It’s been a request by Starbucks aficionados for a long time and the day has arrived! Today, November 8th, 2011, marks the day that Starbucks updated their iPhone app to accept mobile payments in Canada. Version 2.1 is now available to download and brings iOS5 support and the ability to pay via your iPhone. All you have to do to get started is have a registered Starbucks card with money loaded in, upon cashing out the barista will scan the barcode that’s on your iPhone and your balance will be reduced. Good news for BlackBerry and Android users as mobile payments will be coming to you “in the coming months”.
