Dynamic Business, 23 January 2020

Mayfair 101 portfolio company, Liven, has announced its partnership with Apple Pay through an in-store invisible payment integration, offering an Uber-like experience in the dining sector.

Liven offers users the opportunities to order food and pay at their tables in restaurants, instead of having to walk all the way to the counter, scan a QR code or wait for a staff to come around.

Shahrooz Chowdhury, Chief Product Officer at Liven, likens the service to the mechanism of the rideshare giant in terms of convenience.

“It’s a wonderful experience to tap once in Liven and then walk out of the restaurant with your phone in your pocket and know that the bill will be taken care of. It’s just like getting out of an Uber and not worrying about payment.”

With the trend of digital wallets on the rise in recent years, tech giants such as Apple, Google and Samsung have developed digital payment systems that are integral to the functionality of their products.

Once featured as Apple’s national app of the day, Liven is the first dining rewards app that offers Apple Pay with an invisible payment integration.

“We hope that our unique integration with Apple Pay helps to give the power back to Aussie business owners by getting more diners through the door and offering them ultimate convenience, rewards, and payment flexibility.”

For Liven, this partnership marks the beginning of its ambitious journey of disrupting the world of payment in 2020.

“With this integration, it’s the first step that allows customers to experience invisible payments in retail at point of sale, which we believe is the consumer future,” Shahrooz said.

“We’re building the future of money where currency has its own memory and intelligence and innovating the in-restaurant dining experience, and it’s only just the beginning.”

Liven is the only Australian startup to qualify for Richard Branson’s Extreme Tech Challenge in 2019. Its service is now available across Australia.
