Burger King (NYSE:BKW) announced that it will soon allow U.S. customers to pay for their meals using PayPal. Through a partnership with Tillster to develop the Burger King app for iOS and Android, the option is meant to offer customers more convenience and savings.
Using the Burger King app, guests can receive exclusive offers and discounts at the fast-food restaurant chain. The app can also be used to browse the menu and look up nutritional information. Simply by launching the app, a customer can select to pay with PayPal and then be prompted with a four digit pin to purchase.
PayPal also announced on its blog it will integrate payment buttons into the GoDaddy Online Store, reported TechCrunch. The PayPal Express Checkout button will now be pre-installed with each Online Store integration.
Finally, PayPal confirmed its Pay After Delivery service is being used by millions of customers. The service allows PayPal to front all immediate costs to a merchant and gives shoppers up to 14 days to complete the transaction.
"We want people to have the same level of confidence whether they shop online or in store, which is why we have relationships with both buyers and sellers, enabling shoppers to buy things and pay later, while ensuring that merchants get paid immediately," PayPal wrote in the post.
The program will roll out nationally later this quarter.
In September, eBay (NASDQ:EBAY) announced plans to spin off its PayPal unit into a separate publicly traded company in the second half of 2015. Activist hedge fund magnate Carl Icahn demanded the divesture around nine months ago, but the idea was originally rejected by eBay's board and president, CEO John Donahoe.
