Decathlon launches 'cashierless shopping' across Dutch stores


Decathlon has launched “cashierless” mobile self-checkout capabilities across all of its stores in the Netherlands.

The world’s largest sporting goods retailer said it would be rolling out a “mobile self-checkout solution” across its 16-store estate in the Netherlands, starting with stores in Rotterdam and Eindhoven.

The Decathlon Scan & Go app, designed by British-based technology company MishiPay, will allow customers to “scan and pay for items using their smartphone, automatically disabling the RFID security tag to leave them free to exit the store without any need to queue or wait at the checkout”.

Decathlon joins a number of other retailers, including Amazon in the US and Sainsbury’s in the UK, which have rolled out cashierless concept stores.
