OpenTable introduced a new feature in San Francisco earlier this year that allowed users to pay the bill right on their phones. The pilot seems to have done well, because OpenTable announced on Monday that it’s expanding that option to its users in 20 new cities around the United States. The newest market is New York City and OpenTable declined to name the other new markets.
Pay with OpenTable isn’t accepted everywhere, but you’ll know where it’s an option before you book a reservation so long as you have the most recent iOS application installed. Once you’ve chosen a supported restaurant, just enter in the credit card details that you plan to use and, when you’re ready to get up and leave the restaurant, simply pay your bill right from the application. “There’s no separate app to download, no table number to enter, and no scanning or barcodes involved,” OpenTable explained on Monday. “Diners who settle their check via the OpenTable app can simply get up and go whenever they’re ready!”
We quickly checked out the supported restaurants in New York City, and it looks like about 50 or so are already on board to get started. The only requirement right now is that you’re using an iPhone, though OpenTable says Android users should “stay tuned.”
