MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Customers at more than 120 Walmart locations across Alabama will be able to checkout using their smartphones.

Customers started using Walmart Pay on Thursday, Al.com (https://bit.ly/1UlK7Qd) reported. The service also rolled out in three other southern states including Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi, company spokeswoman Molly Blakeman said.

“We can’t wait to hear what our customers and associates in Alabama think of Walmart Pay. The service was built to make shopping easier and faster, something we know our customers want,” said Daniel Eckert, senior vice president, Services, Walmart U.S.

Walmart Pay is already available in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. It will soon be available nationwide.

The service was announced in December. It makes Walmart the only retailer to offer its own payment solution that works with any iOS or Android device at any checkout lane with any major credit, debit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card - all through the Walmart mobile app.



Walmart Pay takes only three quick steps.

Here’s how it works:

- Open: Visit any register, open the Walmart app and choose Walmart Pay. Activate the camera.

- Scan: At any time during checkout, simply scan the code displayed at the register. Walmart Pay is now connected.

- Done: Associate scans and bags the items and it’s done. An eReceipt will be sent to the app and can be viewed 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. The service opens the door to new and better ways we can serve the 140 million customers who shop our stores each week.”
