Walmart claims to be the only U.S. retailer to offer its own payment solution for iOS and Android devices. To register, shoppers should visit any register at participating stores, open the Walmart app and choose Walmart Pay. Once the phone’s camera is activated, the customer should scan the barcode displayed at the register while their checkout process is underway. Once the associate scans and bags the items, payment is processed and an eReceipt is sent to the app for the customer to view at any time.

“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,” Walmart senior vice president of services Daniel Eckert said in a statement. “The service opens the door to new and better ways we can serve the 140 million customers who shop our stores each week.”

Walmart’s app is used by more than 20 million customers, and it ranks among the top three retail apps in the Google and Apple app stores. In addition to Walmart Pay, it offers check-in to pick up online orders at stores, prescription refills and assistance in finding an item within a specific store location.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Walmart has 11,527 stores under 63 banners in 28 countries along with e-commerce websites in 11 countries. It had fiscal year 2016 revenue of $482 billion and employs more than 2.3 million associates worldwide.
