Grubhub has come out with a Venmo integration, which it officially announced today. Now, you can use Venmo as a payment option inside Grubhub. The new integration also lets you split the bill for group food orders with Venmo.
Users must have both Grubhub and Venmo installed for the feature to work. When users open Grubhub, they’ll be informed that they can now use Venmo inside the app. The new integration actually went live last week for some users, but it’s more broadly rolling out today.
Venmo will also automatically be listed as an available payment option on the checkout page. Once you click on Venmo, it takes you to the app, but returns you to Grubhub when you’re finished splitting the bill or requesting money. The feature will likely save users the extra step of entering a separate app to pay back their friends. That’s potentially useful for people, myself included, whose attention might wander while ordering food and who might forget to ask their friends to pay them back.
The Venmo integration is available on Seamless and Eat24 as well, which are all under the same company; Grubhub and Seamless merged in 2013, and Grubhub bought Eat24 from Yelp last summer.
