Walmart Pay lets you use any debit, credit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card to shop. When you’re in a checkout lane, you can fire up the store’s mobile app, choose ‘Walmart Pay’ and scan the QR code at the register using your camera. An assistant will scan and bag your items, and you’ll receive an electronic receipt on your phone.
