Turkey's BKM unveils checkout-free payments

Turkish digital wallet outfit BKM has unveiled a system that lets shoppers bypass the checkout and instead pay for their items with their phones.

Installed at a music and bookstore in Istanbul, the system requires a shopper to use a POS device to scan the barcodes on items they are buying. A QR code then appears on the POS screen, which the shopper scans with the BKM Express app on their phone before getting a notification of the transaction.

Serkan Yazıcıoğlu, EVP, digital solutions, BKM, says: "Checkout free shopping experience is still in a trial stage in the world and we are very happy for rolling out this technology for the first time in Turkey...The projects which will merge in-store payments with mobile payment technology will continue."

Last week, UK grocer the Co-op teamed up with Mastercard to trial a checkout-less system which is similar to the BKM offering but is carried out entirely on the mobile phone and does not require shoppers to use a separate POS device.
