Just Eat explains payment process details

When they have linked it to the Just Eat application, they can choose the Bitcoin payment option upon checkout to redirect the users to the Bitpay payment portal.
To pay with bitcoin or other supported cryptocurrencies, customers should choose the “Bitcoin” option when ordering. After clicking order, users will be taken to the Bitpay website where they can choose from long list wallets and exchanges.

Bitcoin’s price will be calculated with its current price on Bitpay, and the delivery platform will not charge any transaction fee for the crypto payments.
If a customer cancels an order paid for in Bitcoin, the website will return the paid money in euros in the user’s bank account and not in Bitcoin. According to the Website, the refund amount will not depend on the real-time price of Bitcoin.
