Starbucks to launch new mobile commerce service next year

Company announces plans to make new services available nationwide in 2015

Starbucks is planning to launch a new service for iPhone users next year. The service is called Mobile Order & Pay and has already been made available in Oregon as part of a pilot project. Next year, the company plans to make this service available throughout the U.S., allowing customers to place orders from their iPhone before they even set foot in a Starbucks store. The service is part of the company’s ongoing mobile commerce mission.

Users of the new service will be able to place and pay for orders before they set foot in a Starbucks store

Starbucks has established a strong place in the U.S. mobile commerce space. The company has been seeing a significant portion of its business come from mobile consumers in recent years and has been building new services that cater specifically to these consumers. Many people can already pay for their orders using a mobile device in Starbucks stores, but the new service will allow them to place orders before they arrive at these stores. Mobile Order & Pay will inform users when their order will be ready and these orders can be paid for in advance.
