M&S launches instant payment tech to drive festive grocery sales

Marks & Spencer

Marks & Spencer has rolled out instant payment technology across 200 of its stores in a bid to allow shoppers to make grocery purchases quicker.

The retailer has launched a new on-the-spot digital payment solution called Pay With Me across 200 stores following a successful trial in seven of its branches.

The technology allows M&S shop floor staff to select shoppers queuing to pay for a small number of items and allow them to process payment on the spot with a handheld device.

M&S has said the technology is intended to maximise the number of shoppers that are able to enter a store while maintaining necessary social distancing by cutting down queuing times.
