Self-scanning and self-checkout: The smart solution for faster shopping

Tuesday 14 February 2023

As modern consumers, we are always in a hurry. We want to store efficiently and quickly without standing in line and waiting at the checkout. Fortunately, Prestop offers the solution: self-scanning and self-checkout. This article explains exactly what self-scanning and self-checkout are, their benefits, and how it works.

What are self-scanning and self-checkout, and how does it work?

Self-scanning and self-checkout are technologies that allow customers to scan and check out their products themselves without the intervention of a checkout clerk. Self-scanning allows customers themselves to scan the product's bar code on a self-scanning checkout counter and then checkout. Self-scanning and self-checkout use technologies that allow products to be scanned and checked out. This can be done, for example, through barcode scanners or a device equipped with a camera that recognizes products. For example, Prestop worked with RFID for Heineken Experience, which meant that visitors only had to place their baskets in a bin, and all products were immediately displayed on the screen without manually scanning them. Checkout in self-checkout is usually through a payment terminal where customers can pay with their debit or credit cards.

The benefits of self-scanning checkouts and self-checkout

Self-scanning and self-checkout bring several benefits to both customers and retailers. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Faster shopping: Customers do not have to stand in line at the checkout, leading to a faster and more efficient shopping experience.
  • Better customer experience: Customers have more control over the checkout process and do not have to wait for a clerk.
  • Reduced queues: Faster transaction processing allows stores to serve more customers and reduces the likelihood of long queues at the checkout.
  • Increased sales: Customers who check out faster are more likely to return and buy more often.


As consumers, we want to store faster and more efficiently, and we can do that by using self-scanning and self-checkout. These technologies allow us to scan and check out our products ourselves without the intervention of a checkout clerk. This benefits both customers and shoppers and leads to a better shopping experience.
