Tesco Rolls Out PayQwig To All Of Its Stores After Positive Pilot

Tesco, the U.K. supermarket operator, is extending mobile pay app PayQwiq to all of the Tesco stores around the U.K.

In a press release, Tesco said the move is in response to positive feedback from customers during the initial rollout of the service. PayQwiq, which is available for both Android and iOS smartphones, lets customers pay and collect Clubcard points via their mobile device. To ensure customers can use PayQwiq to pay for their weekly shop and more, PayQwiq has a single transaction limit of £250, noted Tesco. The app also provides customers with their transaction history and displays their Clubcard points balance in a way that customers can easily see it.

“PayQwiq offers customers a simple, convenient and secure way to pay that helps them save time at the checkout and collect Clubcard points with one simple scan of their smartphone. Since the initial rollout of PayQwiq, customer feedback has been very positive, and we are delighted to make PayQwiq available to all Tesco customers across the U.K.,” said Mark Loch, digital wallet and group payments strategy director, in the press release announcing the move.

Between now and May 7, new PayQwiq customers downloading the app will receive 50 Clubcard points with each of their first 10 PayQwiq transactions.
