Following a series of recent website upgrades, French customers of the popular food delivery service Just Eat were provided with a new payment option for their orders – the leading cryptocurrency Bitcoin.
Since the beginning of global lockdown, restrictions imposed on physical locations have resulted in an increased demand for home delivery services. Companies like Amazon have reported record sales whilst many businesses heavily dependent on face-to-face revenue have struggled.
This growing digital trend is paralleled by the decline of physical cash and public calls for greater safety precautions within finance. Cryptocurrencies provide the best alternative to fulfil this vacant role.

Just Eat France have chosen to partner with Bitpay as their payment provider, directing customers to view the exchanges site to monitor the price of Bitcoin.
The website shares details to customers on their new payment method:
“Choose the ‘Bitcoin’ option when you finalise your order. You will be redirected to Bitpay, our Bitcoin payment provider. Your Bitcoin wallet will be opened and a payment request will be made. Then the payment is processed.”
“We do not charge any fees for Bitcoin payments. To make a Bitcoin payment, you need to create a digital wallet by downloading special software or an app.”
