The online food ordering giant Just Eat has begun accepting cryptocurrencies for over 15,000 restaurants in France. The Just Eat group presently operates in 13 countries. Its website for France has recently undergone a significant makeover after the Just Eat Plc’s acquisition by Takeaway.com. The latter has been accepting bitcoin for quite some time. The Just Eat website for France has now expanded the payment methods to cryptocurrencies as well. Crypto adoption has increased significantly worldwide among the ongoing global pandemic.
Just Eat expands payment methods to bitcoin, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
The Just Eat website for France details that the payment methods have been expanded with the site makeover. It now includes Apple Pay, Google Pay (via the Just Eat app), and bitcoin and other payment methods if offered by restaurants (credit card, Paypal, cash, checks, or meal vouchers). To pay with bitcoin or other supported cryptocurrencies, a user has to choose the “Bitcoin” option when placing the order. After clicking “order,” the user will be transferred to the Bitpay website to choose from a long list of wallets and exchanges, reported Saumil Kohli.
Just Eat in France also supports several other cryptocurrencies.
A user on Just Eat can also choose from a number of cryptocurrencies supported by Bitpay: BTC, BCH, ETH, GUSD, USDC, PAX, BUSD, and XRP. After a user has chosen the wallet or exchange, he will be prompted to pick the cryptocurrency of his choice to pay by scanning a QR code. When the user successfully completes the payment, he is redirected back to the Just Eat website. The website does not charge any fees for bitcoin payments. The Just Eat group was founded in 2001, and it has over 240,000 restaurant partners, according to the company’s December 2019 presentation. The company operates in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, Ireland, Norway, Spain, and several other countries.
