Zaandam, Netherlands – Beginning this month, Dutch supermarket brand Albert Heijn is testing "tap to go" technology at one of its convenience stores, allowing customers to pay for items without going through the checkout.

The technology, which is being piloted at the AH To Go store at parent company Ahold Delhaize’s support office in Zaandam, Netherlands, allows customers to  register via an app, select an item, tap an electronic shelf card (or, in the near future, a smartphone) and leave the store.

Within 10 minutes, the money is automatically transferred from their bank account, Ahold Delhaize said in a news release. 

The cashless system is being developed in collaboration with technology providers and a bank. It will be rolled out to other AH To Go stores in the Netherlands by June 2018.
