Walmart customers will be able to use Chase Pay to make a purchase whether they are buying home goods, new gear for school or holiday gifts. With this partnership Walmart will start taking Chase Pay via Walmart.com, as well as from Walmart mobile application and when shopping in stores using the Walmart Pay app.
For Walmart this initiative gives their customers more flexibility. “We are excited about the opportunity to provide our customers with even greater convenience and value to our Walmart Pay app while expanding our relationship with Chase,” said Mike Cook, senior vice president and assistant treasurer for Walmart. “Adding Chase Pay as an option within Walmart Pay and online will create an enhanced experience for our customers.”
This comes on the heels of the announcement that over 5,000 Walmart and Sam’s Club stores located within the U.S. will process payments through ChaseNet, a closed network, created for the bank. The same holds true for Sam’s Club ecommerce as well. ChaseNet and Chase Pay are slated to roll out in Walmart in 2017.
Right now Chase Pay is available via some merchant websites, and Chase will go live with their mobile payment system, which can be used at the registers and apps, later in the year.
