Pay for your meals with cellphones

White-collar employees in Jing’an District will be able to order and pay for their meals from nearby restaurants with their mobile phones after the district announced plans in building China’s first mobile payment street.

The district government yesterday officially launched the Mobile Payment Pilot Street on Nanjing Road W. and said all the district’s restaurants and stores will be covered by June next year.

The employees will have a chip installed in their mobile phones for the payment.

Some 60 percent of the 200 restaurants and stores have already installed equipment for the mobile payment that customers can pay by waving their smartphones in front of the machines in the office buildings.
