TouchBistro, iZettle partner on restaurant payment services
TouchBistro, an iPad point-of-sale product for restaurants in 35 countries, has partnered with mobile POS provider iZettle to give restaurants the ability to accept card and contactless payments as part of a suite of services, according to a press release.
Servers use the TouchBistro app to take customer orders either tableside or while patrons are waiting in line, and instantly transmits them to the kitchen or bar. Bills are automatically calculated and split according to patrons' requests. With iZettle integration, bills totaled by TouchBistro are automatically processed using the iZettle iPad chip-and-PIN or contactless card readers.
"Our commitment to our customers is to continue innovating by adding new features and support for technologies that address both their current and future needs," said Alex Barrotti, CEO and founder of TouchBistro. "iZettle offers unbeatable payment processing technology and service in Europe, and we are proud to partner with them to offer restaurants a seamless integration as we broaden our reach across the continent."
The iZettle service was first launched in Sweden in the summer of 2011 and is now available to individuals and small businesses across Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, France, Mexico and Brazil.
New restaurants that sign up for iZettle can choose to receive a "Card Reader Lite" or "Card Reader Pro Contactless" for free.
