Walmart Pay Expands to 19 New States
Walmart Pay has undergone a major expansion in the United States, entering 19 new states. The retailer’s payment platform is now available in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Idaho and Colorado.
The news of this expansion comes just one week after Walmart announced it will make its debut in Texas and Arkansas. More than 20 million customers have already used the Walmart Pay app since the app debuted last December.
Walmart Pay is designed to work much like other mobile wallets, but it is tailored for Walmart stores. Users can upload debit and credit cards to their Walmart Pay accounts, and then use those payment methods to complete transactions in-store. The register provides a QR code that users can scan into their phones to confirm the transaction. This quick pay-and-go service eliminates the need to physically bring cards to the register, and allows users to view eReceipts of their purchases at any time.
In addition to the checkout services provided in the Walmart Pay app, there are also options to find select items in a store and refill pharmacy prescriptions through a mobile device. Walmart’s mobile payment platform is available for both Android and Apple phones.
