“Many moms, dads and gift-givers have asked for alternative payment methods when shopping on Toysrus.com and Babiesrus.com, and we are very pleased to introduce this brand-new payment option for our customers just in time for the busy holiday shopping season,” said Milton Pappas, Vice President, e-commerce Customer Experience, Toys“R”Us, U.S. “Pay In Store is yet another way we are integrating our store and online businesses, creating a seamless shopping experience for our customers.”
Pay In Store serves as a convenient alternative payment option for customers who do not have a credit card or do not want to use their credit card online. Now, when shopping on Toysrus.com or Babiesrus.com, customers can simply select the Pay In Store option displayed as one of the Payment Method choices at checkout. Their order is then reserved, and they can visit their local “R”Us store to pay within 48 hours of receiving their confirmation e-mail. When paying in store, customers must bring a copy of the order confirmation e-mail to any register or display the e-mail on their smartphone to make their full payment. For added convenience, customers can use any payment type accepted at the store, including cash, check, credit cards and gift cards. Once payment is made, the order will be processed and shipped to the customer’s home.
