    7-Eleven looks into a more frictionless model (i.e. no waiting or taking out cash or a credit card) by testing a cashierless store at their corporate headquarters.

    They're fairly early in the testing process as the 700-square-foot store is only available to 7-Eleven employees.

    According to the company, "A proprietary mixture of algorithms and predictive technology enables the store system to separate individual customers and their purchases from others in the store." Products sold at the store includes a selection of beverages, snacks, food, groceries, over-the-counter drugs, and non-food items.

    They way the test store works is:

    - You first need to download a special app and sign up.
    - To shop, check in at the store, enter the store, pick up whatever you want/need, and leave (A receipt for your purchases appears in the app automatically once you leave).



    So it's based on a trust system?
    Promise me you won't steal guys! mmmmkay?

    Fuck the only thing preventing me from getting a slurpee is having to actually make eye contact with the employee - hello, obesity.

    Local grocery store kind of has this. They got rid of plastic bags so you download an app and scan and bag your stuff as you shop. You just have to pay at the self checkout or cashier and then leave.

    I'll find the double used condom, use it a third time, then glaze some chicolate chip cookies and leave without paying

    Cool.

    It will be hard to apply in countries like mine but we should advance in using technology for everything.

    Good move by 7-11 IMO. Now their employees can sit at home and be safe instead of constantly being under the threat of armed robbery.

    There’s definitely a place for these things, basically big vending machines. They won’t replace all convenience stores, but they’ll probably be cheap enough to run that they’ll pop up at the kind of locations best suited to support them. Office parks, highway rest areas, airports, in cutouts at supermarkets similar to where the can returns are now, basically anywhere you might go to proposition strangers for sex, they’ll pop up and start selling hostess cakes and hot rod magazines.

    My grocery store has self checkout area and someone basically needs to stand there and monitor it because many times things don’t work.

    They have tried this at a lot of grocery stores and multi-purpose stores like Target. Most of the time the machines lose the store money based on shoppers not swiping everything correctly (sometimes intentional theft, sometimes not) and require an employee to show people how to use the kiosk or troubleshoot, which defeats the whole purpose of the cashierless kiosk.

    The interesting study would be comparing the profit/loss that comes from hundreds or thousands of misused kiosk transactions per day versus the cost of paying for cashiers (wage, healthcare, training, turnover, etc.).
