McDonald’s testing payment app in Austin

Posted: Updated:

Soon you may be able to order and pay for your McDonald's with your smartphone.

McDonald's is testing a smartphone app in two markets; Salt Lake City, Utah and in Austin.

It's a partnership with ISIS, a mobile phone app, that allows you to pay for purchases without having to pull out your wallet.

McDonald's reps say they're trying to make it easier for people to load up on Big Macs, wraps and smoothies.

The system will also include special promotions and a loyalty program. Some say we're moving to a cashless society and this is just an effort to reach out to future generations.

Carter Edwards said, "I've left my wallet at work or at home multiple times, so that's a great idea. I'm always with my phone, so I like it."

"I feel like it would be better if it's available for every place. I feel like that would make it a lot easier," said Khushboo Parmar.

Ashley Phillips said, "It's a good way to save your time, so it's actually something I would probably really do, yeah."

Edwards added, "Send it to me first, I want to try it okay?"

An official launch is set for the September 26.
