Walmart expands app testing

By Retail Technology | Friday January 12 2018

Walmart is expanding a test of its Mobile Express Scan & Go app to an additional 100 stores across the US

Scan & Go is currently being tested in a few select markets, including Dallas-Fort Worth, Orlando and Northwest Arkansas, and is expanding to stores in 33 states across the US.

When customers launch the app, it automatically lists participating stores nearby. The app allows customers to scan and bag items, including produce, while they shop and pay directly with their phones. There’s no waiting in line at the register. 

The app is available on both Android and iOS devices and, just like shopping with Walmart Pay, it securely stores credit or debit card information for fast and easy checkout. Once customers are done shopping and have paid for their items, they simply walk through the Mobile Express lane on their way out.

As part of the test, some Walmart stores have been outfitted with Scan & Go kiosks where customers can pick up easy-to-use handheld devices. This allows them to try out the service before downloading it to their phones.
