McDonald’s India has partnered with a one-tap checkout network solutions provider Simpl to enhance the online checkout experience of its customers.
The partnership will allow customers using McDelivery platforms to use Simpl’s 1-tap pay functionality when placing orders.
Targeted mainly at McDonald’s in India’s western and southern regions, the latest collaboration comes in response to the increasing number of online orders placed by McDonald’s customers.
In these two regions, the fast food chain’s mobile app and McDelivery app have received nearly 24 million downloads and millions of new registered customers.
McDonald’s India chief marketing officer Arvind R P said: “At McDonald’s India, we are committed to offering our customers the best experience across touchpoints.
“By integrating Simpl’s technology into our McDelivery platform, we are enabling millions of customers to enjoy the one-tap checkout experience and their favourite McDonald’s meals in no time.”
