Wal-Mart to accept Chase Pay
Chase announced Thursday that Wal-Mart will accept Chase Pay on Walmart.com, within the retailer’s mobile application, and in its stores through the Wal-Mart Pay app, according to a press release.
The companies last month expanded their relationship by announcing that Chase Visa card transactions at 5,000-plus Walmart and Sam’s Club locations in the U.S. and at Sam’s Club ecommerce will process through ChaseNet, the bank’s closed-loop network. Both ChaseNet and Chase Pay are scheduled to go live with Wal-Mart in 2017.
“We are excited about the opportunity to provide our customers with even greater convenience and value to our Wal-Mart Pay app while expanding our relationship with Chase,” said Mike Cook, senior vice president and assistant treasurer for Wal-Mart. “Adding Chase Pay as an option within Wal-Mart Pay and online will create an enhanced experience for our customers.”
Wal-Mart joins a list of high-profile retailers poised to accept Chase Pay, which is currently live on select merchant websites. Chase Pay will launch for mobile payment at participating merchant registers and as a form of payment in selected merchant apps later this year.
“We’re delighted to strengthen our ties with Wal-Mart to deliver a seamless payment experience to our mutual customers,” said Jennifer Roberts, president of strategic alliances and loyalty solutions for Chase. “Wal-Mart is a great partner that will provide customers yet another way to use Chase Pay for everyday shopping.”
