Customers using Express Money Services will enjoy a dramatically faster, easier and more convenient experience using the Walmart App. Previously, customers needed to fill out lengthy money transfer paperwork in stores; now, this work can be done while at home or on-the-go using the Walmart App.
Once at the store, customers can now fast-track through a dedicated Express Lane to quickly complete their transaction. With the help of the app, they simply scan a QR code at the debit reader with their smartphone and pay the cashier; receipts and transaction details are saved electronically – a feature Walmart is introducing with the aim of making future transactions even more convenient. The app upgrade also allows customers to send pickup information to receivers through email or text message.

Walmart introduced its money transfer service, Walmart2Walmart, three years ago with the goal of bringing customers dramatically lower costs and a simpler money transfer experience. Since that time, millions of Walmart customers have racked up more than half a billion dollars in fee savings using this service, according to the company.
