Tesco to add digital wallet to its smartphone app

UK’s biggest grocer trialling scan as you shop.

Most payments watchers believe that mobile wallets will not succeed until they are neutral and can house all payments and loyalty cards.

Tesco obviously doesn’t agree.

It’s reported to be trialling a wallet that sits inside its current app.

This will enable users to add any payment card and then scan items as they journey round the store – and pay at the end.

The new feature will sit alongside other features of the app, like Click & Collect, in-store maps and Clubcard coupons.

Tesco has 17m Clubcard loyalty scheme holders in the UK.
