Starbucks Offers Square Wallet Beginning Today

Starting today, Starbucks will begin accepting Square’s mobile payment application in over 7,000 locations. The deal between Square and Starbucks came three months ago back in mid August. Square wallet will give Starbucks  customers another way to enjoy a quick, seamless payment experience at their various locations. Wondering how it will work? Well, it is a fairly simple process, “a barcode is displayed on the smartphone screen and is scanned by a reader at the register.” Square aims at staying atop the mobile payment platform and this is a move in the right direction for CEO Jack Dorsey. Starbucks also invested $25 million into Square and Square will eventually, “be processing all of Starbucks’ U.S. credit and debit card transactions.”
