I’m getting in the habit of not carrying cash much now. There’s several benefits to this. For starters, everywhere I go there’s the “tap to pay” machines and I tend to use my phone. Also, there’s the added benefit of using the, “Oh lads, can you get the first round in, I’ve got no cash on me”-line when I head to the pub.
If you’re a regular in Tesco, you may have used their PayQwiq system. This is basically an app where you whack in your Tesco Clubcard account details, then – after creating a PIN, you add your debit card or credit card details in and pay for purchases using a simple on-screen code on your phone. No signal? No wallet? No clever “tappy tappy NFC” in your phone? No problem.
Now it’s changing to become “Tesco Pay+” and is growing in popularity. Since its rollout earlier this year the app has amassed over a quarter of a million users.
You’ll automatically collect Clubcard points with a single swipe and you can pay for up to £250-worth of shopping using the app, which can be downloaded here. You can also add multiple payment cards.
Customers using Tesco Pay+ will, until January 14th 2018, collect an extra Clubcard point for every £4 spent in store. It should make the checkout experience faster and simpler.
Mark Loch, Tesco Digital Wallet and Group Payments Director, told us..
The world is changing rapidly around us. How customers interact with their shopping experience, how they manage their money, and how they determine value, are developing all of the time. We are proud that we constantly invest in enhancing the shopping experience so that our customers receive a unique and exceptional service.

Tesco unveils Tesco Pay+
· Tesco Pay+ offers automatic reward and convenience for loyal shoppers
· New mobile payments app underlines Tesco’s commitment to transforming customer experience
Wednesday 27th 2017 – Tesco is excited to announce the launch of Tesco Pay+. The mobile payments app, which replaces PayQwiq from Tesco, makes the shopping trip more convenient and more rewarding for customers looking to pay using their smartphone. Key features of the digital wallet, include:-
· Ease and convenience at the checkout with simple and fast payment method
· Ability to automatically collect Clubcard points with a single swipe
· Link multiple payment cards on the app
· Pay for shopping up to the value of £250
Launched in 2015, the digital wallet service has been progressively rolled out across Tesco’s UK stores, with hundreds of thousands of customers having downloaded and using the app on a regular basis to vastly improve their checkout experience when shopping at Tesco.
On average, a transaction using the Tesco Pay+ digital wallet takes place every three seconds at a Tesco store, demonstrating its growing popularity with loyal Tesco shoppers. Since its rollout earlier this year the app has amassed over a quarter of a million users.
The decision to rebrand the digital wallet app to Tesco Pay+ marks Tesco’s commitment to offering customers a unique shopping experience across all UK stores. Customers using Tesco Pay+ will automatically collect Clubcard points for every transaction made at Tesco. As an extra little help, customers who use Tesco Pay + will collect one extra Clubcard point for every four pound spent in Tesco, making Pay+ one of the most rewarding way to pay in Tesco. Offer expires 14 January 2018.
The simple and fast checkout experience delivered by Tesco Pay+ is driving greater customer loyalty through combing a higher transaction limit than contactless and auto collection of Clubcard points in a single scan at checkout.
