CVS Rolls Out Mobile Payment Platform

CVS Health has rolled out CVS Pay, a mobile payment solution, at CVS pharmacies nationwide.

The payment platform is now part of the CVS Pharmacy mobile app, and integrates payment, prescription pickup and the ExtraCare loyalty program all into one quick scan at checkout.

CVS Pay first launched as a pilot program in the New York City metro area. Now available to all users of the mobile app, CVS Pay users have the ability to refill, manage multiple prescriptions and now pick-up and pay all within the app. Additionally, customers can link their ExtraCare card with CVS Pay, meaning a single scan at checkout will process all ExtraCare deals, earn new rewards and handle payment for the transaction. Customers can also use CVS Pay at the drive-thru, where they can simply share a pickup number found within the mobile app.

“We know that our customers lead busy lives, so our digital efforts are focused on making it easier for them to do simple but important things like picking up prescriptions. That’s why we are thrilled to launch CVS Pay to CVS Pharmacy app users nationwide,” said Brian Tilzer, svp/chief digital officer, CVS Health. “For our customers, CVS Pay offers more than just a payment solution. It’s a seamless, quick and easy user experience that makes picking up prescriptions and shopping at CVS Pharmacy even more convenient.”

CVS noted that its payment platform works in CVS Pharmacy standalone stores only and is not yet available at CVS Pharmacy in Target locations.
