Target keeps mobile pay in-house, but for how long?

Target keeps mobile pay in-house, but for how long?

In other words, Target is not the only retailer to have its own mobile payment system, but the retailer can now reap the benefits of having its own system. Soon, you'll even be able to store and use Target gift cards via Wallet, too.

With the introduction of Wallet, Target customers will now have the option of seamlessly checking out their in-store purchases with the use of their smartphones.

Target is touting checkout speed and savings, which includes the application of weekly ad coupons along with the Cartwheel deals and a 5% REDcard everyday discount, in promoting Wallet.

It appears that Target is still not keen on accepting Apple Pay as a mode of payment in its onsite stores.

While Target continues to resist supporting Apple Pay in retail stores, despite an erroneous customer support tweet earlier this year, the company does support Apple's payment platform in-app for online orders.

Target today has announced a new Wallet feature for its iOS app. That is what makes the retailer's announcement of Wallet, its mobile payments system, one that folks might want to pay close attention to.

Target's decision to join the mobile wallet club is a good one, albeit a little later than some others.

Forrester predicts that by 2019, mobile payments will account for just 1 percent of all payment transactions.

The solution is "four times faster than other payment types", according to Target, though that refers to other payment types available in Target since the retailer has been a holdout against comparably fast NFC payments from Apple Pay and Android Pay, a reluctance that dates to Target's membership in the now defunct MCX, a merchant-led mobile payment consortium.
