Taliup Payment Solutions has launched a commission-free online ordering platform for restaurants, bars, cafés and hotels to maintain and grow their own independent brands.
The payment technology company says the move will level the playing field for Canada’s underserved and densely populated small and medium-sized foodservice and hospitality industry to compete and thrive against larger brands.
Taliup Express is a POS system focused exclusively on foodservice and hospitality businesses looking for an affordable and competitive option to hefty commission third-party apps.
Businesses pay a flat monthly software fee and the credit card processing fee for the online ordering platform.
Diners have several options: go directly to a restaurant’s website or custom mobile app to place an order, or use Taliup’s directory and order from any restaurant listed for take-out or curbside pickup. Diners may also browse the App Store or Google Play Store and download any app powered by Taliup to order directly.
The platform is easy to use as it enables restaurants and hospitality businesses to own and expand their customer bases, improve order accuracy and overall efficiency, the company said in a press release.
It also offers contactless dine-in and room service options. Customers simply scan a QR code to order, pay and tip from their mobile device, enabling users to feel safe, and at the same time alleviating staffing challenges in the post-pandemic environment. Services include credit card processing terminals for table-side, in-aisle, or on-the-go payments.
Taliup Payment Solutions and Taliup Express are owned by parent company Unity Payments, a veteran in the payment processing industry with more than a decade of experience and a roster of nearly 10,000 small and medium-sized businesses clients across Canada in the local independent foodservice, hospitality and retail category.
