Kohl’s has integrated its private label credit card and loyalty program with a contactless, one-click payment option via Apple Pay. Currently live in 250 stores, the retailer expects to offer this functionality nationwide by the end of May 2016.
When paying in stores, customers hold their iPhone 6 or iPhone SE near the contactless reader with a finger on Touch ID to pay and receive their Yes2You Rewards. On Apple Watch, shoppers double-click the side button and hold the face of the Apple Watch up to the reader. Kohl’s first introduced the Apple Pay option in June 2015.
“Kohl’s is blending the physical and digital shopping experiences in more ways than ever before,” said Ratnakar Lavu, Kohl’s CTO in a statement. “We are continuing to innovate in mobile to provide an easy, seamless shopping experience, whether it’s our mobile payment offerings, the features and functionality on Kohl’s mobile app or the Kohls.com experience on smartphones and tablets.”
