7-Eleven mobile wallet offers contactless payment option


Convenience store chain 7-Eleven has introduced the 7-Eleven mobile wallet, a contactless way for customers to pay at participating U.S. stores.

Customers can access the wallet through the 7-Eleven app and securely load funds to use at checkout using cash, debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay and prepaid 7-Eleven gift cards, according to a press release. Cash must be loaded at the store but all other payment methods can be loaded in the app without a loading or transaction fees or incurring fees from credit cards charge.

First-time wallet users can earn 2,000 7Rewards points for a limited time when they load $20 into their 7-Eleven Wallet. Customers must have a verified phone number and a verified zip code linked to their 7Rewards account to use the 7-Eleven Wallet and access savings.

“The 7-Eleven Wallet meets the needs of customers looking for convenient, contactless ways to shop and pay during this unprecedented global pandemic,” Joe DePinto, 7-Eleven president and CEO, said in the release. “Cash customers want to participate in the growing digital payment ecosystem. 7-Eleven Wallet gives them access to touchless payment along with deep value loyalty offers.”
