Want to Skip the Line at Walmart? There’s an App for That

Feb 28, 2017

Wait in line no more at Walmart. The company has updated its app to let customers skip the line at its Pharmacy or Money Services desks in Walmart stores, TechCrunch reports.

Shoppers can fill out paperwork and their details on the app and will then be able to join a newly created 'Express Lane'. The best part? The lane essentially lets you cut in line, giving users priority over customers who are already waiting.

Payments will be handled by Walmart Pay, the company's own mobile payments app, and customers will receive an e-receipt via the app once transactions are completed at both the Pharmacy and Money Services desks. The company says that millions of customers already use Walmart Pay to transfer money.

The lanes are expected to be introduced this March, so keep your eyes peeled.
