Can I order through Cocot when I’m already inside the restaurant?
Because this defeats the purpose of pre-ordering and does not allow a wait free service, we do not recommend to use Cocot inside restaurants.

Yes. Your payment method details are never shared with anybody. Even we do not have access to anything but the last four digits of your card number and the expiration date.
Why do you charge and then return $1 on my payment method after registration?
This is the way our payment system checks the payment method to make sure it is valid. No money is deducted from your account. It’s only an authorization.

We do not allow to use payment methods already registered in our system. In this case, we remove credits from the account and disable the usage of referral and promotional credits for this account in the future.
