Here’s where you can find them
Filipino businessman Manny Villar hit the smart carts at the Philippines AllDay supermarket last March. “This latest innovation is set to elevate the Filipino grocery shopping experience to a global level of convenience and enjoyment,” he said in a social media post.
Think of it as the future of grocery shopping, smart carts allow shoppers to keep track of what they choose in the store by scanning the item’s barcode. It will then record the price of each selected item and present a running total to help customers monitor their purchases as they shop.
According to the supermarket, an order ID QR code will be generated after shopping is complete. The QR Code contains the summary of his purchase, which will be scanned for the payment process.
Shoppers can then proceed to the self-service checkout counter to pay with their credit card. Customers who prefer to pay for their purchase using different payment methods – cash, GCash, AllEasy, among others – can visit the nearest cashier.
AllDay Supermarket’s smart carts are featured at its Evia Lifestyle Center branch in Las Piñas City.
