Customers in the United Kingdom and Canada using Android phones will now be able to use a mobile payment application at Starbucks.

In a statement, the Seattle-based coffee franchise said that it had introduced the new system to make it easier to purchase products at its thousands of locations. Those who shop at the store will be able to get access to My Starbucks Rewards statistics on their phones as well.

The leadership of Starbucks says that more people would be able to get access to its payment method.

“The expansion of our mobile payment footprint to two of our most important markets is a strong milestone for us, but more importantly, it extends the number of customers who now have a faster and easier way to pay at Starbucks,” said Adam Brotman, chief digital officer at Starbucks in the release.

The mobile sector is considered the future of payments, with many firms unveiling new applications. In one recent case, ShopAlerts Wallet was recently introduced by Placecase and gives users the chance to get access to savings with location-based software.
