Walmart claims to be the only retailer to offer its own payment solution that works with any iOS or Android device in a checkout lane.

It is connected to major credit, debit and prepaid cards, as well as Walmart gift cards.

The service can be accessed through the Walmart mobile app, which is claimed to be ranked among the top three retail apps in the Google and Apple app stores.

More than 20 million customers actively use the app each month.

The Walmart app comes with features that enable checking in to pick-up an online order at a Walmart store, refilling pharmacy prescriptions and finding an item’s store location.
