OfficeMax Google Wallet offer smartphone shopping
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (10/5/11)--OfficeMax, a provider of office supplies, technology and services, has opened checkout terminals in more than 100 stores that let customers pay with Google Wallet through their mobile phones. Office Max is a CUNA Strategic Services provider. These new contactless payment terminals, powered by MasterCard PayPass, are available in OfficeMax stores throughout the greater New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., markets. OfficeMax said it is the first office supply retailer to implement the full range of Google Wallet features--payment, coupon redemption and loyalty programs. It’s also the first national office supply retailer to accept mobile payments through Google Wallet, the company said. Google Wallet, which is available on Sprint Nexus 4G phones, is an app that turns consumers’ phones into wallets. The app securely stores virtual versions of a consumer’s payment and rewards credentials, which can be used in stores with a mobile phone. Google Wallet employs near field communication (NFC) to make payments secure by tapping an NFC-enabled phone on any MasterCard PayPass-enabled terminal at checkout. The new mobile payment terminals at OfficeMax featuring PayPass Tap & Go will accept payments through Google Wallet and other contactless payment devices with radio frequency identification and NFC.
