Walmart Adds MasterPass as Online Payment Method
Jan. 7, 2016
Walmart will add MasterCard’s digital wallet as a payment method on all its domestic online properties this year. Sometime in 2016, consumers who load their credit-card information into the MasterPass digital wallet can pay with one touch on Walmart.com, the Walmart mobile Website and the Walmart shopping app. Like competitors PayPal and Visa Checkout, MasterPass enables shoppers to select it as a payment option at checkout and complete the transaction without entering personal information and without having to establish an account at individual retailers.
“We have enjoyed a longstanding business relationship with Walmart and are pleased to expand this into the online and mobile channels through MasterPass,” said Michael Cyr, group executive for U.S. Market Development with MasterCard. “With MasterPass, consumers can go online, place their order and pay with just a click. The burden of entering delivery and billing information is eliminated, further enhancing the Walmart online customer experience.”
MasterCard said MasterPass is an online payment option at 250,000 online merchants in 24 countries. Walmart joins Bass Pro Shops, 1 800 Flowers, J Crew and others as brands that offer MasterPass payment online.
