December 04, 2020

IRVING, Texas—No pin pads to touch, less cash to handle, and an easy, contactless way to pay—that’s the 7‑Eleven Wallet. 7‑Eleven’s new app-based mobile wallet offers all customers—including those who would like to load cash—a contactless, convenient way to pay nationally at participating U.S. stores.

Easily accessible in the 7‑Eleven app, 7‑Eleven Wallet customers can securely load funds using cash, debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay and prepaid 7‑Eleven gift cards. Cash must be loaded in store at the register, while other payment methods can be loaded in the app. 7‑Eleven Wallet users are not charged any loading or transaction fees and incur no interest fees.

“7‑Eleven Wallet meets the needs of customers looking for convenient, contactless ways to shop and pay during this unprecedented global pandemic,” said 7‑Eleven President and CEO Joe DePinto in a press 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.”

Built to be an easy, contactless way to pay, the 7‑Eleven Wallet is the latest feature in the 7‑Eleven app. Members are able to earn and shop with points, get exclusive offers, redeem rewards for free merchandise and pay in one easy step, simply by scanning the barcode in the app. Customers using the company’s Mobile Checkout shopping experience in select markets or the Fuel Loyalty program at 7‑Eleven branded gas stations to save money on gas in participating cities can also take advantage of the 7‑Eleven Wallet perks.
