Carrefour Poland preps Scan&Go roll-out
Carrefour Poland has launched its Scan&Go service. Part of the My Carrefour mobile app, this enables self-service product scanning as well as in-app payments. The solution has just been through a pilot stage and is set to be gradually launched in Carrefour stores across Poland.
Customers scan product barcodes in store aisles using the smartphone’s camera. The value of all scanned products is automatically added up and displayed within the app. They can then choose to pay with a payment card, Masterpass or cash. “Neither consumers nor retailers want to spend time and attention on handling payments. All in all, shopping, not paying, is the reason why consumers go to a store. That is why shopping solutions of the future will be automated and guarantee customers seamless and secure payments within a blink of an eye,” says Bartosz Ciołkowski, Head of Mastercard Poland. “Mastercard’s opinion polls confirm that Polish consumers are very open to new technological solutions, which let them shop faster and more conveniently. Therefore, we believe that Carrefour’s Scan&Go service with Masterpass will be well received and will help Poland pave the way for consumers and retailers in other countries.”
“Already over one third of Poles make mobile payments. It is obvious that with the growth of the mobile technology market and more young customers in our consumer database, this percentage will grow,” says Marcin Olech, Marketing, Digital and Financial Services Director at Carrefour Polska. “With Scan & Go, we want to guarantee that they can visit Carrefour stores and shop and pay the way they want. Quick and safe.”
