You can now skip the lines at Tim Hortons locations, as the company has launched their mobile order and pay app, which has been in testing since the spring, while store employees have been training with the mobile order and pay process over the past few weeks.
As expected, the new Tim Hortons iPhone app has launched in the App Store, which says you can now “Select and customize your favorite food and drinks, choose your preferred Tim Hortons location, and pay from the app. It’s now that easy to order your favorite Tim Hortons items from your phone.”
The app offers a personalized menu, showing your recent orders, while it will also have special offers time to time. Users will be able to scan and pay with the app at stores, while they can also choose their pick-up method for in-store, dine-in or drive thru.
The app will also allow you to transfer your funds from the old TimmyMe funds to this new Tim Hortons app “seamlessly”.
Stores will have a new “Mobile Pickup” signage at counters to inform customers where to get their mobile orders:

Upon opening the Tim Hortons app for the first time, it will ask for permission to use your location, plus while the app is open, which is required for mobile orders to be made efficiently based on your location to a store.
To place a mobile order, you’ll need to login, either via Facebook, Google or with an email. You will then be able to set your ‘name’ for orders, then it will ask you to choose your local store, which will be shown on a map plus include a picture of the store front.
At the checkout screen, it will summarize your store address, items ordered, plus show how much it will deduct from your balance. Plus–it’s supports Apple Pay for in-app payments!
We’re also told the app is working in Quebec as well.
