About this app

Exchanging cash and credit cards to pay your tab or restaurant bill is so 2019. Rooam is a contactless payment solution allowing you to open, view and pay your tab directly from your phone. Simply put, less time waiting in line, or waiting for your server, means more time enjoying your night out!

How it works:
1. Download Rooam and create your account
2. Select your location
3. Press "Open Tab." Your tab is now open at the bar or restaurant. Order with the bartender or server, and say you're using Rooam. You'll see a live update of each item you order on the app. Once you're ready to go, select your tip and press "Close Tab." That's it! Your bills paid.

Paying with Rooam is simple:
• Select your tip with one tap
• Connect Google Pay in seconds
• View your order history and itemized receipts at any time

• Rooam is trusted by music venues, bars, & restaurants you know and love.
• Refer your friends and get $5 off your next tab
• 24/7 customer support available right inside the app.
• Forgot to close your tab? No worries, just open the Rooam app and close it from your home. No need to go back.

Why businesses love it:
• Highest level of PCI Compliance.

I love this app and will gladly rate it higher when it works for us again. At the last 2 shows at the Anthem where my wife and I tried to open a Rooam tab, the app just hangs at the loading screen with the logo. It happens on both of our phones. Tried it on home wifi, club wifi, and cell network. My wife was able to uninstall/reinstall to get it working, but same thing happened again last night and that process didn't help. Been using it for years before this with no problems.

Great concept for an app. Super convenient and easy -- I can close out my tab whenever I want without waiting in line. Had some issues (apparently caused by the bar, not the app itself) and the CEO personally reached out to fix it. I appreciate their strive for good customer service and that they made my issue right again. I will use this app again and into the future.

used rooam at an event. it was the preferred method of payment by the event organizers. it was easy to use -- well worth the $1 service fee. i forgot to close my tab, but they sent me a text reminder next morning. there is no itemization, but i just ordered two glasses of wine -- easy enough to track. app suggested an appropriate 20% tip. i didnt try to change it up/down. if i left a cash tip, i'd want the option to deselect it.

Thanks for all of the feedback Andrea!! So glad that Rooam made your night easier! Also, if you want to see an itemized version for any Rooam receipts, you can: go to Rooam's home page, select the three horizontal bars at the top left, and select "History." - Hope that is helpful 😀
