Marks & Spencer has announced that it has introduced its mobile payment service to approximately 310 stores across the UK.
Customers in Dover, Falkirk, Belfast, Aberystwyth, Canterbury, Carlisle will be able to access the ‘Mobile Pay Go’ service.
The expansion is part of the retailer’s transformation plan to create digitally connected stores under its ‘Never the Same Again’ programme, the retailer said.
Helen Milford, director of stores at M&S, said, "This rollout takes our increasingly popular Mobile Pay Go technology nationwide for the first time, allowing more customers to enjoy a seamless checkout-free experience through the M&S app.
"With more customers starting to return to the workplace, this provides a quick and convenient lunchtime solution – making it easy to pop in, grab your items and be on your way.”
Since March of this year, the mobile payment service earned 10,000 new regular users as customers opted for contact-free shopping amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ‘Mobile Pay Go’ service can be accessed via the M&S app and is compatible with both iOS and Andriod devices, the retailer added.
Customers can use the feature for a swift and checkout-free shopping experience for purchases up to £30.
