Pizza Express launches iPhone app that lets you pay your bill

Pizza Express has introduced a new iPhone application that lets customers book a table and then pay their restaurant bill using PayPal or a credit/debit card. It’s thought to be the first time a major retailer has used PayPal online payments in physical UK high street shops.

The company is also rolling out free WiFi via The Cloud in all of its 370 restaurants.

Mark Angela, Chief Executive of PizzaExpress, said “We knew there was no point just launching an app for the sake of it, so we waited until we had a system that could genuinely improve our customers’ experience of eating out at PizzaExpress. We believe today’s version does exactly that and we’re looking forward to developing it in the future.”

Customers are given a 12-digit code when they ask for their bill. (This code can be requested at the start of a meal). To pay the bill, customers open the Pizza Express app, select the payment option and enter the code.

Pizza Express App-
Well on first look seems impressive but fails on so many fronts, book your table now try to unbook it or change times, you can't. Menu is static so can't view the menu in a classic way. Book as many tables as you like from your phone, you can, it can’t block you!
Can't pre order or select. No CRM or Loyalty built in. I recently locked out 5 tables in my local for fun, including a table of ten..so if we all do this guess alot of managers will lose their bonus's as they wait for fictitious customers to arrive at the reserved tables. Go on lets all do this for a laugh...
