Target acquires Shipt, will roll out $99/year, same-day delivery

The battle between Amazon and Walmart is widely known, but Target is now entering the space in a new way. Target announced its plans to buy Shipt, a grocery delivery startup, in a $550 million all-cash deal. Created in 2014, Shipt lets members order groceries online from various supermarkets and then sends a shopper to pick up and delivery the items on the same day.

Shipt is based in Birmingham, Alabama and already has partnerships with some of big grocery chains across the country, including Costco, Kroger, Publix, and HEB. Under the deal, Shipt will be a wholly owned Target subsidiary and will continue to operate independently while serving Target's new same-day delivery efforts.

Target already offers same-day delivery in New York City, but online retail seemingly becomes more competitive each day. Target's acquisition follows Walmart's recent purchase of Parcel, a New York City-based delivery company that Walmart plans to use to offer same-day delivery in the New York metro area. Meanwhile, Amazon offers same-day delivery in thousands of markets cross the country and its $99-per-year Prime membership offers free two-day shipping to most areas.

Target announces its own Green Monday sale and other shopping events

Target Green Monday Deals

Green Monday may be a sales term coined by eBay many years to describe a brand new sales event, but it’s not just eBay that offers Green Monday deals any more.

Green Monday is “celebrated” on the second Monday of December every year, and while it’s not as big as Black Friday or Cyber Monday, the sales event is still something to consider checking out, especially if your Christmas shopping isn’t done.

Apple Pay Holdout Target Launches New In-App Mobile Payments System

Target today launched its own payments platform, allowing customers to pay for purchases using a new Wallet feature in the dedicated Target app available on iOS and Android devices.

Target's Wallet feature lets customers pay with their Target REDcard and get Cartwheel discounts and benefits all in one phone scan during checkout.

To use the feature, Target customers need to add a Target REDcard to the Wallet in the Target app. REDcard is Target's store-branded credit card, which offers customers discounts on purchases.

When checking out, Target customers will need to open up the Target app, tap on Wallet, scan coupon barcodes and then scan the wallet barcode to make a purchase.

Target's payments service is a barcode-based system, similar to Walmart's dedicated Walmart Pay option, which uses QR codes. While Walmart Pay supports any major credit, debit, pre-paid or Walmart gift card, Target's Wallet appears to be limited to its own RED cards.

Target claims that its new Wallet feature is up to four times faster than other payment types when checking out.
"Wallet in the Target app makes checkout easier and faster than ever," said Mike McNamara, Target's chief information and digital officer. "Guests are going to love the convenience of having payment, Cartwheel offers, Weekly Ad coupons and GiftCards all in one place with Wallet."
Target, like Walmart, is one of the few remaining major companies that have opted not to adopt Apple Pay, Apple's mobile payments service. As a result, Apple Pay is not available in Target stores, but it can be used in the Target app when making online purchases. Target is also a founding member of the Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX), a now defunct consortium of retailers that planned to launch a payment platform called CurrentC to compete with Apple Pay.

CurrentC has been delayed indefinitely, and many MCX members like Best Buy and Rite-Aid have begun accepting Apple Pay.

Earlier this year, Target said it had "no plans" to add support for Apple Pay.
