PayPal Serves Up Mobile Payments With Pizza Express

Gigaom.com reports, “We all crave a good meal with friends at the local pizzeria now and then. But after devouring a couple of meat lover specials, every minute spent waving a hand in the air miming ‘check please,’— let alone waiting for a server to take for your credit card, swipe it, and bring it back—can seem like an eternity. Customers of a British restaurant chain with iPhones in their pockets and a registered PayPal account need never suffer the interminable wait again. Starting today, diners at all 370 Pizza Express restaurants will be able to use the chain’s iPhone app to pay for their meals at the table via PayPal in “less than a minute.” No wait-staff intervention needed.”
