7-Eleven launches first cashless and cardless convenience store

The chain says it looks to "push the notion of convenience".

7-Eleven Australia has launched a cashless and cardless concept convenience store where customers use their smartphones to complete their transactions.

Making the payment transaction as simple as possible, customers create a user profile on their smartphone app, linking their credit card and uploading a selfie.

“Nobody likes to wait, so eliminating queues was part of the mission for this mobile checkout. In the new concept store, customers will notice the absence of a counter. Continuing our focus on providing ultimate convenience, this year we’re trialling a catering service. That might be delivery, it might be micro store formats. We’re trying to push the notion of ‘convenience’ to its absolute limit,” 7-Eleven CEO Angus McKay said in a statement.

Customers need to download the 7-Eleven store app to shop at the cashless and cardless concept store located at 2/658 Church Street, Richmond.
