Walmart App Connects Online and In-Store Experiences

Now more than ever, apps have become ubiquitous — and Walmart offers its own version that serves more than just as a shopping tool. The Walmart App, available for phones running Android 5.0 or later and Apple devices with iOS 10.0 or later, provides personalized convenience and savings through features that integrate online and in-store experiences. Customers can pay directly with their smartphone via credit or debit cards saved to Walmart digital wallet or with gift cards purchased directly through Walmart, tracking all their purchases seamlessly. The app also offers helpful in-store services, such as an Item Finder map that helps shoppers easily locate their product of interest, with more information or browse extended assortment online. Customers can save items to their cart, check out and make returns all from one central place.

Walmart describes their app as a life hack for any Walmart-ing need, featuring features such as sharing grocery lists between family members to reduce duplicate shopping trips, scanning barcodes instantly to get pricing and availability details, creating lists of favorite products to buy later, as well as subscribing through regular price subscriptions to thousands of essentials such as pet food supplements diapers paper towels that will be sent directly to homes on an infrequent or regular schedule.

The Walmart app includes a Virtual Garage feature which gives customers easy, consolidated access to their car’s service history and details. This link connects customers to auto care appointments at Walmart Auto Care Centers as well as scheduling oil changes and tire rotations; tire selection through Walmart catalog listings makes finding tires even simpler; customers can even schedule road hazard warranties and flat tire repair within the app itself!

Walmart App allows customers to reserve an appointment for pickup at their nearest store, or choose Grocery Delivery with fees depending on their zip code and order size. Once selected, Walmart sends out an Ready for Pickup email, with associates gathering ordered items, packing them into bags and bringing them directly to customer’s car or home. They can view progress from their app throughout this process as well as check in before their Grocery Pickup timeframe to ensure everything will be ready upon their arrival.

In addition to grocery shopping, the Walmart App can also be used to shop for furniture, electronics, appliances and clothing – as well as gifts and decor for holidays and special occasions. Walmart+ members can utilize Scan & Go feature of the Walmart App to speed up checkouts by scanning item barcodes to add them to their cart before holding their phone over QR codes at register for payment. Scan & Go is one of four benefits of membership offered by Walmart+ along with free shipping orders of $75 or more placed online, free same-day store delivery service and member prices for fuel purchases made within two hours!
