Subway teaming up with PayPal


Milford, Conn. -- It’s getting harder and harder to keep track of all the activity in the mobile ordering and mobile payment space. The latest big announcement comes from Subway.

The fast-casual restaurant giant announced on Thursday new updates to its mobile app and website that include more mobile payment options, along with giving customers the ability to order on-the-go. Subway said it is adding PayPal as an option customers can use to pay for meals when they order remotely or pay in-store using the Subway app’s mobile payment feature.

The chain says that with the addition of PayPal later this year, along with offering both Android Pay and Apple Pay as mobile payment options in-store, Subway restaurants will now offer multiple forms of mobile payment at its 27,000-plus U.S. store locations.

Subway’s online ordering option will also feature PayPal’s One Touch checkout feature, which allows eligible customers to pay online or on mobile with a single touch, eliminating the need to enter a PayPal username and password for six months after initial login.

"We look forward to introducing PayPal to our future list of payment options," said Ken Moy, director of global payments & emerging commerce for the Subway brand. "This collaboration will make it quicker and simpler for the 169 million active, global PayPal customers to enjoy a great Subway meal at our more than 27,000 locations in the U.S."
