The IBM Payment Systems team was at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Big Show 2014 this week demonstrating a mobility solution that retailers can use in stores. The demo simulates an in-store shopping experience using the IBM Payment Systems mobile app.The app allows shoppers to scan the barcode of a product they wish to purchase and then complete the checkout of that purchase right from the mobile app. The app uses a mobile wallet to complete the transaction with a credit or debit card, a direct online bank transfer or Paypal. Upon completion of the transaction, a QR code is generated, and a clerk then scans this QR to confirm payment as the customer exits the store.
The following video shows the mobile app in action.
