NYS Offers Free Online Ordering for Restaurants & Taverns

Empire State Digital is collaborating with Ritual and PayPal to launch a relief program to help hospitality businesses across our state move to contactless transactions, implement touchless payments and increase their online orders.

Through March 31, 2021, e-commerce company Ritual will offer its commission-free digital ordering platform Ritual ONE to New York’s restaurants, taverns, and bars at no cost. Additionally, PayPal has committed $1 million towards discounted purchases for customers who make a purchase at those businesses who sign up for Ritual ONE. Through this effort:

  • Ritual will provide its commission-free digital ordering platform Ritual ONE to New York businesses at no cost through the end of March 2021. If 2,500 businesses sign up on the program ahead of March 31, Ritual will waive costs for April 2021 as well.
  • This includes waiving set-up, monthly subscription, and credit card processing fees. Your businesses will keep 100% of your sales (for takeout and delivery) through Ritual ONE during this trial period.
  • $1 million in customer discounts will be funded by PayPal and Ritual to customers to spend at businesses on Ritual ONE starting in February 2021.
