Marks & Spencer the food and retail market are expanding the number of stores offering its Mobile Pay Go technology more than tripling the current number of stores. The app allows users to pay for goods with their smartphone without the need to visit a till.

The expansion is driven by the shift towards contact-free shopping amid the pandemic, M&S is aiming to bring its Mobile Pay Go technology to shoppers outside the London area, where the technology has been largely implemented.
Over 10,000 new customers have used Mobile Pay Go since March, and now customers in Belfast, Aberystwyth, Falkirk and Dover will have access to the technology.

“As part of our Never the Same Again programme, we’re accelerating the pace of our transformation – and that includes creating digitally connected stores that are fit for the future,” M&S director of stores Helen Milford said.

“This rollout takes our increasingly popular Mobile Pay-Go technology nationwide for the first time, allowing more customers to enjoy a seamless checkout-free experience through the M&S app.

“With more customers starting to return to the workplace, this provides a quick and convenient lunchtime solution – making it easy to pop in, grab your items and be on your way.”

At Custom Labels we specialise in the use of variable data in the form of QR, barcoding and data matrix. This data can be used for a wide range of applications including asset identification, production tracking, quality control, document management and marketing.

Custom Labels have manufactured QR code labels for over 20 years, initially with fixed web addresses or just sequential numbers. Advancements have meant that this can now be applied to basic asset identification, website promotion and more recently QR code Tags have become an essential part of online app and web-related data packages.
