Starbucks announcing a new way to pay
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Soon, you may never need your wallet again--at least not if you go to Starbucks.
The coffee giant is teaming up with a new startup company called Square, to offer an app to customers.
Once downloaded, it gives you the option to pay for your latte by smartphone.
The plan will go into motion in the fall at thousands of Starbucks locations.
Eventually that app is expected to go even further, where all you would have to do is tell the cashier your name and your phone would do the rest, sending your information and picture to the register the moment you walk in the store.
All this while still in your pocket.
Of course, customers would still have the option to pay for their products using traditional cash or cards.
