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.
