Just Eat, a major UK online food ordering and delivery platform operating in 13 countries, has added cryptocurrency payment support for its French subsidiary.

The company has partnered with cryptocurrency payment provider Bitpay to allow users to pay in Bitcoin (BTC). Just Eat users will now be able to order food from more than 15,000 restaurants in France by paying one of these cryptocurrencies, as Decrypt first reported on September 7th.

Apparently, the addition of cryptocurrencies came after the acquisition of Just Eat France by Takeaway.com, which has been accepting bitcoin payments to other platforms it has bought since 2017.

Just Eat France describes the payment process and states that users should “create a digital wallet by downloading a custom software or app”. Once connected to the Just Eat app, they can select the Bitcoin payment option upon checkout, which will redirect users to the Bitpay payment gateway.

Bitcoin price will be calculated based on the current Bitpay price and the shipping platform will not charge transaction fees for cryptocurrency payments.

If a user cancels a paid order in bitcoin, the platform will return the amount paid in Euros to the user’s bank account, not in bitcoins. According to the website, the refund amount will not be affected by the current Bitcoin price.
