Tim Hortons launches new mobile payment service

tim-hortons

Canadian coffee shop chain Tim Hortons has just launched a new mobile barcode payments system that allows you to pay using the TimmyMe app. The payment option has been in testing over the last few months, and is now available for all users in Canada and the United States.

The mobile payment service allows you to pay for your order by registering your Tim Card on your smartphone, and then simply scanning the barcode on the bill using the TimmyMe app. If you have an NFC-enabled device, you can also use the tap-to-pay option (at participating stores) to complete your order.

In addition to mobile payments, the TimmyMe app can be used to locate nearby Tim Hortons restaurants, place an order ahead of time and view nutritional information of items on the menu. TimmyMe requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Tim Hortons launches new mobile payment service

It's great for those with no credit. But if you have decent credit, I can't see why having all of these payment apps is better than me simply tapping my MasterCard on the terminal.

Convenience. Rather than fishing for change or your credit card, you tap your phone. They also support NFC credit card apps, so RBC and CIBC credit cards. Hopefully, TD, BMO, and BNS catch up soon.
