The new feature will be introduced nationally across all stores around Australia next year
IKEA is launching a Mobile check-out solution to give customers a faster experience in-store – a first for home furnishing retailers in Australia.
Customers shopping at IKEA Logan and North Lakes in Queensland will be the first to experience the new feature, which can be activated via the IKEA App, or by scanning the QR code in-store.
Mobile check-out has been introduced to speed up the checkout process for customers who can now scan products directly on their phone as they shop and pay at the marked checkouts on the way out – no need to unpack and repack trolleys or bags to complete payment.
With an average wait time of six minutes in line to checkout, plus the time taken to unload and reload items, the feature will save customers time and effort.
We’ve reported that IKEA’s online sales grew over 70% over last year.
