As online marketing strategies are blooming in the past five years, Paypal is taking another huge step in mobile payments.
McDonaldâ€™s, the worldâ€™s largest hamburger food chain, has partnered with PayPal in conducting a series of tests on receiving payments through PayPal mobile payment system. As much as 30 McDonaldâ€™s restaurants in France are participating in the said research to see how the things with go.
The method of PayPalâ€™s mobile payment system was initially unveiled by McDonaldâ€™s in their latest franchisee conference in Orlando, Florida. Demonstrations in the conference featured a more â€œin-depthâ€ service that would allow customers to order and pay using PayPalâ€™s digital wallet and mobile application. They believed that having this kind of payment will be an added advantage in the future for more convenience to customers especially during rush hours. A Spokeswoman at McDonaldâ€™s confirmed the tests and dry-runs of PayPal mobile payments system in France and that she concluded that if everything goes well, this technology or mode of payment will be available in the next two years for all McDonaldâ€™s restaurants all over the world.
