Walmart to offer cash option for online purchases

For consumers who want to shop online, but either don’t have access to a credit card or don’t want to use one online due to security concerns, Walmart has a new option.

Walmart will offer its online shoppers a "pay with cash" option. Shoppers select their items at and then select the cash option at checkout. Then, the customer must bring an email receipt with their order number to a Walmart store within 48 hours and pay with cash. After payment is received, the customer can either receive their items shipped to the store or to their preferred address.

The program plays to Walmart’s key customer, a low-income consumer who may have little access to credit cards and banking options.
