McDonald’s selects Ingenico for payments
Written by Peter Walker
McDonald’s, along with its franchisees in the UK and Ireland, has selected Ingenico Group to handle the growth in demand for cashless transactions for the next five years.
The fast food giant cited capacity, reliability, performance and security as the drivers for its ‘Next Generation Cashless Solution’.
Customers can currently pay cashlessly via the McDonald’s Click and Collect app, through in-restaurant self-service order screens, or when using a Drive Thru.
Ingenico worked closely with McDonald’s and its franchisees - who make up over 80 per cent of the brand’s footprint - to deploy the technology to all its restaurants across the UK and Ireland, along with implementing Apple Pay and Google Pay options.
Jon Braithwaite, director of IT for McDonald’s, said: “We believe that this payment solution is one of the most advanced in the retail sector and is a critical component to delivering excellent experience for our customers.”
