Walmart Pay Rolls Out Nationwide

By Jamie Grill-Goodman - 07/07/2016
After months of gradually rolling out Walmart Pay, the mobile payment solution is officially available in all 4,600 Walmart stores in the U.S. The rollout began in December, with a big push into 3,300 stores over the last three weeks, according to Molly Blakeman, Senior Manager, National Media Relations at Walmart.

So far, the time-saving payment option has been favored by users; Eighty-two percent of customers that used it during the rollout would recommend using Walmart Pay and three out of four customers have given Walmart Pay a five star rating in the Walmart app.

“There is something very powerful about the ease and simplicity of Walmart Pay,” said Daniel Eckert, senior vice president, services, Walmart U.S. “What’s even more powerful though, is what this means for our customers. We want to make every day easier for busy families. We’re connecting all the parts of Walmart into one seamless shopping experience with great stores, easy pickup, fast delivery, frictionless checkout and apps and websites that are simple to use.”

Available through the Walmart app, Walmart Pay works with any iOS or Android device, at any checkout lane, and with any credit, debit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card. Shoppers with a Walamart.com account, set up via mobile or desktop, select a payment form to be their Walmart Pay default. Then when they open the Walmart app and choose Walmart Pay and it actives the phone's camera. After entering a pin or ID it allows them to scan the app to pay.

Shoppers seem willing to try it. Walmart Pay transactions increased 45% in the last week since the nationwide launch and 88 percent of transactions are coming from repeat Walmart Pay users.
