Blur the lines between physical and digital space

Mobile self-checkout empowers in-store shoppers to use their phones to avoid the otherwise intricate labyrinth of a typical checkout flow. It brings digital marketing into the very tangible context of the brick-and- mortar store, finally blurring the lines between the digital and the physical world.

How does it work?

The workflow is smooth and streamlined: a customer navigates from their phone to a short URL, scans the product’s barcode, and checks it out using Apple Pay, Google Pay or a credit card. The “app-less” approach makes the whole process fast and user friendly.

Simple and intuitive

No app required

Cut barriers to customers and forget smartphone storage worries with our browser-based, progressive web application.

Fast, easy checkout

Your customers just have to hit a URL, scan a barcode, and checkout using Apple Pay, Google Pay or credit card.

Get more product information

Learn more about a product by exploring other images and descriptions all via the same progressive web app.

The Moltin self-checkout experience means…

Happier customers

No queues and kiosks means your customers spend less time waiting and more time shopping. 

Productive employees

Shorter queues let your employees interact with customers and educate them on your products. 

Extend commerce to new channels

Less queuing means less ‘walkouts’, higher numbers of sales and increased customer loyalty.

Reduced costs

Save money by operating fewer kiosks and claim back shop floor space for selling. 

On top of that…

The self-checkout progressive web app, optimized for mobile, is designed to behave like an app, but being fully browser-based, it’s compelling to the consumer as it behaves like a native application, and even better for the implementer, as they have the flexibility, speed and freedom of native browser tooling.

It’s easy to implement

Go from idea to deployment in just a matter of weeks and just a few lines of code.

Integrate your way

Use existing inventory systems, payment gateways or internal systems and just layer Moltin on top.

It’s for any device

The progressive web application is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones.

Stance were sick of waiting in lines so they put the solution into action.

Paul Zaengle Executive Vice President of Direct to Consumer at Stance

“We are really excited to be at the forefront of the retail experience by offering a truly hassle-free self-checkout experience in our stores.

People don’t want to wait in line, and they don’t want to download an app to avoid a line either. This solution combines the richness of a physical retail store visit with the convenience of ecommerce to give our guests the best experience possible.

It essentially means never wait in a line again in a Stance store.”

Built with simplicity in mind

Get a Product

Once a product is scanned, the app uses the barcode information to request a product from the Products API that returns to the interface information such as price and product description.

Add to Cart

On adding the product to a cart, the app communicates with the Carts API to create a cart with a unique reference number to add the product to.

Gateway integration

Moltin offers a wide choice of payment integrations such as Stripe, CardConnect, Braintree, Adyen, or manual (for custom integrations like PayPal).

Authorize and capture payment

Moltin’s API abstracts the necessary interactions with various payment gateways into a standard set of simplistic API calls to authorize and capture billing information.

Get email confirmation

Additional integrations like email allows payment confirmation to be sent right into the customer’s inbox automatically and as part of the normal Moltin checkout process.

How Stance did it!

The solution is available to all customers as a reference application that can be customized to unique business needs. Moltin’s APIs can connect to existing catalogs, payment gateways and POS systems, allowing retailers to manage store catalogs, inventory and order processing with their existing systems, if desired.

Stance self-checkout solution, powered by the Moltin API backend, uses a number of microservices plugged into their existing website and integrated with their specific POS system and payment gateway. The payment experience is optimized through the Stripe platform running alongside Moltin APIs.
