Coles are trialling new monitoring systems at their self service checkouts to combat theft
Oh dear. There goes the old "put everything through as carrots "scam.
Interestingly. I read an article in a US magazine around 20 years ago that that some US retailers were trialling RFID technology so that shoppers would not even need to take their items out of the trolley.
The RFID scanner would automatically pick up every item in the trolley and calculate the total amount payable.
I have never heard anything more regarding whatever happened to the technology.
