The addition of PayPal further cements Papa John's leadership position
as the national pizza brand with the most payment choices. Why

commitment to creating a "better" experience for its customers—whether
that's with high-quality ingredient innovations or an easier, faster
checkout. Pizza lovers can customize
their purchase experience from pizza to payment as easily as they
can tap their fingers, choosing between options and platforms such as
PayPal, Visa Checkout and PayShare powered by Venmo.
New Papa Track Technology
Pizza your way, payment your way, and now customers can track their
order all the way to delivery with Papa Track. Papa Track allows
customers to see the pizza process through each step: making, baking,
boxing, on its way, and delivered. Developed with
customers in mind, Papa Track displays the estimated delivery time, is
