Starbucks To Accept Mobile Payments With Square

Square will soon begin processing all credit and debit card transactions at Starbucks stores in the United States, streamlining the payment process in-store with customers eventually being able to charge their order to their credit cards simply by saying their names.

A huge coup for Square, this will see the company processing payments at 11,000 Starbucks stores on street corners across America. While mobile payments have a long way to go, this is the clearest sign yet of their mainstream inevitability.
