It is still under a year since the mobile payment app was launched by the coffee giant Starbucks in the US, but in that time, this app has been used almost twenty six million times across the Android, Blackberry and iOS platforms.
According to Adam Brotman, who is the SVP and general manager of Starbucks, he said that;
“The mobile-payments initiative has built momentum recently: In the nine weeks after it was released, there were 3 million transactions. But in the past nine weeks, there have been 6 million.”
He added that;
“New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago and San Jose, Calif., are the top cities by volume for mobile purchases.”
There is still no news on when this popular mobile payment app will become available to consumers in other countries, although it is believed that 2012 could see the system rolling out further afield.
