With Paychecks Coming on
Cyber Monday, Walmart Makes it Easy to Pay Cash for Online Orders
This year, three times as many Americans will be getting a paycheck on Cyber Monday, which comes on the first day of the month this year.* That’s good news for the millions of Walmart customers who come to Walmart stores to cash their checks each week, who can take advantage of Walmart.com’s Pay with Cash program on Cyber Monday. Walmart was the first national retailer to introduce a convenient way for customers to order online and pay for the order with cash in their local store without a banking service or a credit, debit or prepaid card. Last year, Pay with Cash usage spiked during the period between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and so far this year, Walmart has seen usage at its highest on the first of the month. As Walmart continues to combine digital and physical retail, customers have more options and opportunities to participate in Cyber Monday and holiday shopping online this year.
More Ways to Save with Every Day Free Shipping to Home
or a Store
All year long, Walmart offers free shipping to customers’ homes on orders totaling $50 or more and free pickup at Walmart stores. Additionally, Walmart offers free same-day pickup at a local store for more than 70,000 items, one of the fastest ways to receive an online order without paying a delivery fee.
New – Mobile-friendly web site experience
Mobile traffic to Walmart’s smartphone app has nearly quadrupled since last year. Just in time for the holidays, Walmart is well positioned to serve mobile customers. Walmart.com’s new web site design was built for mobile devices and makes holiday shopping faster, with tools to discover new products through personalization and enhanced search.
