One possibility to implement a cash register-free system in Netto stores is the Reeve concept in select test stores. For example, “pick and go” was used at a discounter in Cologne.

According to information from Reeve, this can identify not only products like toilet paper, which can be measured by sensors on the shelf, but also products like freshly brewed coffee.

Aldi: New cash register system being tested

Aldi is also testing a “pick and go” system. Aldi Süd has already announced related trials for a branch in London, and Aldi Nord is now for a discounter in Utrecht. The system should work the same way as Reeve. The in-house app is the central interface in all of the supermarket chains tested.

Amazon is considered the pioneer of the “pick and go” system. The American company has been running cashless shopping since 2019 – initially for various stores, and also for supermarkets from 2021, for example in Great Britain.

The Amazon system provides the basis for the innovations of Reeve, Aldi & Co. However, there is an important difference. There are Alexa terminals at various points in the Amazon markets to be able to answer customer questions. Actual employees are on site at the mentioned supermarket chains.
