Mobile order and pay is one of the best features of the Starbucks mobile app, as it allows you to order, pay and skip the line at your local Starbucks location. Many love this feature as it users get to bypass lines in stores during peak periods.
Now, McDonald’s has announced it is set to bring the same mobile order and pay to customers in the U.S., along with Canada and more, according to a statement by the company sent to Mashable:
McDonald’s will start offering pay-by-phone beginning next year, in 20,000 to 25,000 restaurants across the U.S. and in countries such as Canada, Australia, the UK and France. Other new options will include pay kiosks at restaurants.
Most McDonald’s Canada locations have new pay kiosks already, which accept Apple Pay. The company says most of these kiosks are located in Europe though, approximately 7,000 of them.
Becca Hary, a McDonald’s spokeswoman, told Mashable “Providing our customers with choice and convenience is an important part of the restaurant experience at McDonald’s.”
Other places with mobile order and pay include Chipotle locations in the U.S. and Canada, allowing users to bypass lines.
If you’re addicted to McDonald’s, mobile order and pay is going to change your life (or ruin it). There’s no better feeling than bypassing the massive line ups at Starbucks with mobile orders. Some of the stares you get from those waiting it out in line are priceless.
