iPayYou launches Bitcoin Direct to Starbucks

Now Accepting | December 30, 2016 By:

iPayYou has launched Bitcoin Direct to Starbucks, a new way for addicts of the coffee chain to use bitcoin.

With this feature, users will be able to seamlessly transfer bitcoin from their existing iPayYou wallet to their Starbucks mobile app. Users just need to select an amount of USD funds they wish to transfer and Bitcoin Direct to Starbucks will automatically withdraw the proper amount of bitcoin from the user’s iPayYou account and deposit the correct amount into the Starbucks account. The transferred amount will be immediately visible in the Starbucks app and users will be able to make purchases at any Starbucks location.

“Commerce in bitcoin is the holy grail of those who envision how this method of payment can benefit both consumers and merchants. Bitcoin Direct to Starbucks is just the latest innovation on our path to bring the value of bitcoin to consumers on an everyday basis,” said iPayYou founder and CEO Gene Kavner.

iPayYou is a Seattle-based bitcoin wallet provider.
