Walmart will let customers pay their bills or fund prepaid accounts with cash in its stores nationwide.
The discount giant is collaborating with InComm Payments to make the payment tech provider’s Vanilla Direct financial network available nationwide at more than 4,700 stores. Customers will have access to more than 15,000 billers and account providers participating in the Vanilla Direct network. Financial service providers come from across a variety of sectors, such as utility, telecommunication, tolling, banking, rental companies, and insurance providers.
Consumers can pay bills and fund a variety of account types at Walmart’s customer service desk or in-store Walmart Money Center by scanning a barcode tied to their account (either via a paper copy or digitally on their mobile device) and completing their payment with cash. Funds are then transferred electronically through a single consolidated settlement.Chain Store Age
