Walmart Starts Testing “Scan & Go” In Store iPhone System

Posted Sep 3, 2012

When checking out at Walmart, the process may now become simpler.  Walmart is testing a new “Scan & Go” feature on the iPhone.  This would allow users to scan and immediately bag items on their shopping list.  The purchase could get finalized at a self-checkout counter.  Scanning the items with the iPhone would create a list that would be reflected at the automated payment process check-out lane.  How the system would work is not yet known.  Walmart friends and family were asked to test out the new app as part of an hour-long trial run.
