Starbucks Launches Mobile App in Brazil

Starbucks Brazil has launched its mobile app, which includes mobile payment, allowing customers to pay for in-store purchases with their smartphones. Customers now have access to one of the largest mobile payment programs in Brazil and the fastest way to pay at Starbucks® stores.

Brazil is Starbucks first market in South America to enable mobile payment, following successful launches in the United States, Canada, U.K., and other select markets around the world.

In addition to the speed, ease and convenience of paying with a smartphone, the app allows customers to manage their Starbucks Card account, check their card balance, reload their card with any major credit card, and find a nearby Starbucks store with the store locator feature. This is all done through the password-protected app.

The app will engage and reward Starbucks most loyal customers – My Starbucks Rewards™ loyalty program members – by making it easier to earn, track and redeem rewards like free beverages and other special offers via their mobile device.
