Walmart Rolls Out Money Transfer Services to More States
BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is rolling out its Express Money Services in 23 more states, with a similar experience for pharmacy customers to launch later this year.
The following states will now have access to the service: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Express Money Services is a new feature in the Walmart app that combines with in-store Express Lanes to help expedite customers’ money services transactions.
Once at the store, customers can fast-track through a dedicated Express Lane to complete their transaction by scanning a QR code with the app at the debit card reader and then paying the cashier. Receipts and transaction details are saved electronically, and the app upgrade allows customers to easily send pickup information to receive via email or text.
"The new experience is faster for both associates and customers," said Kirsty Ward, vice president for Walmart Services. "And with our offer to send funds fee-free via Walmart2Walmart using Express Money Services, there's no better time to try our unique service."
