New SUBWAY® App Showcases Value of PayPal and Paydiant Collaboration
It’s only been a short while since Paydiant joined the PayPal family, but it’s fitting that one of the first combined outcomes of the acquisition is the signing of a merchant that Paydiant has long been working with — Subway. Leveraging our mobile wallet platform, the Paydiant team helped to build the new SUBWAY® App, which was released in early 2015. Today, we are excited to share that PayPal will be integrated as a payment option later this year in more than 27,000 US locations.
Since we joined PayPal, it has been such a fast and seamless transition because of our shared vision: to empower merchants with one of the leading mobile payment technologies and to drive shopper engagement through loyalty, offers and rewards, regardless of which mobile phone or platform people chose to use.
To pay in-store or as part of a mobile order, Subway guests will simply select the “PayPal” option, enabling guests to utilize any smartphone or operating system (Android or iOS) to conduct their transaction. PayPal will also be integrated as a payment choice for online orders onorder.subway.com. We’re also enabling PayPal’s One Touch™ checkout experience – the faster, easier way to pay — for eligible consumers checking out online and on mobile. With One Touch, consumers that have opted-in can pay in a single touch without having to type in their PayPal usernames or passwords after initial log-in for 6 months.
Together with PayPal, we look forward to helping many more merchants create their own branded wallets to help accelerate mobile in-store payments and drive sales and customer loyalty.
