Tipping for your coffee at Starbucks has been simplified with digital tipping. The Starbucks app that you can use to pay will be adding a digital tip option to your order, meaning the tip jar will soon become obsolete. Starbucks is slowly moving away from physical money and embracing the digital payment world with arms wide open with the developments of digital tipping and shake to pay.

The digital tipping part of the Starbucks app allows for you to tip after you have finished your coffee. Providing you the chance to decide whether your coffee was good enough to be tip worthy.

Along with the introduction of the digital tipping, Starbucks has introduced the shake to pay option. Coffee lovers can now access the barcode of their Starbucks card by shaking their phone. Making paying as easy as flicking your wrist.
