Frankie and Bennys: Pay for your meal via the web

Whenever I see a restaurant say that you can pay on mobile, I always check it out, mostly so I can bemoan the fact that you need to use an app. Imagine my surprise when the QR code lead to a web-based payments flow..... and it worked.

Awesome work Frankie and Benny's!

A QR code to a mobile app?
Pay on mobile QR Code
Select your restaurant
Check your bill
Select your payment

At this point, I did select Google Pay, but it didn't work (email internally sent!)

Payment selected
Payment processed

Rather awesome stuff, and it was roughly about a minute end to end.

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
