If you’re of the view that life’s too short to fetch your own take-out food, you’ll probably appreciate anything that speeds up the ordering process too – which is why Grubhub and Seamless now offer Apple Pay in the iOS apps. TechCrunch estimates that using Apple Pay instead of a credit card will save you about a minute per order …

While the payment service may be facing some challenges outside the USA as it pushes into new countries like Singapore, uptake is growing rapidly, Apple adding a million new users per week. Transaction volumes have grown by 500% in the past year.

Grubhub says that 60% of its $2.4B annual food sales orders are placed via its mobile apps. Both Grubhub and Seamless are free downloads from iTunes.
