Swiff Friday launched a new mobile payment service with Thailand's AEON Thana Sinsap Public Company Ltd. and McDonald's for McDelivery 1711, according to a press release.
Mobile provider Swiff said its new mobile point-of-sale product will enable customers using McDelivery 1711 to pay with a credit card when their orders are delivered to them, according to the statement. Swiff said this is the first time in Thailand a global quick service restaurant chain is using mPOS when they deliver the orders to a customer's doorstep.
"Since the launch of AEON Easy Pay built on Swiff's mPOS platform last August, we have seen a growing number of consumers show preference for mobile payments," Yasuhiko Kondo, managing director of AEON, said in a statement. "We are pleased that McDonald's is introducing the first mobile credit card payment solution for their popular McDelivery 1711. Our goal is to become one of Thailand's major players for mobile point-of-sale services and our partnership with McDonald's is the latest step in our journey."
Home-delivery services across the globe face increasing demands to accept card payments instead of cash, Swiff said in a statement.
"The payments industry is continuously looking for options to address the need to replace cash on delivery. With our technology, companies can enhance mobility, payments, convenience and productivity improvements in their infrastructure and operations," Suvicha Nalita, country manager of Thailand for Swiff, said in a statement.
Swiff said its technology enables secure and patent-pending two-factor authentication, which permits mobile tracking, user authorization and fraud prevention. Swiff's suite of solutions is EMV Level 2 certified and accommodates chip-and-PIN, chip-and-signature and swipe-and-sign payment methods, the company said in a statement.
