CVS Now Accepts Touchless QR Code Payments via PayPal or Venmo
CVS locations nationwide now accept payment via QR code, for a safer, touchless checkout experience. The system is compatible with the QR code feature of both the Venmo and PayPal apps. With either app, customers can draw funds for payment from an existing credit or debit card, a bank account, or their PayPal/Venmo balance. The service is available only at standalone CVS locations, (not those within a Target, for example.) PayPal owns Venmo. PayPal does not charge fees for making payments using QR codes via either app.
