The only way to improve on your first cup of coffee in the morning, is to make buying it a little easier (and faster). Just in case we needed another reason to love Tim Hortons, the updated TimmyMe app means that you can take advantage of handy scan-to-pay barcode technology while keeping your change tucked safely inside your wallet. This new payment system in the stores is much akin to the tremendous success Starbucks has garnered.
Using the new mobile payment service is simple: register a Tim Card on your smartphone or online and you are ready to pay for your purchases with a simple scan at participating locations (with more locations being added soon)! Those who frequent Starbucks may already be familiar with the process, as the coffee-rival has featured the ability to pay from your mobile devices using their app for quite some time.
This support for mobile payments comes in addition to the existing features of the TimmyMe app, including: the ability to locate a restaurant near you, help organizing a TimmyRun, reloading your Tim Card, as well as being able to reference nutritional information for the items on their menu.
