A major Aussie supermarket is making queues a thing of the past with its introduction of new registers.
Woolworths customers have started to spot Scan&Go terminals in stores. While they are only available in 66 stores currently, there are plans to introduce more as opportunities for new stores and renovations come up.
Stores such as Crows Nest and Wentworthville in Sydney have recently included them among the self-serve and staffed checkouts.

To use the new checkouts, all customers have to do is download the Woolworths app onto their phone. Then, as they shop, all they need to do is scan each product’s barcode.
At the end of the shop, customers then present a QR code at the Scan&Go checkout and pay.
“Scan&Go is the faster, smarter way to shop for your groceries at Woolworths, available at 66 stores across Australia,” a Woolworths spokesperson told news.com.au.
“Customers download the Woolworths app on their phone and simply scan the product barcodes as they walk through the store if Scan&Go is offered at their local store.
“Customers finalise their shop by paying through the app then presenting a QR code at the Scan&Go dedicated checkout upon exiting the store.
“As Woolworths opens new stores and renew existing stores, Scan&Go will be considered part of the mix.”
