Walmart’s international billing device, which lets customers pay bills on the move anywhere in the world, is getting a boost from its biggest rival.
The online retail giant is launching a service in the U.K., Ireland, Australia, Germany, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and the device is set to be available in all of the countries for the next 12 months.
The device is billed by a credit card that can be used anywhere in Walmart’s online stores, as well as on its online mobile app.
It’s part of Walmart’s attempt to grow its international business, and is aimed at giving customers a way to pay their bills by the post or in their home country.
The company launched the new system last month to give consumers the ability to pay bills for international purchases in stores across the globe.
The move comes after Walmart’s global sales dropped by 4.4 percent in the first quarter of this year.
The company said in its latest earnings report that it had been able to recover some $3.1 billion in revenue, but said the losses were a result of the impact of the Zika virus.
Wendy’s also said last month that it will begin selling the new payment device in the next two months.
Walmart’s international system has been a hit in countries where the company is trying to expand its presence.
In Australia, the company has installed the device in more than 10,000 Walmart stores and has installed a number of localised apps.
In Europe, the store has installed more than 4,000 of the devices.
In the U: The first wave of the new device is scheduled to launch in the Netherlands in March 2018.
The European Union is expected to start using it in the coming weeks.
In Canada, the retailer will roll out the service later this year in Quebec and Ontario.
In Australia, Walmart is testing the new service in Perth, with plans to introduce the new card system in all its stores there in 2018.
WalMart’s Australian subsidiary is also rolling out the international billing system in the country.
