Posted May 2, 2014

MyCheck is a leading checkout app for restaurants and businesses across four major markets across the globe. MyCheck has collaborated with PayPal to allow consumers to pay at the table using the PayPal app. The MyCheck app lets users select a restaurant from a list, check-in, view ordered items, split the bill, add a tip, redeem an offer, receive loyalty card stamps, and quickly check out by hitting the pay button.

“This is a hand-in-glove fit, broadening our reach by collaborating with PayPal to leverage their innovations, but also their large customer base. With MyCheck built into PayPal’s app, mobile app users will now be able to sidestep waiting for the check in full-service restaurants. Whether MyCheck is a standalone offering or built into another app such as PayPal’s, it provides significant benefits to the user. PayPal users enjoy the MyCheck experience without ever leaving the PayPal app; merchants benefit from the exposure of PayPal’s broad reach,” stated MyCheck Co-Founder and CEO Shlomit Kugler.

MyCheck has been running a partnership with PayPal in the U.K. for around 9 months so far. The companies also launched jointed advertising campaigns with the Prezzo and Busaba Eathai restaurant chain, which let to significant adoption and usage of the app.
