Supermarket Development And Payment


In the earliest retail era, shoppers visited many stores many times, when each store specialized in a certain type of products, such as butchers, bakeries, greengrocers, fish shops, dry goods and grocery stores, and Various other shops. However, these stores are only suitable for the sale of products with a long shelf life. Milk and other goods that are prone to deterioration are sent directly to the customer's door by the milkman.

More importantly, people were not able to browse the merchandise on dairy shelves at the time, because American retailers at the end of the 19th century simply did not have such a layout. Instead, the shopper walks to the front of the store counter, and when the sales assistant checks the different packages and the goods in the bucket, dictates their order, and the merchant sends a separate package based on the customer's order quantity. This process is slow, and the number of customers served depends entirely on the number and efficiency of employees. In addition, such stores are also labor intensive, which means that the operating costs of a day are relatively high.

After the end of World War II, the emerging middle class in the United States began to prosper, and with the emergence of suburban car culture, supermarket brands expanded rapidly. Numerous family-owned grocers had to close, and this situation also helped the supermarket to integrate American culture. Interestingly, supermarket chains like Safeway and Krogers now feel the pressure of hypermarkets like Wal-Mart and online retailers like Amazon, just like the local grocery stores that were replaced a century ago.

In the past few decades, our shopping methods have also undergone fundamental changes. Payments by cash and checks have been slowly replaced by credit and debit cards, and credit and debit cards are gradually being phased out, replaced by safer EMV credit cards (aka chips and pin codes), not to mention Recently introduced contactless payment methods, such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

But this is not just a question of how we pay when we check out, but how we interact with us at checkout. For decades, the process has been simple: push the cart to the checkout counter, chat with him when the cashier scans your merchandise and packs it, and pays. This long-established tradition began to change in the 1980s thanks to David R Humble. After waiting in the supermarket, he invented the first "Semi-attended customer-activated terminal" (SACAT). The technology was introduced in the 1990s, and by 2013, more than 200,000 stores worldwide used this cardless cash register. This number is expected to reach 350,000 in the next 10 years.
