Personal computers don’t have those nifty little cash slots that the self-service supermarket check out boasts, so when consumers want to pay for their online purchases, they need a credit or debit card to complete the transaction.
Until now. Mega-retailer Walmart’s solved the problems for its cash-only shoppers by launching “Pay With Cash” for its online customers.
How it works: Shoppers find what they want online and order it choosing “cash” as their preferred payment. They print out or copy down the order number and head over to their nearest Walmart bricks-and-mortar store with the cash and pay for the purchase at any cash register.
Walmart then ships your order to your home or the store – whichever you choose.
So why not just shop for your merchandise at the store in the first place? The store could be out of stock or there may be an online special you want to purchase.
The only catch: You’ve got just 48 hours to pay up.
