ACI Worldwide Enables Payment in the Aisle with UK Co-op Stores

Co-op created an app using the Mobile Commerce SDK, which is part of the UP eCommerce Payments solution. With the app on their own device, customers can scan products as they shop, and when they’re ready to check out the cost is deducted from their Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Our Take

Payment innovation is accelerating as consumers are looking for more convenience.Retailers are actively pursuing opportunities to make shopping in their stores easier, faster, and more convenient for their customers. Amazon Go stores have managed to eliminate the need to scan any products, but highly sophisticated technology is required to track consumers in this way. ACI’s Pay-in-the-Aisle product strikes a good balance, offering convenience for the customer without requiring the retailer to dramatically alter its in-store technology requirements.
