Visa Checkout Expands Mobile Wallet to More Worldwide Merchants

Visa Checkout Expands Mobile Wallet to More Worldwide Merchants

May 28, 2015         Written By Bill Hardekopf

Visa’s mobile wallet, known as Visa Checkout, is now being accepted at even more online and in-person merchants. The company announced it will be expanding its services in several countries, giving more customers access to fast, convenient mobile payment solutions.

The new merchants in the United States include Fandango, Dunkin’ Donuts, Williams-Sonoma and Sundance Catalog. In Canada, merchants include Indigo, Running Room, Simons and Roots. In Australia, the mobile wallet is expanding to BONDS, Ticketek and Pizza Hut.

“Visa Checkout offers just that – a fast, easy way to check out in just a few clicks without filling out endless form fields,” Sam Shrauger, senior vice president of digital solutions at Visa, said. “The early response from consumers and merchants for Visa Checkout has exceeded our expectations and increased our commitment to seeing its acceptance and usage continue to grow on a global scale.”

This announcement comes just days after Checkout’s sister digital wallet in the UK, V.me, reported a long-awaited growth in the coming months. V.me has been available for 18 months, but it hasn’t had the support it needed to grow. V.me was originally available in the United States, Australia and Canada, but it was replaced with Visa Checkout last year. Checkout now has four million registered users.
