In Australia, Woolworths has introduced a new feature in its self-serve checkouts that has a color-coded cash register.
This change aims to make the shopping experience easier for customers. The new registers can be used by both customers and staff members when scanning their groceries.
The new registers come in two types: dark grey and lime green. The former is ideal for shoppers who prefer to use a credit or debit card to pay for their purchases.
On the other hand, the latter is for customers who prefer to use cash or card. To help customers choose the best payment method, Woolworths has additionally added additional signs below the registers.
A spokesperson for Woolworths confirmed the change to 7 NEWS.com.au, saying that the company is currently testing the new feature in its stores.
The spokesperson noted that the changes are part of the company’s efforts to make the shopping experience more convenient and easier for its customers.
The spokesperson noted that the new signs are designed to complement the company’s existing self-serve checkouts.
They also added that the new features are being tested in a number of the company’s stores.
Another notable change that Woolworths has introduced to its self-checkout areas is the addition of double-bag areas.
In footage from one of the company’s stores, two large new registers are shown to have additional packing space for your groceries.
The new registers allow Woolworths customers to carry a trolley-full of groceries through the self-checkout process.
In addition, the company has also updated the security measures in its stores.
It has started installing cameras in some of its self-serve checkout areas to help prevent scanning errors.
