Aldi to accept contactless payments at all locations

Grocery chain Aldi will now enable shoppers to pay for their items with any contactless payment method, including mobile methods such as Apple Pay, as well as plastic cards and wearables, according to a press release.

"We're continually innovating to provide our customers a faster, more efficient shopping experience that saves them time and money," Jason Hart, CEO of Aldi, said in the release. "Shoppers love ALDI because we build and run stores they can shop quickly. Contactless payment makes shopping at ALDI that much faster and more convenient."

The announcement is the latest action by Aldi to make grocery shopping and saving as convenient and efficient as possible, according to the release. Aldi recently announced a pilot partnership with Instacart, the grocery delivery service.
