Starbucks Philippines launched on Tuesday, November 17, an in-app feature that allows customers to order and pay for their purchases in advance for later pick-up inside their stores.
The “Mobile Order & Pay” service means users can reduce contact and time in-store while still earning points from Starbucks purchases. The service, however, does not include delivery of the items. You’ll still need to pick them up yourself in-store.
It’ll also allow users to collect e-stickers as part of the coffee chain’s yearly holiday campaign, wherein users must collect 18 physical or electronic stickers in order to get a Starbucks planner or organizer for free. One handcrafted drink is equivalent to a physical or electronic sticker.
To place an order, users just need to open the Starbucks Philippines app, log into their Starbucks Rewards account, and tap order. From there, they can customize their drink and select their preferred store for pickup. Payments are also made through the app, which will also indicate the estimated pickup time for your order.
You can still get Starbucks delivered through GrabFood – although purchases made through Grab’s platform won’t count towards any of Starbucks’ rewards programs. – Rappler.com
