Introducing Online Payments
for Restaurants

Restaurant owners can now accept credit card payments for online orders

Product launch January 25th, 2015

Bucharest, January 25th, 2015: GloriaFood released today the online payments feature, enabling restaurants to accept credit card payments for online orders.

Last year, GloriaFood became the first real time food ordering platform with a freemium business model. A do-it-yourself concept, where restaurants use an online dashboard to self-manage their profile and use a smartphone app to accept online orders.

This is the first premium feature being released by GloriaFood. “We know that restaurants need online payments and we are happy to finally have this feature available. We’ve put a lot of focus in creating a smooth and pleasant ordering experience, one that makes clients order again and again.” said Oliver Auerbach, Founder and CEO of GloriaFood.

“We don’t touch the money. They go directly into the restaurant’s account”

Today, the platform supports the most popular credit card processors that operate in a wide range of countries (US, Canada, UK, Australia, most European countries, etc.). The restaurant owner only needs to provide the merchant account. The role of the GloriaFood platform is to connect to the payment gateway to initiate the transfer. The money are then sent from the customer directly into the merchant account. “We don’t touch the money. They go directly into the restaurant’s account, not passing through us”, explained Oliver Auerbach.

The number of orders doesn’t increase the charges

When it comes to costs, the payment gateway charges their typical fee per transaction, while GloriaFood charges a fixed monthly fee. “Restaurants that find value in online payments are invited to activate this feature for a flat monthly fee. We’re not taking other commissions, regardless of the number of orders”, said the CEO of GloriaFood.
