Mobile checkout in store

Sports retailer Decathlon has incorporated RFID tags into products at its first physical store in the US. The superstore, in Emeryville, California, uses the technology along with iPhones held by shop assistants to enable customers to checkout at Mobile Checkout stations around the shop easily and quickly.

Rather than having to queue at a fixed cash desk, customers let an assistant know that they want to pay.

The assistant puts the customer’s physical shopping basket inside an RFID-enabled mobile checkout station, scans a QR code on the station, and the contents of the basket are transferred to a virtual shopping bag on an app on the assistant’s iPhone.
