The Phillies released a video of the Phanatic showing how to successfully place an order.

Here are the steps:

1. Open the iPhone Camera app
2. Scan the QR code on the seat back
3. Follow the prompts on the Messages text screen to place order
4. Complete transaction with Apple Pay
5. Enjoy the game while order is delivered to seat location

The pilot program will be conducted over the course of ten games: July 20-25 and August 2-5.
