Chase announced Thursday (Nov. 3) that retailing giant Walmart will now accept Chase Pay. In a press release, Chase said Chase Pay will be accepted on Walmart’s website, within Walmart’s mobile app and in stores via the Walmart Pay app.
The announcement comes after Chase and Walmart expanded their relationship last month, announcing Chase Visa card transactions at more than 5,000 Walmart and Sam’s Club stores in the U.S. and Sam’s Club online will process via ChaseNet, Chase’s closed-loop network. ChaseNet and ChasePay will launch with Walmart next year.
“We are excited about the opportunity to provide our customers with even greater convenience and value to our Walmart Pay app, while expanding our relationship with Chase,” said Mike Cook, senior vice president and assistant treasurer for Walmart, in the press release. “Adding Chase Pay as an option within Walmart Pay and online will create an enhanced experience for our customers.”
Walmart is joining a growing list of merchants that are gearing up to accept Chase Pay. Chase Pay is already live on a handful of merchant’s websites. Later this year, Chase said Chase Pay will be available for mobile payments at participating merchant registers and as a form of payment in select merchant apps later in 2016.
“We’re delighted to strengthen our ties with Walmart to deliver a seamless payment experience to our mutual customers,” said Jennifer Roberts, president of strategic alliances and loyalty solutions for Chase, also in the press release. “Walmart is a great partner that will provide customers yet another way to use Chase Pay for everyday shopping.”
In September, Chase inked a multi-year agreement with electronics retailer Best Buy in which it will accept Chase Pay in its stores, on its website and on the Best Buy app.
