An Atlanta-based payments technology company is partnering with two of the biggest names in virtual payments to bring touchless checkout to CVS pharmacies across the country.
InComm announced Thursday the company had released QR code technology customers can use to checkout via their PayPal or Venmo accounts without touching a keypad or signing a receipt. The technology will be implemented at all CVS stores, more than 8,000 in the U.S., nationwide in the fourth quarter this year.
“In the midst of Covid-19, we have seen an incredible acceleration of digital payments and touch-free payments,” Mark Britto, executive vice president and chief product officer of PayPal, said in a statement. “Companies of all types and sizes are looking for ways to maintain the safety of their customers and employees, especially through touch-free experiences like curbside pickup and enhanced online shopping. QR codes complement these and provide retailers an additional payment method that furthers this touch-free mission and continues the growth of digital payments for all partners in the ecosystem.”
