SET STORE IN: Kohl’s Pay allows shoppers at the US chain to make in-app mobile payments

Customers at US department store chain Kohl’s can now make purchases by scanning a QR code at the point of sale using Kohl’s Pay, a mobile payment feature that has been integrated into the retailer’s existing mobile app.

The nationwide service allows “more than 25m active cardholders” to pay for purchases with their Kohl’s Charge card directly from a mobile phone.

“Kohl’s Pay also brings customers the added convenience of seamlessly applying their Kohl’s offers, Kohl’s Cash and Yes2You Rewards with a single transaction right from the mobile device at checkout,” the retailer says. “Additionally, every Kohl’s Pay transaction is stored on customers’ mobile devices, allowing them the opportunity to easily make a return or an exchange right from the Kohl’s app.

“To use Kohl’s Pay in-store, customers can simply save their Kohl’s Charge information to Kohl’s Pay within the Kohl’s app on their iOS or Android device. To pay for their purchase at checkout, customers can launch the Kohl’s app and select Kohl’s Pay from the menu options to bring up the QR code reader.

“Once a QR code appears on the customer display at point of sale, 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.”

“The Kohl’s mobile app, with more than 14m downloads to date, is available to all shoppers,” the retailer adds.

“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,” says Ratnakar Lavu, Kohl’s chief technology officer.
