Walmart Launches Walmart Pay in Virginia and the Carolinas

Payments , Retail Banking

Walmart knows customers want to save not just money, but also time. That’s why Walmart introduced Walmart Pay – a safe, easy, convenient way for customers to pay with their smartphones in Walmart stores. Now, customers in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina have access to the checkout-changing service as it’s available in each of the more than 420 Walmart stores across the three states.

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 the area 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 addition to our app, a tool that we’re using to transform the shopping experience by seamlessly connecting our online assets and our stores for customers. The service opens the door to new and better ways we can serve the 140 million customers who shop our stores each week.”
