How long has TabbedOut been around?

TabbedOut has been around since 2009, born and raised in Austin, TX.

Where can I pay with TabbedOut?

You can pay with TabbedOut at thousands of locations across the nation.

What about security?

All data is securely stored and encrypted within the customer’s own phone and remains encrypted when passed to the point-of-sale system. No information is stored on any servers or in the cloud. We also pre-authorize every card to protect all parties from fraudulent credit card use.

How much does TabbedOut cost consumers?

Nothing, it’s free!! For reals, it’s free.

What if a customer forgets to close out or their phone dies?

Because the encrypted credit card information is passed to the point-of-sale once the consumer opens a tab with TabbedOut – just as if the merchant manually swiped the card, the merchant can close the check manually using the credit card on file.
