Tesco has launched Tesco Pay+, the mobile payments app, which replaces PayQwiq from Tesco. The move looks to make the shopping trip more convenient and more rewarding for customers looking to pay using their smartphone.
On average, a transaction using the Tesco Pay+ digital wallet takes place every three seconds at a Tesco store and since its rollout, earlier this year, the app has amassed over a quarter of a million users. Launched in 2015, the digital wallet service has been progressively rolled out across Tesco’s UK stores, with hundreds of thousands of customers having downloaded and using the app on a regular basis to vastly improve their checkout experience when shopping at Tesco.
The decision to rebrand the digital wallet app to Tesco Pay+ marks Tesco’s commitment to offering customers a unique shopping experience across all UK stores. Customers using Tesco Pay+ will automatically collect Clubcard points for every transaction made at Tesco. As an extra little help, customers who use Tesco Pay+ will collect one extra Clubcard point for every four pound spent in Tesco, making Pay+ one of the most rewarding way to pay in Tesco. Offer expires 14 January 2018.
Mark Loch, Tesco Digital Wallet and Group Payments Director said, “the world is changing rapidly around us. How customers interact with their shopping experience, how they manage their money, and how they determine value, are developing all of the time. We are proud that we constantly invest in enhancing the shopping experience so that our customers receive a unique and exceptional service. Our digital wallet has proved to be hugely popular with our customers and we are confident that Tesco Pay+, with its fantastic capability, will continue to transform the shopping journey offering little helps to customers every time they shop in Tesco.”
