Walmart Tests iPhone 'Scan & Go' System

Walmart is testing an iPhone 'Scan & Go' system that will allow shoppers to scan items with the iPhone and then pay at a self-checkout counter, reports Reuters.

In the Walmart iPhone scanning test, shoppers can scan products with their phone and put them in bags while they shop, and then pay at a self-checkout counter.

The test does not allow users to pay on their phone. The app transfers the scanned items to the self-checkout kiosk and then shoppers complete the transaction using the normal self-checkout process.

The test took place at the Walmart supercenter in Rogers, Arkansas. The company asked employees, family, and friends to participate paying $100 for their time and a $25 gift card to use for purchases.

I would LOVE to see this as a regular feature of the App. It would make my Tactical shopping much better.

Apple has filed a lawsuit claiming it owns the patent to grocery shopping.

I can see one potential abuse of this system and that is putting items in your trolley, basket, bag etc that the sneaky customer wants to steal. What checks could be put in place to stop this from happening?

Im sure you would have to put it on the bagger thingy just like you do using the self checkout. That way it can weigh all the items. Simple
