Due to the fact that the majority of customers wishing to help protect the environment, Carrefour will no longer automatically give out receipts in its stores

The company states that this decision will help save several thousand kilometers of paper every year. For loyalty card-holding customers who want a receipt, their paper receipt will be replaced by an electronic one, which they can access online at the website.

Carrefour customers can log on to their Carrefour account and view a breakdown of their purchases at any time (they can see the products they have bought, the transaction time, their Loyalty Card number, the means of payment used, the VAT rate, etc.). They can also download and print out their electronic till receipt from the website.

As a result of several surveys, Carrefour identified strong demand on the part of its customers to stop automatically giving out paper till receipts. The initiative has been trialed over the past year at Carrefour convenience stores and supermarkets, and given its high popularity is now being extended to all hypermarkets.
