Walmart Pay is gaining on Apple

By Gina Acosta - 11/08/2017

Walmart’s payment app is close to surpassing Apple Pay in usage for mobile payments in the United States.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Daniel Eckert, senior vice president for services and digital acceleration at Walmart, says two-thirds of the customers who try Walmart Pay also use it a second time within 21 days, giving him confidence Walmart Pay will surpass Apple Pay in the U.S. in terms of use by shoppers in stores where they’re accepted.

“If daily enrollments don’t slow down, I think that’s pretty well in the cards shortly,” Eckert said Eckert. “I would have to imagine we are getting pretty close.”

Eckert says Walmart Pay is now available in 4,774 stores and the retailer is enrolling tens of thousands of new users a day.
