Perkwave Enables Pay-at-Table Transactions with Apple Pay
Last month, in tandem with the release of Apple Pay, our partner Harbortouch, a POS systems provider, launched their new mobile application, Perkwave. This exciting new app creates a solution for restaurants that wish to accept Apple Pay. Since restaurants aren’t typically set up to take advantage of in-person NFC transactions with Apple Pay, Perkwave offers a unique way for customers to pay with Apple Pay right from their table.
Perkwave, which is built using the PassMarket platform, allows customers at over 10,000 restaurants across the country to pay their check at the table by scanning a QR code printed on their receipt. Once they scan the code, a virtual copy of their receipt appears in the app and allows them to add a tip and finalize the payment process using Apple Pay. The payment then automatically syncs with the Harbortouch POS system and alerts the wait staff that the bill has been paid. In addition to the benefits of Apple Pay, Perkwave offers loyalty functionality so that each time a consumer uses Perkwave to pay for a meal, they simultaneously earn points towards rewards.
With this new system, customers no longer have to wait for the waiter to take their credit card, swipe it, and then bring it back. Instead, they can pay quickly and leave when they please. The ease, efficiency and convenience of the system is exciting for consumers and merchants alike.
The app has been live for the past month in beta with a handful of Harbortouch merchants, and they expect a full launch of the app in the next couple of weeks. Perkwave is already revolutionizing new mobile payment technology, and certainly is helping usher in a new era of how people pay.
