Starbucks has announced upcoming enhancements to its mobile app for iPhone to be available March 19 - including "shake to pay" and "digital tipping".
With shake to pay, customers can now bring the barcode of their Starbucks Card front and center at any time, simply by shaking their mobile device. Digital tipping gives customers the option to provide a tip in the following denominations: $0.50, $1.00, $2.00.
With more than 11 percent of transactions a week now happening with a mobile device in our stores, and nearly 10 million customers currently using our mobile app, we’re thrilled to make the digital experience even easier and more rewarding for our customers and partners,” said Adam Brotman, chief digital officer for Starbucks.
“This update to the Starbucks App for iPhone is an important next step in digital innovation at Starbucks and one of the many ways we’ll expand and improve our digital experience in the months to come.”
The Starbucks App for iPhone is available for download from the App Store or at http://sbux.co/StarbucksforiPhone. Additionally, customers can access their Starbucks account using Passbook, allowing customers’ mobile Starbucks Cards to appear on their iPhone screen automatically after they enter a favorite Starbucks® store.
