300 bars and pubs sign up to smartphone payments in Australia

Apple and Android smartphones will be used across supported bars and pubs to manage and pay the bill

Settling the bill across 300 Australian bars and pubs will become a lot easier following the adoption of a smartphone app, called Clipp.

Patrons can use the app on their smartphones to open, view, share and pay the bar tab or restaurant bill across 300 venues owned by the Australian Leisure and Hospitality (AHL) Group.

Using smartphones to manage the bill should improve how quickly staff can tend to customers and make paying for bills more secure, said Greg Taylor, co-founder and COO of Clipp.

“A user’s credit card details are stored securely within the app, so they no longer have to worry about their credit card which is sitting behind the bar. They can continue to enjoy their night out,” said Taylor.

The application includes several features, such as a bar locator, group tab sharing, a built-in tipping functionality and the ability to review bars.

The deal with AHL doubles the number of venues supporting Clipp to 600. The Clipp application is available as a free download on Android and iOS smartphones.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
