Walmart is tapping the Walmart Pay app to add completely contact free checkout at any register.
Shoppers previously had to touch a screen to self-check out.
That method is being replace by using their phone to scan a QR code, which will sync Walmart Pay, allowing checkout via the app.
Pickup customers also can use a similar method, by driving up and opening their trunk without a required signature.
“We’re adding another layer of safety for our customers and associates,” stated Janey Whiteside, executive vice president and chief customer officer at Walmart in a blog post.
