7-Eleven has announced its mobile checkout has launched in Canada on Monday, at all of its convenience stores nationwide.
The feature first launched in the U.S. back in 2018 at over 3,000 stores, and the expansion to Canada marks just the second market to see the mobile checkout option.
With mobile checkout, 7-Eleven customers can use the company’s app to scan items in-store, hit checkout in the app and pay, then scan a QR code at the ‘confirmation station’ before exiting.
The feature eliminates the need to wait in line for a cashier to ring up your items. Check out the video demo below:
“Our customers told us that they want more time to focus on the important things in their lives. We took that insight and developed 7-Eleven’s proprietary technology to create a full contactless shopping experience. We know this will help our customers save time and empower them to make the most of their day,” said Norman Hower, VP and GM of 7-Eleven Canada, in a statement.
“We’re reinventing convenience with the 7-Eleven Mobile Checkout and this is yet another example of how we’re developing digital innovation to actively exceed our customers’ needs,” added Hower.
As part of a launch promo, 7-Eleven Canada says it is offering 10x rewards points for all purchases made using the new mobile checkout feature. The company also says it is the first retailer in Canada to launch Mobile Checkout chain-wide.
