‘Eat now, pay later’ app, payo, launches in Melbourne bars and restaurants

The app aims to help support Melbourne’s struggling hospitality industry.

After successfully launching in Brisbane in March, dining-focused ‘buy now, pay later’ (BNPL) app, payo, is rolling out in Melbourne.

The app will allow diners to split their bill across four equal, interest-free fortnightly payments, in an aim to boost the hospitality industry which is struggling as a result of Melbourne’s continuous lockdowns.

Users will be rewarded for dining at selected  partnering restaurants with exclusive, limited offers.

The likes of Morris Jones, Asian Beer Cafe, The Grace Darling Hotel, Vegie Mum, and Bomba Bar are now offering payo.

“The industry has been through a rough time with restaurant closures and simultaneously, a drop in discretionary spending. By unlocking the BNPL offering within the restaurant space, we hope payo can be a part of the rebuild solution by driving increased traffic into restaurants, said payo Co-founder and CEO, Taf Chiwanza.

“We want to encourage customers to enjoy unique dining experiences by giving users the opportunity to better manage their cashflow and still enjoy themselves, so they don’t miss out these moments.”
