Woolworths is now trialling Scan&Go at four of its Sydney metro stores and its full line supermarket in Mona Vale. Customers will be able to scan goods with their smartphone as they walk through the store and pay via the app before tapping off at a dedicated checkout.

The expansion of the pilot follows the success of the Woolworths Double Bay trial over the last ten months.

“Our customers lead busy lives, and they want us to make shopping more convenient than ever before,” said Paul Monnington, Woolworths Group Head of Payments and Financial Services. “The trial in our Double Bay supermarket has been a success, with positive feedback from our customers and team, and we’re pleased to now extend the benefits of Scan&Go to more shoppers. Most customers in our CBD Metro stores just want to duck in and out for a few items, so we expect the speed and ease of Scan&Go will be quite a popular offer in this setting.”

We’ve also taken the opportunity to trial Scan&Go at Mona Vale following the renewal of the supermarket. This will allow us to test the offer with even more customers in a different setting so that we can determine the best role for it in the future.”
