Customers in France can now pay in Bitcoin when they order from Just Eat France which is an online food ordering company and a part of the UK based Just Eat group. Moreover, the platform announced on its website that it would use Bitpay as their BTC payment provider. There was no official announcement about the collaboration between Just Eat France and Bitpay at all.
The company also published instructions to help users make payments through BTC and said it would not charge its customers with any fees for Bitcoin payments. Further, Just Eat France said that the Bitcoin transactions will be backed by the current price charged by Bitpay and that its customers will be refunded in Euros, if a Bitcoin payment gets cancelled. The company said on its website:
Choose the 'Bitcoin' option when finalizing your order. Then simply click on 'Order'. You will then be redirected to our Bitcoin payment provider, Bitpay. Your Bitcoin wallet will then be opened and a payment request introduced. Then the payment is made. To find out the current Bitcoin exchange rate, visit Bitpay. When payment is successfully completed, you will be redirected to our site. The order will arrive in our system and will be sent directly to the restaurant. We do not charge any fees for Bitcoin payments. To make a Bitcoin payment, you need to create a digital wallet by downloading special software or an app.
Just Eat also stated on its customer service page that the inclusion of BTC as a payment option was part of its expansion plans to have more payment methods much like Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
Currently, Just Eat France caters to a large customer base that allows its users to request for food deliveries from more than 15,000 restaurants in France. Many see this as a move to usher the use of cryptocurrencies amongst the French public. As of press time, no other Just Eat branches, in countries other than France, have announced the Bitcoin payment option for its customers.
