Starbucks adds Square readers to menu

Starbucks adds Square readers to menu

Square is taking advantage of its relationship with Starbucks by selling its mobile credit card readers in the coffee chain's 7000 US outlets.

In August, Starbucks invested $25 million in Square and announced plans to let people use the start-up's app to pay in stores.

Customers can now also buy the readers - which in conjunction with a Square app enable merchants to accept card payments - for $9.99 in any US Starbucks and then claim back a $10 rebate when they sign up.

The dongles are already available at tens of thousands of sites belonging to big retailers such as Apple, AT&T, Best Buy, RadioShack, Target and Wal-Mart.
