Harris Teeter will pilot Paydiant's mobile wallet as part of its Express Lane online shopping service, starting at a grocery store location in Matthews, N.C.

The initial deployment will enable the grocery store's customers to use "HT Express Pay," a Harris Teeter-branded mobile wallet to pay for groceries ordered online. Customers can pick up their food at Express Lane curbside pick-up locations and use the app to pay without leaving their vehicles.

Consumers download the Harris Teeter mobile wallet to their iPhone or Android smartphone, and link their payment cards to the wallet. They then scan a QR code presented to them on a VeriFone handheld point of sale device. From there, the consumer uses the mobile wallet to choose which payment card to use, taps a "pay" button and receives a digital receipt.

Harris Teeter also plans to accept other Paydiant-powered mobile wallets from banks and card issuers this year. Upon completion of the pilot, Harris Teeter expects to incorporate the Paydiant mobile wallet into its existing customer-facing mobile app, ht mobile.

"Paydiant's white-label mobile wallet platform is as much about enhancing loyalty as it is about enabling mobile payments. That is where much of the value lies and Harris Teeter is taking full advantage of those capabilities," says Chris Gartner, co-founder of Paydiant, in a press release.

Coles, another supermarket chain, is testing mobile payments in Australia, and AisleBuyer supports mobile payments at grocery stores in New England.

Paydiant also recently partnered with the Pulse debit and ATM network to provide bank-branded mobile wallets.
