7,000 Starbucks Locations Now Accepting Square Wallet

Paypal and Square Wallet

Starbucks locations throughout the United States are now accepting Square Wallet. The program allows users to pay for their coffee without pulling out their credit or debit card.

Square Wallet is a mobile system that stores credit and debit cards, loyalty cards, and other information, all while helping users gain rewards points and other helpful information.

The new partnership is spread throughout 7,000 Starbucks stores.

According to Starbucks Chief Digital Office, Adam Brotman:

“We look forward to continuing to create amazing connections with our customers – both in our stores and outside of our stores and offering our customers choices in how they want to pay. Starbucks was the first national retailer to offer its own mobile payment technology combined with a world-class loyalty program in January 2011, and we have seen a tremendous response from our customers with more than 100 million mobile transactions occurring in our U.S. stores since its launch. Starbucks believes in the values and vision of Square, and just three months after announcing our partnership with Square, we are thrilled to make the convenience of paying with the Square Wallet app available to our customers starting today.”

Still not sure how this new program will benefit your trips to a local Starbucks? Here’s a video that demonstrated the new partnership between Square Wallet and Starbucks:

With billions of dollars in annual credit card and debit card transactions up for grabs the mobile payments sector is heating up, the question now is whether or not users will jump on board.

    Square was just lucky because they were the 1st in the industry of MPOS. The partnership doesn't mean they are the best. I can always pay using cash in Starbucks and use my MPOS (www.mpowa.com) somewhere else more important.
