More about this Target related news –
On the 22nd of January 2019, Target, which is considered as the most convenient shopping place for many Americans, has announced to make things much easier in terms of payment.
The stores will soon accept Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay as well as “contactless cards” from Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover in all stores.
“Offering guests more ways to conveniently and quickly pay is just another way we’re making it easier than ever to shop Target,” said Mike McNamara, Target’s chief information officer.
In 2017, the company launched the popular Wallet feature in the Target App for mobile payment and more. With Wallet, guests can use their phones to pay with a Target REDcard credit or debit card—hello, 5 percent off all purchases!—and save with Cartwheel deals all in one fast and easy scan at checkout. Guests can also use Wallet to access Weekly Ad coupons and to store and redeem their Target GiftCards. (No wonder we’ve already had nearly 150 million Wallet scans at checkout!)
In addition to providing more easy ways for guests to pay, Target also offers the widest breadth of pickup and delivery options in retail. That includes free 2-Day Shipping on hundreds of thousands of items for REDcard holders, Same-Day Delivery with Shipt, Drive Up, Order Pickup and more.
Because we know a Target Run done easy is a Target Run done right.

Here’s how it works –
Guests who have mobile payment set up in their iPhone, Samsung Galaxy phone or Android phone or wearable devices will be able to hold their device near the card reader at checkout to complete their purchase.
Those using contactless credit or debit cards—ones with a sideways wave symbol (like a Wi-Fi symbol)—will, similarly, tap their contactless card on the reader screen to pay.
Apple and other retailers –
Apple Pay is rolling out to Target stores now, according to Apple, which says it will be available in all 1,850 of its U.S. retail locations “in the coming weeks.”
Also signing up to Apple Pay are fast food chains Taco Bell and Jack in the Box; Speedway convenience stores; and Hy-Vee supermarkets in the Midwest.
Speedway customers can use Apple Pay at all of its approximately 3,000 locations across the Midwest, East Coast and Southeast from today, according to Apple, as well as at Hy-Vee stores’ more than 245 outlets in the Midwest.
It says the payment tech is also rolling out to more than 7,000 Taco Bell and 2,200 Jack in the Box locations “in the next few months.”
Back in the summer Apple announced it had signed up long time holdout CVS, with the pharmacy introducing Apple Pay across its ~8,400 standalone locations last year.
