The notion of what constitutes a traditional checkout is changing. As the number of checkouts attended by a cashier is shrinking, self-service solutions and the related self-payment stations can already be considered commonplace. 

Self-scanning and self-payment stations

We have noticed that there is some confusion about the terms related to self-service solutions, and since we were the first to bring these solutions to market, we have tried to clarify them below.


Self-scanning is a form of self-service, where the customer registers their goods while traversing the sales area and pays for them at a self-payment station (SPS) directly before leaving the sales area.

Self-scanning is usually performed with specially designed handheld terminals, but customers may also be able to use their personal mobile phone.


Another related term is self-checkout (SCO) or self-service checkout. SCO denotes a form of self-service in which the customer registers their goods and pays for them at the same location directly before leaving the sales area.

By implementing and combining several self-service solutions, it is possible to create a versatile shopping environment that allows you to speed up sales processes and optimise labour costs, and where each customer group can choose the service model they like best.
