Visa is teaming up with Pizza Hut to bring you a car with a built-in pizza-ordering button
“I’d like to order one pepperoni pie for delivery to the freeway, exit 19, please.”
Using your Bluetooth headset to dial and order a pizza while driving is so yesterday. Visa unveiled a new connected car concept at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. Visa’s concept car, designed in partnership with Pizza Hut and Accenture, will allow you to press a button inside your car, and, using interactive voice control, place your order and pay with Visa mobile checkout. Pizza Hut will then be notified via Bluetooth technology when your vehicle is approaching its pizza destination.
“By 2020 it is estimated that more than 250 million vehicles worldwide will include some form of embedded connectivity,” Bill Gajda, senior vice president of Innovation and Strategic Partnerships, Visa Inc., said at the conference. “As the number of connected cars on the road increases, so does our ability to bring secure online commerce to consumers everywhere. We initially focused on a specific use case — ordering a meal on your way home — but we envision a world where consumers can seamlessly make many of their everyday purchases from the car.”
Right now, the focus of the technology is on ordering food, but the same concept could also work for purchasing gas and adding time to parking meters. Visa will roll out a test car in California in the coming months.
Use Apple Pay on the App Store to buy apps and games, or within apps to pay for a ride, a pizza delivery, or a new pair of sneakers — with just a touch or a glance. You can also use Apple Pay for a subscription to Apple Music, Apple News+, and Apple Arcade. Or for upgraded iCloud storage and other Apple services.
When you’re making purchases on the web in Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you can use Apple Pay without having to create an account or fill out lengthy forms. And with Touch ID on MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, paying takes just a touch and is quicker, easier, and more secure than ever before.

Goldman Sachs Vies for GM’s Credit Card, Betting You’ll Buy Coffee With Your Car
GM was the first major car company to allow drivers to order food, pay for gas and book hotel stays from dashboard touch screens.
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is seeking to acquire the credit-card business of General Motors Co. , doubling down on consumer banking and betting on a future where people pay for gas, takeout and groceries from the driver’s seat.
The Wall Street firm is among a small number of bidders for the auto maker’s credit-card business, which has about $3 billion in outstanding balances, according to people familiar with the matter.
There is no guarantee that GM will ultimately choose to replace its current card issuer, Capital One Financial Corp. , or that Goldman will win. Barclays PLC is also in the running, some of the people said, and a decision is expected in the next few weeks.
Goldman launched its first credit card last year, partnering with Apple Inc. and positioning it as a tech-enabled and secure alternative to an outdated product rife with fraud. The Apple card is digitally issued onto users’ iPhones in minutes and uses location data to categorize and track spending.
The bank agreed not to launch another co-branded card for about another year, according to people familiar with the matter, but has been open about its desire to add more merchants. It will have to unseat big banks that dominate the co-brand space, including Synchrony Financial and Citigroup Inc., whose former head of card partnerships, Scott Young, Goldman hired in 2017 to pursue similar deals.
You will soon be able to order pizza with App Clips
In case you are looking for another good reason to order pizza, Pizza Hut Australia is creating App Clips of its Pizza Hut Australia app, making it even faster to get pizza from its ovens to your mouth.
Introduced by Apple in 2020 as part of iOS 14, App Clips are kind of like Apple’s answer to QR codes. They are small parts of whole apps that are discoverable in pages where you would most likely need to launch an app for something, like after seeing a particularly good deal for pizza on a pizza vendor’s homepage.
Credit: Apple An App Clips code
Apple developed App Clips in the same Xcode project as its suite of full apps using the iOS Software Development Kit and they work much the same way as full apps. Each App Clip encodes a URL and can also incorporate an NFC tag, which allows it to be scanned with an iPhone camera or tapped on to be opened. But App Clips are very lightweight, mostly less than 10MB, so they open much quicker than normal apps.
For example, if you want to order a pizza, you could tap on an App Clip at the bottom of your iPhone screen and put in your order for a delicious, cheesy margherita. In this hypothetical case, since your pizza App Clip is just a snippet of the full pizza app that focuses on just one thing, ordering your margherita, the App Clip opens in seconds making it quicker and easier to place your precious order.
App Clips also work with Apple Pay once opened, you have the option to accept terms and conditions to continue your purchase, so you don’t need to go through the full rigmarole of signing up for payment systems within an app you haven’t downloaded.
App Clips also offer some really convenient functionality on top of their quick access: they can be shared via the iMessage app - in case you need to immediately let a friend know where you got that mouth-watering pizza, and can also be registered to appear on place cards in maps. They also aren’t as conspicuous as normal apps, appearing in the Recents category of the App Library, instead of on the iPhone’s Home Screen.
Pizza Hut Australia will add App Clips functionality to a list of other software applications it has engaged to boost its customer service experience, having already provided access to payment apps such as zip, Apple Pay and PayPal. The Pizza Hut Australia app will join the likes of apps like Etsy, ChibiStudio and Drop Recipes that already have their own App Clips.
Commenting about the inclusion of App Clips, Pizza Hut Australia chief marketing officer Chet Patel, said on LinkedIn today, “The App Clip code will begin appearing on our advertising everywhere making it easier for more Australians to scan and share good times.”

Not everyone likes Star Wars.
Not everyone likes seafood.

And no two are exactly the same.
They will each speak to different people, facing different food needs.
All over the world, millions of people are logging onto a website or swiping an app, to help them make their meal decisions for the week.
They yearn to take one thing off their plate… in order to free up precious time that could better be spent with family, friends, working, exercising, socializing.
