In Bahrain, Carrefour, owned and run by Majid Al Futtaim, has introduced a self-checkout service in association with CrediMax. At the hypermarkets at Bahrain Mall and Carrefour City Centre, it is a first-of-its-kind service in the kingdom.
At Carrefour supermarkets, shoppers may easily scan and bag goods using a handheld device with a bank card or smartphone.
Customers using the gadget at the designated self-checkout area can complete their payment using a debit/credit card or MyClub points by scanning the barcode of each product.
The service is simple to use: users just scan and bag their purchases at the designated self-checkout counters to complete any transaction. A MyClub card barcode may be scanned to choose a preferred payment method. Then, customers may leave by using the specialized gate scanner to scan the barcode on their printed receipt.
“At Carrefour, we take great pleasure in giving the most convenient and integrated shopping experiences imaginable,” said Laurent Hausknecht, regional director of Gulf at Majid Al Futtaim Retail. We are aware that clients value convenience and good customer service more than ever before. We can do that because of the self-checkout option, giving customers greater freedom and control. Because it accepts cashless payments, fewer interactions with other customers and touchpoints are necessary, and consumers may avoid standing in lengthy lines and enjoy more comfort.
