Payper Technologies, a Manchester-based start-up, is bringing new pay-at-table technology to the restaurant industry. The technology uses graphene antennas which are printed on paper to allow customers to pay their bill by using their existing Apple Pay or Google Pay. The process requires no app and can be completed in under five seconds.
Co-founder Renate Kalnina said: "Many of us have been left waiting to pay the restaurant bill for 20, 30 or even 40 minutes whilst operators and staff are struggling with PDQ terminal connectivity and shortages.
"Our solution for restaurants consists of replacing the roll of paper inside the printer with a roll of our Paydots. Once a receipt is printed and taken to the table, the customers can pay at their leisure without requiring a card machine; thus reducing cross-contamination as well as limiting waiting staff time spent per table.
"This solution also brings commercial benefits from increased table turnover. No doubt the social distancing measures will reduce the available tables per restaurant, so this solution can achieve faster table turnarounds by reducing the need to wait around for card terminals."
Payper aims to trial its product at Manchester and North West restaurants.
"We understand that most of the industry is currently on furlough however, now is the best time to engage and embrace innovative technologies since government guidelines allow employees to take part in training while on furlough", Kalnina added.
