Viableware announced that PayPal payments will be accepted on the RAIL payment platform, a mobile payment device that enables full-service restaurants to securely accept various forms of payment at the table.
The integration expands PayPal's presence in the dining vertical and will enable the payment service on all RAIL devices expected to be implemented by more than 20 full-service restaurant brands within the next year, according to a news release. New Orleans restaurant, Tableau, will be the first live implementation of the combined payment technologies.
Viableware's RAIL is a handheld device designed to replicate the look and feel of the traditional bill presentation folder used at most full-service restaurants. RAIL allows guests to securely self-swipe credit or debit cards, auto-calculate the tip, split the bill multiple ways, pay-by-item and direct-email receipts.
The RAIL payment platform seamlessly integrates with leading restaurant POS systems from MICROS, NCR Aloha, and Dinerware and has been certified to the security standards of 11 payment processors.
"At PayPal, we are always looking for new ways to create a seamless experience for both our consumers and merchants," said Don Kingsborough, Pay Pal VP of Retail. "Collaborating with an innovator such as Viableware allows us to bring added convenience to the more than 400,000 full service restaurants in the United States, providing these restaurants with new payment options and, in turn, their customers increased choice and flexibility."
