Walmart is introducing a new service in which its cash-only customers can buy its much broader array of online products. There’s no stuffing dollar bills into the computer. Instead, customers order online, use the “cash” button at checkout and are immediately emailed a number. The customer must go to at store and pay for the order within 48 hours. Once the money is received, the product will be shipped.
It’s another example of how hard Walmart has worked during the recession to reconnect with its long-time core customers.
