Square tests food ordering app

28 February 2014  |  5038 views  |  0 Woman with shopping bag

Square is testing a mobile app which lets users order and pay for food from participating restaurants before picking it up.

As first noticed by Priceonomics, the Square Pickup Android and iOS app is being beta tested at several San Francisco food outlets. Square is refusing to comment but has a page on its Web site for invited beta testers.

The app displays the restaurant's menu from which the user picks their order before paying with Square and picking it up when it's ready.

As Priceonomics notes, Pickup is not original, offering a similar service to OrderAhead and Seamless. PayPal has also trialled an order-ahead feature in Australia.

However, Square will be looking to take advantage of the fact that it already has a large base of independent restaurants using its mPOS technology that can easily be brought onboard.
