Tim Hortons Launches New TimmyMe App For Scan-to-Pay Mobile Payments

May 22, 2014 - Written By Cory McNutt

If you are like most Canadians or if you live in the northern United States, then the following words, Timmy Hortons, Timbits, Bagel BELT, TimmyRun, and Tim Card, are a part of your vocabulary…be prepared to add one more – TimmyMe.  The TimmyMe for Android is a new App that allows you to make mobile payments with your smartphone via a barcode that shows up on your display.  You simply allow your attendant to scan the barcode and off you go – no more fussing with a separate Tim Card, as they are now loaded on your smartphone. It is as easy as ONE-TWO-SCAN.

David Clanachan, Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons said: “We’re continuously working to implement best-in-class, customer-centric technology in our restaurants and the launch of mobile barcode payments enables us to offer the best overall guest experience.  Enhancing our technology so that guests can store their digital Tim Card in their phone for quick and easy payments is an added convenience we know customers will enjoy.”

Getting setup and ready to begin using the new TimmyMe app is easy – Download the TimmyMe App from the Google Play Store – Register an Account and add your Tim Card(s) on your smartphone or online at TimHortons.com/TimCard – Whether it’s coffee, breakfast, lunch, or a donut, pay with just a scan of your smartphone at a participating Tim Hortons.  There are only certain Tim Hortons that are using the Scan-to-Pay mobile app, but more are being added every day.

The TimmyMe App allows you to Find a Restaurant, Manage your Tim Cards, setup a TimmyRun, Connect with Tims, Contact them, or get Nutritional Info.  Within the App you can View Transactions, Update your Tim Card, Add a new Tim Card, and even Merge Tim Cards so all the balances are moved to one card.  There is also an area to your Manage Credit Cards that you use when you refill your Tim Card.

Restaurants, especially places that serve a lot of breakfast-type items are always looking for ways to get you in and out in a hurry – not so much because they want to get rid of you, but they know that morning customers are in a hurry to get to work.  The addition of mobile payments from you smartphone should help to enhance your Tim Hortons’ experience.
