Walmart has implemented the CheckFreePay service from Fiserv, enabling customers to pay bills in person at all Walmart locations in the US. Using the service, customers can pay household bills, such as their utility, mobile phone, auto loan, insurance and credit card bills, at any one of the retailer’s 3,755 domestic locations, including Walmart SuperCentres and Neighbourhood Markets.
The CheckFreePay service from Fiserv gives customers the ability to pay bills from more than 2,500 companies. Payments can be made at the Walmart MoneyCentre or customer service desk using cash or a pin-based debit card. Standard payments are delivered to the biller within three business days, and NextDay payments are delivered to the biller on the next business day. A receipt is provided as assurance of payment.
“Walmart is continually searching for new ways to save our customers money and improve their daily lives,” said Jane Thompson, president of Walmart Financial Services. “Already, customers look to our stores as a place to make everyday purchases at low prices. Offering our customers the convenience of walk-in bill payments at Walmart helps them simplify the management of their day-to-day finances.”
