Live from the Stance Soho store, Moltin announces global availability of Self Checkout Solutions for In-Store and Pop-up Events.

Manhattan, NY, USA - March, 27th, 2019 - Moltin, the only Commerce unPlatform, today announced the global availability of their In-Store Self Checkout and Pop-up Event Self Checkout solutions, which enable every brand and retailer to deliver innovative and engaging shopping experiences that rivals Amazon Go. These new solutions will delight consumers by empowering them to buy the things they want, on-demand using their own mobile phone, both in-store and at events such as concerts, trade shows, sporting events, and festivals.

Moltin is hosting a live “open house” launch event from 12pm - 1pm and 5pm - 7pm ET on Wednesday, March 27th, at the Stance Soho store located at 510 Broadway, New York, NY 10012. The launch event will showcase live demos of the In-Store Self Checkout solution, wine and cheese, prize giveaways, and more. Dozens of brands and press organizations have already registered, and we hope to see you there too.

Brands and Retailers are under more pressure than ever to deliver innovative, engaging experiences that delight consumers, but legacy eCommerce Platforms like Shopify, Salesforce Commerce Cloud, Magento, and Hybris are far too rigid and prevent organizations from delivering innovative new experiences. After initially partnering with Stance for the beta launch of the In-Store Self Checkout solution in late 2018, and following with Deckers Brands using the Pop-up Event Self Checkout solution for several marathons, Moltin is now making both of these solutions globally available so all brands and retailers can deliver an Amazon Go-style shopping experience.

Benefits to consumers:

  • No App to download

  • No waiting in line

  • Fun, engaging shopping experience

Benefits to Brands and Retailers:

  • Build and deploy in only a few weeks

  • Over 90% email capture

  • No POS infrastructure to manage

"It's important to us that every aspect of the Stance store journey upholds our brand standards and creates an excellent experience for our guests." said Paul Zaengle, Executive Vice President of Direct-to-Consumer at Stance. "Our Self Checkout solution allows guests to choose a fast, convenient alternative to waiting in line to pay. And it enables our store team to spend more time educating our guests on our quality and innovation, instead of being stuck behind a point of sale device."

Unlike other Self Checkout solutions that require consumers to download an app, the Moltin-powered Self Checkout solutions are based on a progressive web application optimized for mobile browsers, which means an easy, frictionless experience for consumers. The customer simply scans a QR code or navigates to a short URL from their phone, scans the barcodes on product tags, then completes the checkout using Apple Pay, Google Pay, or a credit card. On the backend, Moltin powers both Self Checkout solutions with APIs that submit product information to the application, create the cart, add products, and process the checkout. The API backend allows the solution to integrate seamlessly with third-party systems, as well as connecting to existing catalogs, payment gateways, and POS systems, allowing retailers to manage store catalogs, inventory, and order processing with their existing systems.
