Decathlon Uses Mobile Checkout Stations to Help Customers Avoid Lines

A sports store from retailer Decathlon in Emeryville, California now features easy checkout stations that allow consumers to quickly cash out with the help of mobile devices. With RFID tags incorporated at the physical sports retail shop, consumers are able to visit a mobile checkout station and skip the line at a fixed cash desk. Shop assistants equipped with iPhones are able to help make the process of cashing out as easy as possible via Apple Pay, a gift card, a credit card or even NewStore Checkout payment technology.

For loss prevention, the mobile checkout system is connected to the in-store security system, so that items that have already been paid for do not set off the security alarms when a customer is prepared to leave.
