Square Pickup Lets You Order Food to Go Without Calling in

 |  |  |  February 26, 2014


I’m sure that you have been sitting in the office or at home, at some point and decided to order up some take out for lunch. The problem with many eateries at lunch time is that they are so busy you end up waiting forever for someone to pick up the phone, only to be greeted by a harried worker that often messes up your order. That’s where Square Pickup comes in.

Square Pickup is an app that is currently in development for iOS and Android devices. The app allows any restaurant that participates in Square payments to enable their entire menu to be ordered and paid for directly from the app. The upside for the restaurant is that no one has to take an order. The upside for the person ordering is that they can choose what they want and pay without having to wait for someone to pick up the phone. The orderer also doesn’t have to wait to checkout since they pay with the app, all they need to do is get their bag and walk out.

There are other services out there that offer similar capabilities – like GrubHub – but so many restaurants are already using Square for payments now that this could be a good alternative.

The app is currently in a limited preview mode, so you’ll have to wait before you can use it unless you’re fortunate enough to have received an invitation code.
