Starbucks' Pay-By-App Test Grinds Away

Starbucks said today it was expanding its mobile-payment testing grounds to include 300 company-owned stores in the NYC-Long Island area. The system uses an app version of the Starbucks Card. The app displays a barcode that is read by the scanner at check-out. Testing of the app (available for the iPhone, the iPod touch and certain BlackBerrys) began late last year in Starbucks locations inside Target stores and a few outlets in Seattle and Northern California.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
