The future of checkout-free retail has arrived and retailers around the globe are already embracing the opportunities presented by frictionless shopping. Going checkout-free can help your business in a number of ways, all of which are good for the bottom line.
In many instances we only need one or two days to install our checkout-free technology. We use off-the-shelf hardware to make build-out affordable and simpler for retailers. Zippin’s platform is easily installed within your existing store format, and we can connect cameras and sensors to your current shelving and coolers. No extra real estate, server rooms, or special accommodations are required.
Zippin worked in partnership with Fujitsu to create a pilot store with Lawson, one of Japan’s leading convenience store brands. Located in Tokyo and launched in February 2020, this was the first checkout-free store in the world to use palm reader technology.
Golden 1 Center is a world-class entertainment and sports arena in downtown Sacramento and home to the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. Zippin and Golden 1 Center worked together to create the world’s first in-arena checkout-free convenience store.
As we shape the future of frictionless shopping, our partners are crucial to our ability to distribute and deploy our platform around the world. Our checkout-free technology enables our partners to create better retail solutions and enhanced customer experiences at sports stadiums, corporate campuses, convention centers, grocery and convenience stores, and anywhere else people shop.
“Zippin is the way of the future, and not just in the stadium environment, but in any environment where you have a large crowd that needs to be serviced quickly.”
Zippin has flexible ways of working with partners. We either work directly with our partners to help them serve their customers (e.g.: stadium operators, events facility managers), or our partner introduces us to their customer and we work directly with that organization to install and manage checkout-free technology.
