This app lets you pre-order at independent coffee shops

You might hate that Starbucks is a big corporate, but we bet you love being able to pre-order your Frappuccino in advance.

After all who doesn’t like to skip the queue?

Now though, there’s a new app one the scene — and it’s going to help your favourite independent coffee shops level up.

An example layout of the Order & Pay app.

Order & Pay

We introduced you to iZettle last year — the Stockholm-based company that sells Apple Pay/card readers small shops can actually afford (no banks involved).

Now, along with the recently acquired intellegentpos, it’s launched Order & Pay, letting customers pre-order and pay for products for collection or delivery.

Given that 1,000 new shops across Europe and South America join iZettle every day, your morning coffee routine might have just got a lot smoother.

What’s more, using the Order & Pay app earns you loyalty points for each purchase, which can be redeemed for rewards.

We smell the roasty scent of free coffees ahead.

Beyond coffee

It’s not just small coffee shops that now stand a chance against the competition.

Everyone from stylish boutique fashion brands to your favourite pizza chains can benefit. iZettle has promised will work with each new business to build and design the perfect bespoke app for their needs, which costs a fixed monthly fee of £49 for shop owners.

“We’ve launched Order & Pay to empower our small business customers, allowing them to open up new sales channels, reclaim their neighbourhood and succeed in trading alongside bigger corporations,” says Graeme Horsfall, General Manager at intellegentpos.

“Now, small business owners can increase customer happiness whilst gaining invaluable data which can be used in targeted marketing campaigns.”

Hoorah for increased customer happiness!
