Walmart mobile app to launch in-store payment feature


Last week, Walmart announced a new in-store payment feature on its mobile app. The U.S. retailer is the first to offer its own payment solution that works with any iOS or Android device and with any major credit, debit, pre-paid card or Walmart gift card.

“The Walmart app was built to make shopping faster and easier,” says Neil Ashe, CEO and president of Walmart Global eCommerce. “Walmart Pay is the latest example—and a powerful addition—of how we are transforming the shopping experience by seamlessly connecting online, mobile and stores for the 140 million customers who shop with us weekly.”

The new service will launch in select Walmart stores this month, and will continue into the first half of 2016. CJ
