Mainetti and MishiPay link-up for easy-to-use self checkout

Apr 12, 2022

Mainetti and MishiPay have partnered to launch an intelligent Scan & Go service that allows clothing shoppers to pick and buy items without the need for a conventional store checkout.

Radio frequency identification (RFID) retail solutions provider Mainetti and Scan & Go technology provider MishiPay said their collaboration “brings the benefits of frictionless checkout to shoppers across the globe”.
The partners also describe the system as “a win for both the retailer and customer” with Scan & Go allowing both customers and retailers to reduce the face-to-face interaction and touchpoints “which has grown in importance as we transition back to normality post Covid”. 

In addition, they said self-scanning “will help to reduce queues which in turn will increase the basket spend and ultimately boost customer experience”.
MishiPay’s mobile self-checkout solution enables shoppers to use their own mobile phone for their entire shopping journey. In-store shoppers, using their own phones, can scan existing barcodes on products to access additional product information and add items to their basket. 
Price and promotion information is available in real-time, enabling the shopper to keep a track of their spending and savings as they move around the store. 
When the customer has finished shopping, they can check out “with the tap of a button using a wide range of payment methods”. 
Meanwhile, RFID security tags on purchased items will be automatically disabled using MishiPay’s tech and the shopper can exit the store without any manual staff intervention, it noted.
They say the system also means stores can operate more efficiently, creating space by reducing the requirement for conventional checkouts and freeing staff from processing transactions themselves at cash registers.
