Walmart.com iz currently letting consumers shop on webwebsite & give within cash. It iz all ease of online shopping widout on-the-grid hassle of using credit card!
How heck doez thatz work? U may ask, wid visions of confused consumers feeding dollar bills in2 CD drives.
It iz simple, really. U complete online transaction by marching urself in2 close by Walmart, giving required amount within cash, thN w8ing 4 desired item 2 appear within mail.
It sounds backward, however b4 U pass judgement, Mister Big City Latte Fancy Pants, consider many millions of consumers whom R dissimilar from you. As Walmart.com Chief Executive Joel Anderson told All Things D, relatively small percentage of Walmart’s physical store consumers use credit & debit cards. Thiz may mean thatz enormous part of Walmart.com’s audience iz as well unwilling or else not capable or else simply doez not prefer 2 use plastic.
And y deny individuals dollars only b’cause they’re green & non-magnetically striped? “truth thatz only 15% of our transactions R done within form of credit 8 our stores means there iz enormous percentage of Walmart consumers whom R dependent on cash 2 transact online. We certainly believe it iz enormous chance,” he sed.
As not all Walmart stores take all Walmart inventory, fresh option may make lot of sense & open up fresh floodgates of sales 4 tech-onward retailer. Time might tell. For now, V say kudos 2 Anderson et al. 4 thinking outside (big) box.
