Enable Standalone Payments

Standalone payments is a technology that enables your guests to order and pay by scanning a QR code or visiting a payment link with their smartphone. It is fast, secure, and efficient. Additionally, standalone payments ensure that your guests keep their credit card and other financial information private. For business owners, standalone payments increase the table turnover rates since customers are able to pay without assistance from the waiter. Businesses may also record higher tips and hence improved staff morale and productivity.


You can receive standalone payments through any and all payment methods available in your store. GonnaOrder supports payments through payabl., Stripe, RMS, Trust Payments, Viva Wallet, JCC, Paymentsense, and Square.

You can choose any of these payment providers for your store. Notice that some of the providers may not be available in your country/region.
