Surely you have your phone on you? Clubcard app on the phone and just scan at at the self checkout.whenever i've been in tesco without my clubcard it just stops me buying loads of items...
same at morrisons though when I see "buy 2 for XX"
30% of the population is single they likely have no need for buy 2 offers... no other business would alienate 30% of their customer base
There are places like this in Singapore. Not surprising considering how tech and futuristic Singapore is.Amazon are working on completely automating supermarket checkout I believe which I suspect will then be rolled out across other supermarkets. That's the next step, completely automate it. Fill your basket/trolley and walk out of the shop and will be auto-billed via Debit/CC/Paypal etc
Self checkouts are great, they allow you to make your own discounts
JS handheld scanners don't seem to have even caught on
Billed as Covid-safe shopping to avoid the checkout, scanning your own groceries is adding an average 12 per cent to your supermarket spend, according to research from the University of Bath School of Management.
Studies of consumers found a surge on spending from between nine to 38 per cent, and it was shoppers with a firm budget plan that were behind the overspend.
Researchers found that using a handheld scanner gives people a sense of control and a more enjoyable shopping experience. They spend more time in the supermarket, look at a wider array of products and make 14 per cent more impulsive, unplanned purchases.
“Essentially shoppers are spending more time touching products while they look for barcodes and that builds a greater sense of desire. People feel more impulsive and they start to enjoy their shopping trip and feel happier. Interestingly they also make healthier choices in what they put in their trolley, as their shopping trip becomes a more conscious process and 5 per cent more of their selected products are healthy,
Man humans really ARE stupid then!School of Management research shows shoppers spend 12 per cent more when they scan their own shopping but make healthier choiceswww.bath.ac.uk
naive, but hadn't appreciated the side gig for scanners.
Even better is an apple watch with something like stocard installed, you can scan that rather than having to get your phone out.Surely you have your phone on you? Clubcard app on the phone and just scan at at the self checkout.
Or use a calculator on phone. Even my first brick phone back in 1998/9 had a calculator on it.Man humans really ARE stupid then!
If you have a budget, and you are using a device that literally shows you how close you are to your budget, and you STILL over-spend, then there is no hope for you.
As I said earlier in the thread they are no where near ready for mass adoption. Shrinkage is off the scale for these stores and the setup costs are astronomical but you don't hear about that in the marketing blurbTbf, we have them in London too...
This is on it's way to other retailers soon too.
I'm not sure what you mean? There is no app for scanning items? You just take something off the shelf and leave...What happens if the app for the scanning of items goes down???
That's not what I've been led to believe by someone setting it up in one of the major UK supermarkets. They're 99% accurate, which is much higher than self scanning options at the moment.As I said earlier in the thread they are no where near ready for mass adoption.

These unstaffed supermarkets I have seen clips - you scan a QR code on your phone to allow entry.I'm not sure what you mean? There is no app for scanning items? You just take something off the shelf and leave...
