It is intended to allow people to make purchases without a bank account or credit card.

"We are going to touch a segment of the American public who hasn't been able to participate online without going through a lot of hoops," said Joel Anderson, president and CEO of Walmart.com.
It works like this: Customers go to the website to select the item and place an order. During checkout, they can select the "cash" option and their shipping preference.
