Mr Delivery has partnered with mimoney, allowing consumers to pay for their food and delivery service using virtual cash from their cell phones.
Known as the pioneer of multiple-restaurant delivery in South Africa, Mr Delivery is currently the largest home-delivery operation in the country and hopes to broaden its service through the partnership with Standard Bank’s mimoney.
“We’ve been in partnership with mimoney for over two years, but only really realised the extent to which customers were using it when we had a server failure in December last year and there was an outcry for the service,” says David Chait, director of Mr Delivery. “Payment methods like mimoney are the future of business and to stay ahead of the pack in the home-delivery industry, we need to keep up with the trends.”
Mr Delivery is one of 20 of South Africa’s premier online stores that accept mimoney, which allows users to pay without having to share their credit card details – or even have a credit card.
mimoney is virtual cash on your phone that’s free to load and free to spend. Users can load mimoney vouchers on to their phones at Ster Kinekor self service terminals or box offices, via normal EFT, or via an online purchase.
To pay with mimoney, users select the mimoney payment option at the checkout point of any online store that carries the mimoney logo.
