Walmart Pay launches nationwide

On Wednesday Walmart (WMT) announced the launch of its new ‘Walmart Pay’, a mobile payment system, which consumers can add on their phones as an app on iOS or Android. Walmart Pay will be available in all 4,600 stores in the U.S. Currently the app has 20 million users, a number which is likely to increase as it will be made available throughout the country. The new payment system promises to make consumers shopping experience more simple and easy.

More consumers in America are making use of mobile payment systems like Apple Pay and Android Pay. Walmart Pay is only limited to Walmart stores for the time being. This move by Walmart represents a step in keeping up with technological trends as more people are lured by the convenience of online shopping. Those still choosing to shop at a retailer can checkout faster.
