MCDONALDS serve around 3.5 million meals in the UK a day with customers choosing a number of different ways to pay.
Here we detail whether payment options such as Apple Pay and Paypal are available to you.
Does McDonalds take apple pay and paypal?
Customers at McDonalds will be able to purchase items with Apple Pay.
However, you cannot use PayPal with Apple Pay as Apple Pay does not support it currently.
To use Apple Pay instore, simply make your order and present the cashier with your iOS device.
You can then scan on the contactless reader to pay.
How does apple pay work and can I use it at McDonalds drive through?
Apple Pay allows you to pay for things in shops by holding your iPhone or Apple Watch up to a contactless payment terminal.
You can also use Apple Pay on some websites and in some iOS apps.
In order to use Apple Pay, you need to add your credit or debit card payment details to the Wallet app on your device.
When you are next in shop, all you need to do is hold your iPhone up to the payment terminal with your finger on the Touch ID button of your iPhone.
The same procedure can be applied to McDonald’s drive-thru as it is no different to paying in store.
Make your order through the speaker and then drive to the window where you will be presented with a contactless card reader.
You can then use your iOS device as normal to make a payment using the Apple Pay app.
Can I pay for my McDonalds with my phone?
Yes, you can use your phone as well as order from the McDonalds App – which also supports Apple Pay.
To add Apple Pay to the app :
- Click the ‘More’ tab in the McDonald’s App and then go to ‘Profile’ option.
- Then click Payment Methods where you can then add or remove your payment method details
It means that if a driver is caught using their phone behind the wheel, they could be prosecuted.
Lauren Rae, a dispute resolution and claims associate at Dundee law firm Thorntons, explained: “Put simply, touching a mobile phone whilst the vehicle’s engine is running, could, on a strict interpretation of the law, amount to a criminal offence.
“To avoid falling foul of the law, drivers should switch off their vehicle’s engine and apply the handbrake prior to using their mobile phone at any time.”
