Paytm Wants Their QR Code Based Menu Across All Restaurants; Talks On With 10 State Governments
Social distancing is the way forward now, and Paytm has realised this very clearly.
In order to encourage social distancing, and promote safe outing of all food lovers at restaurants, Paytm has created their unique QR code based menu and ordering system.
And now, they want this touch-free mode of checking out menus at restaurants to be implemented across all the restaurants and eateries in India.
Infarct, talks are already on with 10 state Governments for the same.
Paytm’s New QR Code Based Menu, Ordering
Paytm has developed a new QR code menu and food ordering feature, for all restaurants.
This is how it will work:
- Visitor enters a restaurant
- The waiter shows them a QR code, which the visitor scans via their Paytm app
- The visitor is able to see the menu, all food dishes being offered, and the price
- The visitor makes the order, makes the payment via Paytm app itself
- The food is served
This ensures zero contact with either the menu card or the waiter, or card machine. Everything goes digital, and with social distancing.
Nikhil Saigal, Vice President Paytm said, “We strongly believe that our contactless food ordering solution would not only help establishments get back to business but also save lives as the core idea of this innovative product is based on maintaining social distancing,”
Paytm Wants To Roll Out This Feature Across India
Paytm has announced that they will roll out this QR code menu and food ordering feature across 100,000 restaurants in the initial phase.
Gradually, it will be expanded and rolled out for other restaurants as well.
Infact, Paytm wants that their QR code based menu and food ordering becomes “standard operating procedure for opening food establishments,”
They are in talks with atleast 10 State Governments in India, to make it happen.
Since most of the restaurants and eateries will be opened from June 8th across non-containement zones, Paytm wants their QR code based menus to become accessible across most of the outlets.
Restaurants can embed their own branding and logo into the QR code, and use that as a white-label product as well. It seems there will be some paid options for this.
We are awaiting more clarity. Stay tuned!
