Target Developing Mobile Wallet

As a Target fanboy who has really taken a liking to their mobile apps, I’ll be following this with some interest, although NFC strikes me as being more practical than scanned codes.

Target does not accept any type of mobile wallet in stores, but takes Apple Pay in its mobile application. The Minneapolis-based retailer is planning to integrate its wallet into its existing mobile application and does not intend to employ the wireless near-field communication technology used by the likes of Apple Pay and Android Pay, one of the sources added. It is leaning toward using QR code technology, used by Starbucks Corp and Wal-Mart, which allows customers to scan a code at the payment terminal, the sources said.
