Retailers don’t want to loose customers
during the transformation of an existing location into an autonomous store, hybrid solution allows retailers to offer checkout with both a cashier and AiFi’s autonomous checkout free technology.
Hybrid Solution by AiFi is growing in popularity because it allows customers to gradually make the switch to autonomous shopping vs. going fully autonomous from day one. At the AiGo store in Shanghai we have two entry gates. The gate on the right remains closed and customers enter with app or credit card. The gate on the left remains open when cashiers are present so customers can enter freely and checkout with a cashier. After the cashiers leave, the gate on the left closes and converts to an autonomous shopping entry gate that requires the app or credit card to enter which allows the store to remain open 24/7.
