SAN FRANCISCO, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --, the premier web and mobile food delivery and takeout platform, announced today it will now offer a PayPal payment option on its mobile site. The new, secure mobile device payment method will allow customers to conveniently speed through checkout by paying for Eat24 food services via their personal PayPal account, eliminating the often time-consuming step of fidgeting with wallets and typing in lengthy credit card numbers.


The PayPal payment method has been extremely popular among Eat24 customers since its March launch on the main site. According to Eat24 Co-Founder Nadav Sharon, PayPal payments make up nearly 40 percent of Eat24's total credit card orders. With 35 percent of all orders coming from mobile, it was an easy decision to offer the payment method to users on the mobile site.

"Nobody enjoys typing on a mobile device, especially not with thumbs as big as mine," says Nadav. "With the elimination of typo-induced credit card errors, we anticipate a huge reduction in the number of phones being broken out of anger by offering our customers the opportunity to make fast, secure payments for Eat24 services via PayPal on their mobile devices."

Eat24's mobile site offers all the insanely intuitive features of the main site, allowing users to search for a specific cuisine, restaurant or even a particular dish. It remembers user preferences such as favorite restaurants, payment information and past orders for easy re-ordering. Eat24's mobile site also includes 24/7 live chat and order status support, a unique feature in today's food delivery industry, and a customer favorite.
