is automatically charged to their MasterCard, providing a quick and secure checkout experience. To further enhance this seamless checkout journey, customers can opt to keep their MasterCard on file within their GoTab profile, via click-to-pay technology, so a customer never has to re-enter their credit card data into a GoTab-operated venue.
“At GoTab, we strive to help our operators enhance the guest experience,” said GoTab CEO Tim McLaughlin. “MasterCard’s click-to-pay technology is the perfect partner solution to simplify and make the checkout process easier, faster and completely seamless. As we get ready to process $1 billion in GMV in 2022, we are honored to work hand-in-hand with MasterCard, one of the most innovative global payment technology solutions, and allow our operators to deliver a safe and enjoyable guest experience,” he added.
As part of the pilot program, GoTab rolled out MasterCard’s click-to-pay technology across various Stone Brewing locations in California and Virginia. “We had a very successful run with GoTab and MasterCard’s click-to-pay technology across all of our taprooms and bistros,” said Gregg Frazer, VP of Hospitality for Stone Brewing. “Our guests were already big fans of GoTab, but the pilot program with MasterCard made the payment experience even better.”
Started in 2016 as an e-commerce solution for on-premise ordering, GoTab has since evolved into a comprehensive restaurant commerce platform, with full POS, kitchen operations and delivery capabilities. A true cloud-based solution, GoTab allows guests to order and pay directly from their smartphone without having to download an app or create a password. Operators can also rely on GoTab’s mobile POS, contactless ordering and payment features, and kitchen management systems (KMS) to run efficient, profitable operations.
