Imagine clothes shopping at a department store. You have several items in your arms and walk to a register. You drop the pile onto the checkout counter and watch in amazement as all your items automatically appear on a screen in front of you, waiting for payment. Somehow, the lot was magically scanned simply by dropping them onto the checkout counter!
RFID use at Point of Sale (PoS) checkout is now available where items are automatically transmitted into the register by simply placing them on the counter. No need to locate the barcode, no swiping, no separating, no rotating, no lasers. Simply dropping the pile onto the counter is all that is required. For the “Checkout Scanner” scenario, we have located the perfect Short Range Point of Sale RFID Scanner that uses keyboard emulation (just like barcode scanners) to automatically add all items on the checkout counter directly into the register.
This PoS RFID scanner reads all RFID labels up to 1 ft (12 inches).
However, many retailers are concerned that other items may be inadvertently scanned inside the 12 inch scan area and added to a customer’s order. They are interested in a Point of Sale scanner with much shorter scan range so that no items are accidentally added into the customer’s order.
For these retailers, we have the “Touch and Go” UHF RFID PoS Scanner which only reads RFID labels on contact, or up to only 1 inch from the scanner.
Use either scanner at checkout depending on the particular retail use case. What do you think? Is retail ready to migrate to RFID Point of Sale scanners? If so, do you think read range should be 1 inch or up to 12 inches?
The eChain RFID Point of Sale (POS) Scanner is a professional UHF RFID scanner that replaces your barcode scanner at point-of-sale and check-out registers. An elegant yet durable RFID reader unit that incorporates an RFID reader and antenna into a single, elegant plug-and-play unit that connects to a USB port for power and data.
Moving from barcode scanning to RFID scanning is as simple as plugging this reader into your checkout system USB port.
This is probably the easiest RFID reader on the market to use and comes pre-configured and ready to use out of the box! Simply plug into your computer. RFID Tag scans are automatically transmitted to your open application or notepad-type text app using keyboard wedge technology just like a barcode reader. Will automatically sent RFID EPC Tag number directly into your shopping cart application for totally automated checkout.
eChain has added the option for our customers to use their own negotiated or preferred shippers to save money on shipping and freight charges! Shipping large orders and technology internationally can become very expensive. At eChain Technology we are committed to providing the best value products to our customers. We do not make money from shipping. However, sometimes our customers may have negotiated discounts with carriers that can make shipping much more affordable for them than we can provide ourselves.
Don’t let high shipping costs keep you from purchasing. Select “Use My Own Shipping Account” option from the Shopping Cart for a zero-charge shipping option at Checkout. Then provide your shipping account number for primary carriers USPS, FedEx, DHL or UPS. It is that simple.
