Starbucks is launching an Android version of its m-payment app in the UK and Canada (view press release). Through the app, Canadian and UK customers will have access to a variety of features including Starbucks Card mobile payment, store locator, My Starbucks Rewards stars, check balance and reload, PIN code protection, widget and balance transfer capabilities. In conjunction with this, enhancements made to the Android app in the US will enable customers to experience new features such as a widget, PayPal support, PIN code protection and viewing the My Starbucks Rewards history dashboard.
“The expansion of our mobile payment footprint to two of our most important markets is a strong milestone for us, but more importantly, it extends the number of customers who now have a faster and easier way to pay at Starbucks,” said Adam Brotman, chief digital officer at Starbucks. “We are thrilled to extend mobile payment capabilities to Android smartphones in the UK and Canada and enhance the experience in the US.”
