Marks & Spencer is more than tripling the number of stores offering its Mobile Pay Go technology, allowing users to pay for goods with their smartphone without visiting the till.
M&S has made yet another bold tech move as part of its “Never the Same Again” programme, and has expanded the rollout of its scan-and-go technology from 100 to 310 stores.
Driven by the shift towards contact-free shopping amid the pandemic, M&S is aiming to bring its Mobile Pay Go technology to shoppers outside of London, where it has largely been focused since launch.
Over 10,000 new customers have used Mobile Pay Go since March, and now customers in Belfast, Aberystwyth, Falkirk and Dover will have access to the technology.
“As part of our Never the Same Again programme, we’re accelerating the pace of our transformation – and that includes creating digitally connected stores that are fit for the future,” M&S director of stores Helen Milford said.
“This rollout takes our increasingly popular Mobile Pay Go technology nationwide for the first time, allowing more customers to enjoy a seamless checkout-free experience through the M&S app.
“With more customers starting to return to the workplace, this provides a quick and convenient lunchtime solution – making it easy to pop in, grab your items and be on your way.”
