Oklahoma is one of the three states to first launch “Walmart Pay” on Wednesday.

According to Walmart officials, the free mobile payment option is a safe, easy and convenient way for customers to pay with their smartphones in Walmart stores, eliminating the need to carry a wallet or purse.

"Walmart Pay" works on any iOS or Android device, at any checkout lane and with any major credit, debit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card, all via the Walmart mobile app.

Checkout using Walmart Pay happens in three steps:

  1. Open: Visit any register, open the Walmart app and choose Walmart Pay. Activate the camera.
  2. Scan: At any time during checkout, simply scan the code displayed at the register. Walmart Pay is now connected.
  3. 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 - and it is even easier to save money, because one click receipts can be added to Walmart’s Savings Catcher.

Officials said setting up Walmart Pay is easy and is part of the existing Walmart app used by millions of customers. This service is the newest example of how Walmart is leading through technology to connect customers with convenience.
