An unmanned 24-hour, self-service store, BingoBox has been unveiled in Shanghai.
More than 10 meters square, the shop has no staff and customers can only enter the store if they scan a QR code on the door. The door locks behind you after you enter and shoppers can wander around unattended and purchase products on their own.
The store features a great variety of goods, even though not large, since BingoBox has emphasized quality rather than quantity to ensure all of its products remain fresh. The goods in BingoBox are cheaper than those in other convenience stores, which is a highlight of the store.
Customers can calculate the price of each item at the electronic cashier with the help of an exclusive label on each product and can leave the store once the shopper has paid the bill.
A shopper can also browse around the store without purchasing anything. The locked door can be opened with the help of a quick QR scan on the wall at the entrance. An alarm is triggered at the door, if anyone tries to leave the shop with any unpaid products.
