Recently in my area supermarkets,there have been new changes..
They added a new special area for Auto Cashier...meaning is you can be your very own cashier..hehe..
The photo above is the auto cashier machine..
You just have to scan the bar code of your purchase,located at the square window,and just follow the instructions...
I asked my daughter to do the auto cashier process,while I took these photos with my handphone.
Notice the plastic bags on the left hand side..you can open them out to be ready when you have scaned your purchase and just put it into these plastic bags.
But ,from this April 1 st,onwards we will be charge a small amount if we use this plastic bag,so we would have to use our own shopping bags or shopping basket to bring back our purchase.

After scanning all the purchase,the t.v icon will show ,how much you have to pay.It is really very easy,just like a ATM machine,you just have to press whether you want to pay by cash or by credit card.
This time ,I purposely try to pay by cash..the process is just like an auto venting machine for soft drinks.
You just have to insert the notes into the machine and also coins.The amount will automatically appear in the t.v icon.So even if you do not have small changes,you can over pay,and the small changes will comes out in another compartment of this machine.
I find this system is very nice as the next person will have to wait in a yellow line,until there is a vacant machine available.
There are eight machines,four on each row,so we have our own privacy..scaning and paying for our purchase.
There are the normal cashier area also where the cashier will attend to you,but sometimes,they are so crowded and I feel this auto cashier machine will sure comes in handy.
You do not need to worry even if you make a mistake as there is also a buttom to press for help.A sales personal will come and assist you...not bad ,right???(^0^)
