Walmart Pay

Walmart has introduced Walmart Pay—a fast, easy and secure way for customers to pay with their smartphones in Walmart stores.

Starting today, customers at all 10 Hawai‘i Walmart stores will be able to use the new service.

Built with the goal of improving how customers check out and expanding mobile payment access, Walmart becomes the only retailer to offer its own payment solution that works with any iOS or Android device at any checkout lane and with any major credit, debit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card.

Three-Step Walmart Pay Checkout

1. Open: Visit any register, open the Walmart app and choose Walmart Pay. Enter your four-digit passcode or Touch ID to activate the camera.
2. Scan: At any time during checkout, simply scan the code displayed at the register. Walmart Pay is now connected.
3. 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.

The Walmart app enhances the shopping experience in Walmart stores with features including checking in to pick up an online order at a Walmart store, refilling pharmacy prescriptions and finding an item’s store location.

“We can’t wait to hear what our customers and associates in Hawai‘i think of Walmart Pay,” said Daniel Eckert, senior vice president of services for Walmart US. The service was built to make shopping easier and faster—something we know our customers want. Walmart Pay is a powerful addition to our app, a tool that we’re using to transform the shopping experience by seamlessly connecting our online assets and our stores for customers. The service opens the door to new and better ways we can serve the 140 million customers who shop our stores each week.”
