Zippin Along With Checkout-Free Retail

No more waiting in retail checkout lines or self-scanning. That’s the selling point of Zippin’s next-generation checkout-free software platform.

Retailers can deploy the Zippin platform and offer “frictionless shopping” for customers, according to the company.  After downloading the Zippin app and choosing their preferred payment method, customers can “zip in and out” with their purchases, and there’s no need to spend time in a checkout line.
