WePay Powers Instant Payments Processing For TouchBistro Merchants

TouchBistro, the provider of iPad point-of-sale (POS) software for restaurants, has announced the launch of TouchBistro Payments powered by WePay.

Together, the companies will offer instant payment processing, as well as a new, integrated mobile payment device that allows diners to settle their tabs at the table using a tap, chip or traditional magnetic strip.

“With TouchBistro Payments powered by WePay, our restaurants will onboard instantly, so they can start taking payments the moment they unbox TouchBistro,” said Alex Barrotti, founder and CEO of TouchBistro. “Both restaurant owners and customers will experience easier payment processing with the new mobile EMV-compliant payment device for digital, credit and debit card transactions.”

The WePay relationship will enable TouchBistro to market its restaurant POS solution on and other channels.

“TouchBistro shares our mission to take the pain out of payments for business owners, and we're super excited to help make life easier for restaurants and their guests every day,” said Bill Clerico, co-founder and CEO of WePay. “And with the scale of Chase behind us, TouchBistro Payments has amazing potential for long-term growth.”

In addition, restaurants who bank with Chase can easily integrate with TouchBistro, which has helped more than 12,000 eateries improve their business operations with its iPad POS solution.

This collaboration with WePay is just the latest move for TouchBistro. Last May, the company announced it was partnering with Thinking Capital to collaborate for Canada’s restaurant industry to access working capital, with companies able to apply for a loan directly on the TouchBistro platform.

And in 2016, Square and TouchBistro announced a partnership allowing TouchBistro to offer restaurant users access to Square solutions, including its payments infrastructure, hardware and financial services, including Square Capital.
