PayPal announced today that Android users can now use PayPal with the Starbucks app for Android to pay for coffee at Starbucks in the U.S. and Canada. iPhone users were already able to do so, and now the majority of smartphone users in these countries will be able to.

The announcement was made at Venturebeat’s MobileBeat conference, where PayPal will be talking more about its mobile strategy.

“The process is simple,” says PayPal VP of Global Product, Hill Ferguson. “Android users running 2.2 and above just download or update the Starbucks app for Android and link a PayPal account to their Starbucks card stored in the app, so when they’re in store, they can scan and pay easily. If the card is running low on funds, users can reload with PayPal quickly and securely, knowing all their financial information stored safely in the cloud.”

“As the consumers continue to demand more sophisticated mobile experiences, here at PayPal we’re committed to making it easier for people to shop and pay — anytime, anywhere and any way,” says Ferguson.
