Starbucks extends mobile payment program drops #QR Codes

Today Starbucks announced the availability of mobile payment in all company stores in the U.S. (Press release). In September 2009 Starbucks started testing payment using QR Codes in sixteen selected stores in Silicon Valley and Seattle and extended the program in October 2010 to an additional 300 stores in New York City and Long Island. The extended program dropped QR Codes in favor of a stacked linear barcode PDF417 and this is the code chosen for the country wide rollout
