Kohl’s, a US-based department store retail chain, has launched its own mobile payment platform, known as Kohl’s Pay, which will enhance payment experience for Kohl’s Charge cardholders.
The new app integrates the Kohl’s Charge private label credit card into Kohl’s mobile app and enables over 25 million active cardholders to pay for their in-store purchases using their Kohl’s Charge card directly from their smartphone.
Furthermore, every transaction is stored on customers’ mobile devices, which makes returns and exchanges easier.
In order to use Kohl’s Pay in store, Kohl’s customers can simply save their Kohl’s Charge information to Kohl’s Pay within the Kohl’s App on their iOS or Android device.
At checkout, customers will have to launch the Kohl’s App and select Kohl’s Pay from the menu options to bring up the Kohl’s Pay QR code reader.
As soon as a QR code appears on the customer display at point of sale (PoS), customers can scan the code using their mobile device, apply their savings offers and Kohl’s Cash then tap approve to complete their transaction using Kohl’s Pay.
Kohl’s chief technology officer Ratnakar Lavu said: “Kohl’s Pay truly redefines convenience for our loyal Kohl’s Charge customers by simplifying the checkout and payment experience – making it easier than ever to shop in store this holiday season.
“We’re combining value and convenience by bringing together the incredible savings opportunities that our customers love like Kohl’s Cash and our Yes2You Rewards loyalty program with the ability to pay with a Kohl’s Charge, all from your mobile device.”
