How to use Starbucks’ Mobile Order & Pay

If you want to shorten the time for getting your go-to coffee orders, Starbucks Philippines offers a way to get those orders in before you’re even in the store with Mobile Order & Pay.

The feature is integrated within the Starbucks Philippines app and Starbucks Rewards program. And it’s easy to use. (You can download the app on Android and iOS in the links.)

Here’s how to set it up:

  1. If you don’t have it yet, download the Starbucks app.
  2. Register to Starbucks Rewards (if you hadn’t either).
  3. Once registered, you just need to select your order. You can customize your beverage and even choose to get your pastry warmed. Payment is made within the app, too.
  4. Then you just need to decide where to pick up your order: in-store, curbside, drive-thru, or outdoor.

This is what you need to do depending on what pickup method you select:

In-store pickup

If you decide to pick it up in a store, just head straight to the pickup counter when you get there. You no longer need to fall in line to place your order.

Curbside pickup

Curbside pickup is available at select stores. You will need to park in the designated parking slot, check in, and wait for a barista to bring the order to you.

Drive-thru pickup

All you have to do is arrive at the drive-thru window to pick up your order. Of course, this option is only available in stores where Starbucks has a drive-thru area.

Outdoor pickup

This option is also just available at select Starbucks outlets. You can either pick it up in front of the store or at designated collection points. A barista will meet you there to hand you your order.

If you use Mobile to Order Pay, you can still collect Stars on your purchases as a Starbucks Rewards member. And when it is the holiday season, you can even collect e-stickers for your mobile orders under the Starbucks Traditions promotion.
