Burger King and PayPal today unveiled a partnership that will see the Burger King Android app updated to support making in-store payments via PayPal. The update will be just for US branches of the fast food franchise, at least at first, but will let customers in those locations buy Whoppers, fries and a drink via their smartphone.
In a blog post, PayPal stated:
"With the BURGER KING App, guests can receive exclusive offers and discounts at BK restaurants, find their closest BK restaurant, and browse the menu and nutritional information. We will be rolling out later this quarter across the United States to all locations, BK restaurant guests will be able to securely pay with PayPal by simply launching the app and when they select to pay with PayPal they will be prompted with a four digit pin to pay.
Burger King announced plans earlier this year to offer customers a way to pay for their meals via their iPhone app. Would you use your smartphone to pay for a Whopper?
