MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Customers at more than 120 Walmart locations across Alabama will be able to checkout using their smartphones.
The service, which was announced in December, makes Walmart the only retailer to offer its own payment solution that works with any iOS or Android device at any checkout lane with any major credit, debit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card — all through the Walmart mobile app.
Reports say Alabama customers will be able to start using Walmart Pay on Thursday. Company spokeswoman Molly Blakeman says the service also rolled out in three other southern states including Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
Walmart Pay is already available in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. It will soon be available nationwide.
The Walmart Pay webpage says users can register by scanning an active QR code at any supporting store or by setting their home store to a supporting store in the Walmart app.
Walmart Pay takes only three quick steps:
- Open: Visit any register, open the Walmart app and choose Walmart Pay. Activate the camera.
- Scan: At any time during checkout, simply scan the code displayed at the register. Walmart Pay is now connected.
- 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.
