More Details Regarding The Announcement
According to some of the details available on the firm’s official website, it now appears as though Lieferando will be allowing customers to pay for their meals using a host of novel ways including:
- Credit/Debit cards
If that wasn't enough, it is also worth mentioning that when facilitating a transaction using Bitcoin, customers will not incur any peripheral charges such as VAT, GST. This is especially advantageous when considering the fact that users have to pay a flat 6% extra charge when making payments using their PayPal accounts or credit cards.
Also, for those of our readers who might be interested in learning more about Lieferando, the company is owned and operated wholly by Takeaway.com— one of the world’s most prominent and established food ordering websites that started accepting BTC payments all the way back in mid-2017.
Last but not least, the folks over at Lieferando recently took to Twitter to announce the winner of the their “Best Restaurant Award”. In a surprising turn of events, out of the 1,231 restaurants that were reviewed and rated, it was a pizza parlour that took home the coveted trophy.
Lieferando officials have confirmed that their recent foray into the crypto market has been successful and that customers living in countries like the Netherlands, Austria, and Poland have really appreciated the firm’s decision to make BTC payments a reality.
