If you want to shop at Starbucks and are trying to figure out, “Does Starbucks take Apple Pay?” Then you came to the right article. In short, Yes, Starbucks does take Apple pay in their shops. Read below for more info on different payment methods at Starbucks and how you can buy coffee more efficiently.
Using Apple Pay at Starbucks
If you walk into a Starbucks, you will be able to checkout using Apple Pay, and there are other methods for using Apple Pay in the Starbucks app that I will explain below.
Instructions for using Apple Pay at Starbucks:
- Order your items
- Open your Wallet on your iPhone
- Choose your Payment Method and Checkout
Depending on how you have Apple Pay set up on your phone, you double-press the side lock button on the iPhone, and your Wallet will appear. You can then choose which payment method you prefer to pay for your items with. Later in the article, I will go over how to add Starbucks Gift cards to your Apple Wallet.
By following the above instructions, you should be able to pay for your Starbucks items using Apple Pay.
How to Add Starbucks Card to Apple Wallet
First, let’s go over how to add a Starbucks gift card to the Starbucks app on your phone and then how you can add the card to your Apple Wallet for future payments. You will also be able to reload your gift card, which I will review in a later section.
Open the Starbucks app and log into your account. You then should see five sections at the bottom of the Starbucks app labeled “Home,” “Scan,” “Order,” “Gift,” and “Offers.” You can add your gift card in either the “Scan” or “Gift” sections.
Let’s start with the “Gift” section; you should see the words “Got a gift card? Add it here” on the Starbucks app; this is where you will be able to add your Starbucks gift card to the Starbucks app. You can insert your gift card number and the security code to add it. After that, you can tap “Add card” in the bottom right corner of your phone screen.
You can add the Starbucks card in the app to your Apple Wallet by going to the “Scan” section on the mobile app and looking for the option that says “Add to Apple Wallet.” Once you select this, the card will appear, and you can choose “Add” in the top right corner.
Add Funds to Starbucks Card in App
Now let’s go over how to “add funds” to your Starbucks card on the app. First, go to the “scan” section and ensure you’re in the “Scan & pay” section at the app’s top. In this section, look for the button labeled “Add funds” this is where you can add more money to your Starbucks card on the app.
When you select the “Add funds” button, you will see at the top, “Add money to Starbucks Card,” this is where you will see the current amount on your card and a place to select a new amount to add.
The amounts start at $10 to add to your card and go up to $100. You can also choose to “Auto reload,” which means the app will reload your card when it hits a certain threshold, like below $10.
The user interface on the Starbucks app is easy to use and keeps track of your orders.
Change Reload Payment Method
In the section above, where you can add more money to your Starbucks card, you also have the option to add another method of payment for reloading the card. You will see a section labeled “Payment” once you select that option, you will see “Add payment.” You can add a new card, Paypal, or Bakkt to your account.
This option is great and lets you change payment methods for the Starbucks app.
Send Starbucks Gift Cards
An interesting and convenient option I saw in the Starbucks app was the ability to load money onto a Starbucks gift card and send it to an email address. The gift card selection has plenty of designs to choose from. You can put money on the gift card, and the instructions later in the article will show you where you can select an amount.
I noticed that when using the Starbucks website to send a gift card, you can add a credit card or Paypal. On the mobile version, you also have the option to use Apple Pay to put money on the gift card.
Starbucks Card on the Website
You can also access and order Starbucks items through the website when you sign into your account. Once you sign into your account, you will see a section in the top left corner labeled “Cards,” this is where you will be able to access your Starbucks card on the desktop version.
Another way to access the card is by clicking “Account” in the top right corner. A list will appear on the screen when you select “Account,” and you will see a section labeled “Card Management” this is also another way to access your card on the desktop version.
You can also add more money to your card on the website in the same section as the above instructions.
If you select the “Gift” section on the website, this is similar to the mobile app version, where you will be able to send an email address to a gift card with a specific amount. I noticed that when in the process of sending a gift card on the Starbucks website, you have an option labeled “Custom Amount.”
This “Custom Amount” option is also on the mobile app but labeled “Other,”, and as the Starbucks app specifies, you can add “At least $5 up to $100.”
So to conclude, you can use Apple Pay in Starbucks shops, and you can also use Apple Pay to add more money to your Starbucks card on the app. The instructions above can help guide you on how to use Apple Pay in the shop and on the app. You also get a detailed explanation of finding and using the gift card section on Starbucks’s mobile app and desktop version.
The mobile app has plenty of features, and you can use your Starbucks card to purchase items in the app. There are options to pick up your items in the shop or at the drive-thru if your local Starbucks has one. You can also add other payment methods to the app to reload your card, and the instructions above can help you find the section to start that process.
