PayPal is expanding the service range of its Order Ahead feature. Starting today, consumers can use the company’s mobile app to order from 14 Jamba Juice locations in Manhattan. Previously, this was only available in San Francisco. In order to entice consumers, PayPal is giving away $5 to every user who downloads the PayPal Mobile app.

The process works whereby the user accesses a participating Jamba Juice store in PayPal’s mobile app. They then place an order and pay. A few minutes later, they can saunter into said store with their order, skipping the line.

Order Ahead was released with the redesigned mobile app when it launched in September.
