Foodservice and Restaurant Payment Processing is Evolving
Remember the days of accepting credit cards in a restaurant? The ever-present knucklebuster was readily available at the server station, waiting to imprint that credit card and provide the customer a faded receipt. And for foodservice operators, invoices with a 30/60 net day notice were left with accounting when the delivery was dropped off.
Today’s restaurant payment solutions have become increasingly sophisticated, from kiosk touch screens in QSRs, where the customer can order – and pay, to mobile tablet solutions for delivery – where payment for a food or liquor order is quick as swiping the corporate card through the mobile payment device – to table-side payment in a sit-down restaurant enabled by a mobile terminal.
