QSRWeb.com reports that following the announcement that Whataburger has added MasterCard PayPass at its U.S. locations, MasterCard Worldwide has announced that Tim Hortons is now accepting MasterCard PayPass at its more than 400 U.S. locations.
In addition to accepting traditional magnetic-stripe cards, Tim Hortons now enables its U.S. customers to make their purchases by simply tapping their MasterCard PayPass card or device at checkout, for faster transactions, greater payment flexibility and less time spent waiting in line. Tim Hortons first began accepting MasterCard PayPass in many of its 3,000 stores in Canada.
With MasterCard PayPass, Tim Hortons customers simply tap their PayPass-enabled MasterCard card or device on a PayPass-accepting reader at check-out. MasterCard PayPass also does not require customers to sign receipts for purchases under $25, further speeding up the transaction.
“Quick-service restaurants like Tim Hortons are the ideal environment for MasterCard PayPass because many of the customers they cater to are busy and on the go,” said Cathleen Conforti, senior vice president, Global PayPass, MasterCard Worldwide. “By accepting MasterCard PayPass, Tim Hortons can help shorten lines, improve customer satisfaction, and meet the growing demand of consumers for fast, flexible payment options that are more convenient than cash or check.”
