Names in big tech have revolutionized the way we transact with their online payment services.
Whether it be bills, groceries, or meals in restaurants and fast foods, you can pay conveniently with a few taps on your phone.
So, Apple Pay users, don’t be too dejected to know that Burger King doesn’t accept this method for now. The good news is, that other cashless modes of payment are accepted.
These include debit and credit cards. And for mobile payments, you have Google Wallet (formerly Google Pay), PayPal, and the Burger King App.
We’ll discuss these and more, so read to the end and learn more about your options.
Does Burger King Take Apple Pay in Drive-Thru?
Presently, Burger King does not accept Apple Pay as a mode of payment in Drive Thru or in any order options.
For those wanting to go cashless on their transactions, there are other apps and services you may use.
One recommended method is downloading the Burger King app – where you may link your preferred payment methods, including debit or credit cards, and PayPal.
In stores, you may use Google Wallet (formerly Google Pay). Plastic money is always another choice. You may use your debit and credit cards to pay for your orders in physical stores.
Does Burger King Take Apple Pay?
There has been speculation as to why Burger King no longer supports the use of Apple Pay; these include fees and conflicts with services similar to Apple’s.
But one thing is for sure: since 2019, Burger King no longer allows payments via Apple Pay.
But all is not lost to the person one who wants to go cashless. Let’s take a look at your other options:
Burger King App
Here you will see “Add payment method.” Tap that and link your PayPal or chosen credit or debit card: input your PayPal email or credit/debit card details and you’re all set.
The only way to use PayPal is to link it to the Burger King App. Refer to the item above for instructions.
To use this app, you must first have accounts linked to it. Once that’s been set up, you may now make your payment at Burger King.
Stores that accept Google Wallet have a contactless terminal where you can complete your purchase just by holding your phone near it.
You would know your payment was successful when the confirmation message appears.
Credit and Debit Cards
Here’s a simple one. We’ve talked about linking your cards to the app; but of course, you may use your plastic money in physical establishments like stores or drive-thrus.
We’ve all been for contactless and a little extra hygiene since 2020, but let’s face it – nothing beats the OG! Cash is an option in the Burger King App as well.
So whether it’s in-store, in a drive-thru, or a delivery, Burger King accepts good old cash, of course!
What Payment Methods Does The Burger King App Accept?
If you make an order using the Burger King App, you can choose from both cash and cashless payments.
Debit and credit cards may be used two ways: with Burger King App, or used in-store or in drive-thrus.
PayPal users will find that this alternative is available only when linked to the app.
While those who want to use Google Wallet may do so at any Burger King branch with a Google Pay contactless terminal.
Does Burger King Accept PayPal?
Only when linked to the Burger King App can PayPal be used as a mode of payment.
If you haven’t already, download the app from the Play Store (for Android users) or the App Store (for Apple users). Account creation may be done either with your email or Facebook account.
Once you’re done, tap on the profile icon and setup PayPal as your mode of payment. You may now use your PayPal in your orders with Burger King.
How To Pay with Apple Pay At Any Restaurant?
While Burger King currently doesn’t accept Apple Pay, other restaurants and fast food chains do.
Just like its counterpart Google Wallet, Apple Pay may be used via its contactless terminals in partner stores.
If Apple Pay is your choice, it would be best to check beforehand whether your selected store or branch supports it.
This would help unnecessary “oops” moments, and make for a smoother payment experience. Here’s how to transact via Apple Pay:
- Make sure you’ve set up an account and have linked at least one card to your Apple Wallet.
- Open the app and select a card from which you’d like to pay your order. There is usually a default card selected, but if you wish to change this, you’re at liberty to do so.
- Tap the phone against the contactless reader; the word “Done” together with a checkmark will appear. Congratulations! You have now transacted successfully using Apple Pay.
Can You Use Apple Pay At Burger King App?
Burger King has since stopped accepting Apple Pay in 2019. No actual reason was ever announced publicly.
Luckily for cashless payment lovers, there are still other modes of payment available.
Most e-payment methods are compatible with the Burger King App so it’s a great idea to link accounts there.
In fact, PayPal payments work only thru the said app. Credit and debit cards and Google Wallet are options too.
Can You Use Cash App Card At Burger King?
Most Burger King locations accept Cash App. To use it, simply open your account.
Link your chosen credit or debit card and complete the setup. After that’s done, tap on “Pay with Cash App,” and voila! You just did.
A little caveat: it’s always best to check first whether the store you’re going to accepts Cash App to ensure smooth payments and avoid any hiccups.
While ordering at Burger King has but one limitation, there are still a lot of great and easy payment options to choose from.
So feel free to double down on your orders, whether it’s a Flame Grilled Burger, a Bacon Melt, a BK iced coffee, or a BK shake.
You’re sure to get your craving satisfied, whether paid for by tap, swipe or the classic kaching!
