The online food order and delivery platform, Just Eat partnered with the cryptocurrency payment provider Bitpay to create a brand-new payment scheme that allows its users to order meals across 15,000 restaurants in France to settle in Bitcoin.
Decrypt first reported on September 07, that the British online delivery platform, as an influential player in the food industry in France, supports cryptocurrency payment for its subsidiary. Just Eat aims to explore ways to cater to more customers who engage in their platform, especially in these trying times, where home delivery services are in demand.
The company, on its website, said that users who wanted to avail of its newly created cryptocurrency payment scheme would have to "create a digital wallet by downloading special software or an app." To access this feature, users need to link the said app to Just Eat, and then they can choose the Bitcoin payment option upon checkout that will redirect the users to the Bitpay payment portal. The management noted that they would not charge any customers who chose to settle their dues in Bitcoin. If they make changes and decides to cancel their transactions, the company will refund in Euros through a traditional bank account.
