Google Pay Singapore Adds Food Discovery & Ordering To App

Tuesday, April 28th, 2020

Google Pay supports Singapore food establishments amid the nation’s COVID-19 outbreak – by offering a free menu discovery feature for food establishments; and enabling patrons to discover eateries by cuisine, browse menus and contact merchants to place orders from over 250 eateries.

Discover and order food from F&B establishments in Singapore while staying home during Circuit Breaker.

To help Singaporeans and the local food services industry during the circuit breaker period, Google has launched a new feature to discover food pick-up and delivery options on the new Google Pay Singapore app.

“Quick food pick-ups and door-to-door deliveries are now a necessity, as Singaporeans stay home during this critical period. Like several others in Singapore, we too were sharing food menus among family and friends. So we thought, what if we could scale this and make this easier for consumers and restaurants? We rallied our employees to come together quickly and discussed ways in which we could offer a solution,” said Patrick Teo, Director of Engineering for Payments and Engineering Site Lead at Google Singapore.

Many food establishments had to pause their dine-in services and rely on informal methods to share their menu and publicise their pick-up or delivery options.

Developed specifically for Singapore, this new menu discovery experience brings a variety of restaurants, coffee shops and hawker stalls online starting with over 100 businesses in addition to existing restaurants like Burger King, Canadian Pizza, Cedele, Da Paolo Group, The Daily Cut and Tuk Tuk Cha, giving patrons over 250 eateries to order from.

With the new Menu Discovery feature, Singaporeans will now be able to get family meals from Kok Sen, O Banh Mi, and Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha or order restaurant-style spreads at home from Blue Ginger, O.BBa BBQ Jjajang and NUDE Seafood.

With the new menu discovery feature, customers can browse menus, select items, and contact the food establishment to place their order and pay.

Depending on the eatery, customers can choose to pick up their order or have it delivered.
