Scan & Go for a seamless
customer experience

Shopping today is all about convenience and personalisation. Blending physical and digital shopping can be challenging for retailers. Scan & Go technology - also known as mobile self-checkout - helps create a seamless experience for customers by delivering hyper-personalised recommendations, shared shopping lists, detailed product information and more directly to their mobile phones.

Checkout on the phone

Snabble offers several ways to implement Scan & Go. One is via an SDK for integration into existing applications. Or via the Snabble app, which allows a quick pilot without a separate app.

Scan & Go shopping flow

Enter store

The customer enters the store and either opens the Snabble app, the merchant app or uses a handheld.

Scan products

Shopping starts with scanning the first product. The products are added to the shopping cart. Discounts are automatically added to the shopping cart.


Different checkout scenarios are possible.

  1. Pay directly in the app
  2. Via QR code at a self-Checkout terminal or at the checkout. 


After successful completion of the transaction, the customer sees a success screen in the app and or additionally receives a QR code that is confirmed at a SCO terminal or the cashier. The customer can leave the store as usual. 

Key factors

The success of Scan & Go can be summed up in three key factors.
