Target Will Accept Mobile and Contactless Payments Soon
Target 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 CIO, in a blog post.
Shoppers 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 will tap their contactless card on the reader screen to pay.
