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.
