Starbucks is expanding its mobile card payment system.

Starbucks in response to customer feedback, are expanding their Starbucks Card Mobile App that was first developed for BlackBerry and iPhone smartphone as these devices are used by more than 71 percent of Starbucks smartphone-carrying customers. To experience mobile payment at participating New York City-area Starbucks, customers just need to download the free Starbucks Card Mobile App on their supported BlackBerry smartphone, iPhone or iPod touch. In addition to the mobile payment feature, the app allows customers to manage their card account, reload their card balance directly from their smartphone with a major credit card, check their My Starbucks Rewards status, or find nearby Starbucks stores. With the Starbucks Card Mobile App, customers will have a barcode on their screen that they’ll hold in front of a 2-D scanner on the counter to pay for their purchase.

Brady Brewer, vice president Starbucks Card and Loyalty said that "mobile technology is part of our customers’ daily routine and with the expansion of mobile payment, we’re seeing more and more customers using their smart-phones as their mobile wallets".
