Starbucks, Walgreens to add Visa Checkout as payment option
Visa Inc said several big merchants including Starbucks Corp and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc have started accepting its digital payments service, Visa Checkout.
Visa Checkout was launched in July 2014 and now Visa has more than 10 million consumer accounts that’s allows shoppers to store their payment information and make payments without leaving the merchant’s website. MasterCard Inc launched a similar product, MasterPass, in 2013.
The NFL Shop and HSN Inc’s home shopping network are also among the latest merchants partnering with Visa Checkout. Walmart.com will begin supporting Visa Checkout this year, Visa said on Tuesday.
Other large merchants with online operations, including Best Buy Co Inc, Gap Inc and Staples Inc, already accept Visa Checkout.
