As mobile devices become more prevalent, so too is technology such as mobile payments. One such method for mobile payments is through Beacon from PayPal. Late last year, we partnered with PayPal at the LeWeb conference in Paris to show how Beacon would transform retail through a ‘hands-free’ shopping experience.
For the event, Zugara worked with PayPal to create a unique experience for attendees. We customized the WSS For Kiosks software to work on a local network with Android-based tablets. The tablets acted as POS (Point of Sale) devices that would allow shoppers to choose items to ‘try on’. Items selected on the tablets were then sent to the display for interaction. The attendee/shopper could view the item they had selected and with a wave of a hand, checkout via PayPal. Once an attendee checked out with their selected item, the selected shirt and design was printed on-demand at the booth.
As we continue to develop the WSS for Kiosks software, we will be integrating new and exciting technologies such as Beacon. We will also be offering a new in-store retail Virtual Dressing Room technology soon, so please be on the lookout for updates on our blog and site!
