Pepper’s pay at table: Waiting for the restaurant bill is a thing of the past...

November 10, 2022

Introducing the launch of Pay at table - the fastest way to split and pay - powered by Pepper. Skip the app download and simply scan a QR code; encouraging repeat business and allowing customers to have everything they need to pay the check at their fingertips.

22% of customers do not have the patience to wait for the bill, even if it’s for just 5 or 10 minutes, according to a study conducted by YouGov.

For almost a third of customers, waiting for the bill is the most frustrating part of a meal (we get it!) 36% said that they would not hesitate to complain if they are kept waiting more than 10 minutes to pay their bill. If customer satisfaction is jeopardised, there could be some negative consequences for your restaurant...

Firstly, it’s likely that customers won’t return back to your venue, even if the rest of their experience was great - customers just want to be able to pay quickly and leave once they’re ready, and if they can’t do that, they may choose to go elsewhere.

You can also say goodbye to any extra tips, as it’s been shown that inpatient and frustrated customers will skip on showing their appreciation if they end their meal with a wait.

Whilst 15% will always leave a tip in addition to service charge, 18% admit to always skipping the tip if they are not satisfied.
