Pay with OpenTable: Mobile Payments National Expansion Kicks Off in New York City

After a successful mobile payment pilot program in San Francisco, we are pleased to announce that the pay with OpenTable feature is expanding nationally. In addition to the New York City launch, mobile payments will be introduced in 18 additional cities before the year’s end. We also plan to further expand the presence of payments in San Francisco.

To pay with OpenTable, make sure you are using the latest version of the OpenTable iPhone app. Diners who book a participating restaurant can add a credit card, which enables them to view and pay their check at participating restaurants with a few taps. It’s that easy; there’s no separate app to download, no table number to enter, and no scanning or barcodes involved. Diners who settle their check via the OpenTable app can simply get up and go whenever they’re ready!

Pay Your Check with OpenTable Mobile: Pilot Payment Program Launches in San Francisco

First, OpenTable made it simple to book a restaurant reservation at any time of day or night with just a few clicks. Now, we’re pleased to announce that it will soon be just as easy to pay for your meal. Rather than waiting for a check or, worse yet, being late for the theater, with the new OpenTable payments feature, you will be able to tap to pay – and be on your way.

OpenTable mobile payments are currently being tested by diners at select restaurants in San Francisco. Over the next few weeks, we will be adding more diners to the test program and will provide you a way to request access. If you receive an email invitation to be part of our pilot program, you can get started by making a reservation at a participating restaurant. Simply add a credit card in the OpenTable iPhone app before your meal and you’ll be able to view and pay your check. There’s no scanning or bar codes involved.

If you’re participating in the pilot program, you will receive an email requesting feedback about the app and your experiences with it. For those of you who are particularly passionate about the app, the experience, or mobile technology in general, we’ll also be offering the option to join us for in-person Q+A discussions at our headquarters in San Francisco.

We thank you for your participation as we bring our payments feature one step closer to a broader launch. Your honesty and insights are not just vital to its refinement – they are greatly appreciated.
