The digital payment platform Freecharge has announced a partnership with Café Coffee Day (CCD). Under this partnership, people can pay at 1,420 CCD outlets in 187 cities using their Freecharge wallet. Customers can use their mobile numbers to pay and complete the transaction with the patented On-The-Go-Pin. The transaction would only take less than 10 seconds, claims Freecharge.
The On-The-Go-Pin are developed with an intention of speeding up transactions, especially in Quick Serving Restaurants (QSRs).
“We are happy to partner with CCD a favourite coffee shop and hangout place among the youth of country. At Freecharge, our endeavour is to influence the daily payment habits of consumers and offer an assortment of merchants to help them move away from cash. With CCD, we will expand Freecharge’s digital payment ecosystem to include new users and expand our wallet reach to 187 cities including smaller towns like Dhanbad, Agartala, Jamshedpur, Meerut, Jabalpur, Nellore, Nalgonda, Kurukeshtra, Hubli, Mangalore etc,” Govind Rajan, Chief Operating Officer, Freecharge said.
Freecharge had already made a similar partnership with McDonalds earlier this year. The Freecharge wallet will go live across all CCD outlets by 9th May.
