Consumers who want to purchase and pick up their food quickly and easily will soon be able to do so at more of their favorite restaurants.
Later this summer, the BURGER KING® brand will expand its use of MasterPass to its BURGER KING® app which offers exclusive deals and allows users to locate the nearest BURGER KING® restaurant, explore the BURGER KING® menu, and pay directly with their phone. BKDelivers.com was one of the first original merchants to use the digital payments platform when it launched in 2013. Starting this fall, Firehouse Subs will begin accepting MasterPass for faster, easier and more convenient online ordering from FirehouseSubs.com.
MasterPass enables consumers to pay for the things they want with the security they demand, online or in app, using any device. Now accepted in 23 countries, the platform securely stores payment and shipping information, which is readily accessible when a consumer checks out using the, “Buy with MasterPass” button and logs into their account.
“Quick service restaurants are focused on providing quality food as conveniently as possible,” said Michael Cyr, group executive, U.S. Market Development, MasterCard. “With MasterPass, consumers can go online, place their order and pay with just one click—the hassle of entering delivery and billing information is eliminated, meaning less time they’ll be waiting for their meal.”
“Firehouse Subs is excited to harness this new mobile payment technology on FirehouseSubs.com,” said Vince Burchianti, Chief Financial Officer, Firehouse of America, LLC. “Innovation and exceptional customer service are two core values that MasterPass and Firehouse Subs share, and by moving in this direction, Firehouse Subs is able to simplify the checkout process and provide our guests a simple, convenient and secure way to place online orders.”
U.S. consumers can set up a MasterPass account by visiting the MasterPass website or by signing up with a participating bank such as Citibank. MasterPass is a simple, convenient, trusted digital platform for faster, safe shopping at thousands of online merchants. It makes online shopping simple by storing your payment and shipping information in in a single, secure location.
