Supermarket chain Woolworths is making queueing to pay for groceries a thing of the past with the launch of Scan&Go checkouts for shoppers.

Then, as you shop, scan each product’s barcode before presenting a QR code at the Scan&Go checkout to pay.
Items that need to be weighed like fruit and vegetables can be cleverly weighed by Woolworths’ smart scales.
Meanwhile, shoppers can carefully bag their items as they shop, making the whole thing a more streamlined experience.

The Scan&Go checkouts have already been spotted in Sydney in the Crows Nest store, Mona Vale and Wentworthville.
There is a full list of the stores using it across Australia on the Woolworths website.
Those who have tried the ‘faster way to shop and checkout’ have heaped praise on the novel idea.
‘This was the most enjoyable experience shopping with kids ever,’ one person wrote.
‘Kids had fun scanning and packing into bags. And it saves so much time putting items straight into your bag. No lines, just a scan at the checkout.
‘Thank you Woolies from a busy mum!’
Another added: ‘Super quick. Super convenient’.
Many have praised the new features, saying it’s quick, convenient and really helps them to stick to a budget
Many praised how useful the new feature is for sticking to a budget.
‘I love getting the running total of what I’m putting into the trolley,’ one person said.
‘It’s so good to keep to a budget. Best thing ever.’
The maximum amount you can pay for in-app is $350, or $150 at metro stores. The only things you can’t buy through the system is gift cards, SIM cards and tobacco products.
A Woolworths spokesperson told FEMAIL: ‘Scan&Go is the faster, smarter way to shop for your groceries at Woolworths, available at more than 70 stores across Australia.
‘As Woolworths opens new stores and renew existing stores, Scan&Go will be considered part of the mix.’
