Why should I use Glance Pay?

Glance Pay is perfect for any user or business owner who is tired of the legacy approach to paying bills and checking out: that old routine of asking for the bill, waiting for it, waiting for the credit card machine, and waiting for it to connect and process the payment, before waiting all over again as groups split their bills and servers tap their toes.

With Glance Pay, users can get started as soon as the bill is in their hands; simply take a picture of the bill, confirm the amount you’re paying and your preferred tipping option, and leave at your leisure. The platform allows you to digitally store your receipts and track expenses, while automatically earning loyalty points towards exclusive rewards every time you pay.

Is there a charge for using the app?

No charge! It's free as a bird.

Does it work with all credit cards?

All major credit cards are accepted, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

What's preventing people from pretending to pay and then just leaving?

Don’t worry! Servers know that Glance Pay users are dining and dashing the same way they always have. Businesses receive notification of your payment without having to approach the table. However, if it feels a bit strange for you at first, when you receive your bill let your server know you will be paying with Glance Pay, just like you would inform them if paying by credit card.

How do I earn and redeem rewards?

Earning rewards with Glance, and cashing them in for exclusive discounts, is as simple as using the app. With every transaction you make at a Glance-partnered business, loyalty points are automatically added to your account, and once you’ve earned your cash-back reward, it is automatically applied to your bill. No expiry date, no coupons to keep track of, and no way to miss out on the rewards you’ve earned!
