Pay with any iOS or Android smartphone, any major payment type and at
any checkout lane – all through the Walmart app
BENTONVILLE, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Walmart knows customers want to save not just money, but also time.
That’s why Walmart introduced Walmart
Pay – a fast, easy and secure way for customers to pay with their
smartphones in Walmart stores. Now, customers in Alabama are among the
first to use the checkout-changing service as it’s available in each of
the more than 120 Walmart stores in the state.
Built with the goal of improving how customers check out and
dramatically expanding mobile payment access, Walmart Pay is like no
other mobile payments solution available today. With this launch,
Walmart becomes the only retailer to offer its own payment solution that
works with any iOS or Android device*, at any checkout lane, and with
any major credit, debit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card – all through the
Walmart mobile app.
Open, Scan, Done – It’s That Easy
Checkout using Walmart Pay happens in three easy steps:
1. Open: Visit any register, open the Walmart app and choose
Walmart Pay. Activate the camera.
2. Scan: At any time during checkout, simply scan the code
displayed at the register. Walmart Pay is now connected.
3. Done: Associate scans and bags the items… and it’s done. An
eReceipt will be sent to the app and can be viewed at any time.
More than twenty million customers actively use the Walmart app each
month and it ranks among the top three retail apps in the Google and
Apple app stores. The Walmart app enhances the shopping experience in
Walmart stores with features including checking in to pick up an online
order at a Walmart store, refilling pharmacy prescriptions and finding
an item’s store location.
“We can’t wait to hear what our customers and associates in Alabama
think of Walmart Pay. The service was built to make shopping easier and
faster, something we know our customers want,” said Daniel Eckert,
senior vice president, Services, Walmart U.S. “Walmart Pay is a powerful
