Case Study
SKIPPEN: Pay with Tikkie in the SPAR University shop!

 Waiting in line for the checkout is the most annoying part of shopping. Most supermarkets are now using self-scan checkouts to improve customer experience and speed up the payment process.

The next level is a supermarket without a checkout. After a year of testing, Amazon opened its first supermarket with no checkout in Seattle.

In the Dutch market, Albert Heijn announced that they will launch a ‘Tap and Go’ concept to all of their To Go supermarkets this year.

Our favourite concept this year is SKIPPEN, a system created by SPAR University that uses Tikkie.

SKIPPEN is easy to use:

  1. Grab & scan your products
  2. Pay with Tikkie & skip the line
  3. Checkout & get your reward
