The service will cost $98 if paid annually or $12.95 month to month; Amazon Prime costs $119 annually or $12.99 month to month.

Walmart Plus is a subscription service that will launch nationwide September 15.

The first and biggest aspect of Walmart+ is the Unlimited Free Delivery. Non-members now get free two-day deliveries for millions of items on orders of $35 or more.

Walmart notes that the Walmart+ perks come in addition to other services it now offers, such as free curbside pickup, and NextDay and two-day delivery.

"We are a company committed to meeting our customers' needs", said Janey Whiteside, chief customer officer of Walmart.

Besides, he said, Bangladesh should be part of the clinical trial of various vaccines, including that of China and India. Bangladesh has registered 45 new fatalities from COVID-19 in a daily count, taking the total death toll to 4,127.

There are now about 70 Walmart stores in New Jersey.

Walmart has tried to mimic Amazon Prime before, testing a program called ShippingPass that it shuttered in 2017. "We're launching it to meet the needs of our customers".

Walmart+ will be slightly cheaper than Amazon's ever so popular Prime membership, although free shipping will not be offered for every item like the online retail giant, according to a report by CNBC. To qualify, orders must be at least $35 (roughly Rs. 2,600).

Walmart+ benefits will be available on top of the retailers' standard offerings such as free curbside pickup, and both next-day and two-day delivery, the company said.

At its stores, members can unlock an app to scan items as they shop and pay without having to stop at a cashier. These kinds of contactless payments are especially useful during the pandemic to help customers avoid touching payment terminals and other shared surfaces. Additionally, members can save up to 5 cents (roughly Rs.37) a gallon at almost 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express fuel stations. "We consider it a life hack". Sam's Club fuel stations will soon be added.
