Using Technology to Shop

Ever walk into a shop AND then go onto your tablet/smartphone to see what bargains are on? That seems to be the trend as many people are hampered on time and want to be in and out of their shopping seamlessly.

Amazon has already demonstrated this ability with their new grocery shop in America Seattle that opened in January this year; where shoppers scan what they want to buy with their device and at the end the customer pays with their card details stored on their device.

While this sci-fi-like scene is slowly spreading those that are behind the initiative say that this is not to overtake the traditional cash transactions but is meant to supplement them as there are those who want to see an actual person process their purchases and have a chat.
