When you’re in a hurry to get that much needed sugar fix, you can’t be bothered to futz with things like actual currency or debit cards. Thankfully, Tim Horton’s now allows mobile payment options from iOS, Android, and BlackBerry devices for nabbing a half-dozen quickly. A select few locations will accommodate those handset-driven payments via NFC while others allow scanning a receipt barcode to deduct monies from a the virtual Tim Card.
If Homer Simpson had a smartphone with him and actually figured out how to use one, then chances are he would definitely love to hang out at Tim Hortons, as this particular establishment now allows you to purchase donuts without having to fumble around with real paper currency or perhaps take out your plastic for a swipe. This is because Tim Hortons has now jumped aboard the “payment via smartphone” bandwagon, enabling mobile payment options for the masses using iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices. Not all Tim Hortons outlets will offer such a hassle free payment facility, of course, since only a select few locations will kick start this particular initiative. After all, it needs to be tested out beforehand to make sure that everything runs nice and smooth before it can be implemented across the board, right? That would make perfect sense.
