According to PayPal, more than 2,000 Australian restaurants and cafes let customers use a phone app to order coffees or take-away meals.
The system, which uses the PayPal phone app, lets customers pick coffee or take-away food faster, by ordering ahead on their phone, then bypassing queues when they arrive at the cafe.
PayPal announced its Order Ahead feature earlier this year, with initial support from Beat the Q, EatNow and OrderMate. Customer must "check in" to a store before they arrive, which lets the person behind the counter check their photo on their screen. It also means customers don't need to fiddle with cash at the counter.
A new update to the PayPal phone app for Android and iOS exposes the Order Ahead function in the Shop section, which identifies nearby retailers that accept PayPal payments.
