Sydney start-up Clipp expands mobile payment venues to more than 600

ClippBar tab app Clipp has doubled its number of venues to more than 600 as the ability to pay for goods on mobile devices continues to rise.

The Australian Leisure & Hospitality (ALH) Group has begun to use the Sydney start-up’s technology in a move that will allow drinkers at its 300 pubs to pay for drinks and and food without the need for cards or cash.

Clipp co-founder and chief operating officer Greg Taylor described itself as a “convenience creator”.

“Staff at venues aren’t faced with the challenge of chasing a plastic card amongst a crowded bar and can instead focus on serving customers faster and more efficiently, which will improve the overall experience,” he said.

ALH Group chief executive Bruce Mathieson said the decision to integrate Clipp was logical “given the benefits the technology provided to both venues and customers”.

“From a business perspective, having our venues integrated with Clipp has already improved productivity in our venues,” he said. “Staff behind the bar are spending less time handling card transactions and instead are able to serve customers faster and more efficiently.”
