Kohl’s Launches Mobile Payments Tied to Private Label Card
Kohl’s on Oct. 5 launched a mobile payment option that “integrates the Kohl’s Charge private label credit card into the popular Kohl’s mobile app,” the retail chain said.
Called Kohl’s Pay, the service enables some 25 million U.S. holders of that private label card to pay for in-store purchases directly from mobile devices. The service also allows shoppers to apply their Kohl’s offers, Kohl’s Cash and Yes2You Rewards during transactions. “Additionally, every Kohl’s Pay transaction is stored on customers’ mobile devices allowing them the opportunity to easily make a return or an exchange right from the Kohl’s app,” the retailer said.
Kohl’s Pay works with Apple and Android devices. Consumers have downloaded the Kohl’s app more than 14 million times, the retailer said.
“Kohl’s Pay truly redefines convenience for our loyal Kohl’s Charge customers by simplifying the checkout and payment experience, making it easier than ever to shop in store this holiday season,” said Ratnakar Lavu, Kohl’s chief technology officer.
