News Worth Toasting. (Literally).
Almost exactly one year ago, INK made a new friend in Tabbedout. Yes, I say friend and not client, because at the end of the day we work with the most amazing companies and people that should be recognized, not only for their campaigns or news announcements, but also for milestones they conquer. The last two months have been busy for Tabbedout, announcing a beta Offers platform for Austin consumers, as well as welcoming a new CEO to the team. On Tuesday we were thrilled to be a part of another noteworthy milestone – a new collaboration with online payments giant PayPal.
In a nutshell, PayPal is now being offered as a payment option through Tabbedout, rolling out just in time for SXSW in select Austin locations, marking the first time PayPal will be accepted at bars and restaurants in the U.S. Customers can enter their secure PayPal username and password or their mobile number + PIN in the Tabbedout app and make a payment directly from their phone — without ever reaching for their wallet (the beauty of Tabbedout exemplified). Because Tabbedout has built strong software integrations with the majority of key point-of-sale systems, merchants can easily add PayPal as a payment option without purchasing additional hardware (it’s a win-win!).
If you live in Austin and have not downloaded Tabbedout – now is the time. Not only will they be celebrating their new partnership this Friday at the newly reopened Belmont (download the app for easy access) but co-founder Rick Orr can be spotted around downtown speaking on a solo panel Tuesday, March 13th, 3:30-4:30, titled Mobile Payments: Transforming Consumer Marketing.
A big congrats to Tabbedout – we can’t wait to see what’s next. See you at happy hour!
