SK Planet launches free app for pre-ordering beverages
SK Planet, SK Telecom’s mobile platform affiliate, yesterday launched Syrup Order, which allows users to order and pay in advance at coffee shops near them without having to wait at the store.
The company said the Syrup Order app shows users all affiliated shops within a 500-meter (546-yard) radius, along with detailed menus so that users can make orders and mobile payments before they arrive. Participating shops include Cafe Droptop and Ediya Coffee.
It also shows the customer the location of the store on a map, along with directions. Users can make payments with credit cards on their phone, and with PayPin, SK Planet’s mobile payment service.
When the food or drink is ready, a pickup message is sent to the customer’s phone. SK Planet said the app will be particularly useful when shops are crowded at lunchtime.
The free app can be downloaded from the T Store and Google Play Store. The iOS version will launch soon, the company said.
