Walmart Pay – An Alternative

Walmart Pay is your best and only alternative to Samsung Pay for mobile payment at Walmart. You can use Walmart Pay by downloading the Walmart App. You can download the app through the Apple Store or Google Play.

Once the app is downloaded, you simply add a payment method such as a credit card to the app. Then take your mobile device to Walmart and shop as normal. When you checkout, scan the QR code at the register when you are ready to pay. This scan will authorize payment through the app and the checkout process is complete. Walmart Pay can be used at self-checkout or the regular checkout with a cashier.

Keep in mind that the Walmart App does much more than just pay for merchandise at the store. Its primary uses are to shop on or to place a pickup/delivery grocery order. In other words, many people will get much more use out of the app than just using it as a payment method. Yes, it’s not Samsung Pay that many readers likely would hope to use at Walmart, but it’s a decent alternative.
