Walmart Shopping Center: Scan and Go

Self Scanning Machine
First time when I came to Walmart, the biggest super center in the USA about 13 years ago, where each counter has own cashier, no automatic scanning at all. Then, there are a few self scanning, but there is someone to take care payment either by credit card or cash or even by cheques.
Since last year, 2018, almost all counters of Walmart groceries are automatic. We take care ourselves, from scanning the goods, put and arrange in the plastic bags and do payment. The payment by credit or debit card only. No cash payments or cheques.
Actually, the self scanning system is not new, first invented by Howard Schneider and applied by the supermarket, called the Price Chopper in New York in 1992. Then automatic machines were copied by many supermarket across America since 1997.

No cashiers anymore
Now, to save time, several supermarket provide portable scanners. We scan the barcode on items, then arranging the items in the cart. The scanner add up the bill, thus we could through available cashiers or through self-checkout counters.  
In addition to automatic check out, the Walmart offers shopping through online. We can order everything from computer devices to electronics to prescription drugs to groceries to avoid crowd in the checkout line. Then, we could pick up after the store completed our orders.
This is new thing for me. Quite difficult to adjust for me at first. However, technology changes can’t be avoided, we must face of its. What do you think?

  1. Evi, we have the same system of self scanning in 'OK mall', but I always need a help of a assistant because I don't remember what to do 'now and then' ha ha. For me the cashier is easier.

  2. To me this seems like a great innovation. The only similar thing we have here is a machine where you can pay your bills. You scan the bill, put the money in and get the change. It's great.

  5. Our world is slowly going forward - from one site is so great innovation but from another not to the end. I think a lot of people still need real assistant around

  8. Technique! I would not buy much groceries if I had to order beforehand ...would safe me much money!I saw self scanning just at Ikea yet here in Austria but maybe there is more of this already in the big stores. I am not the type of customer for this system, but maybe that is the future, then I have to learn it....

  12. I really like being able to scan my own purchases as it just seems to go so much faster than waiting for a cashier.

  13. It's very convenient to be able to scane items yourself but I find the automatic checkouts really annoying to use and i generally prefer a bit of human contact when I'm shopping....
