business news in context, analysis with attitude

In the UK, Retail Gazette reports that Tesco "has rolled out new Tap&Tag technology, which aims to replace paper receipts completely with digital ones."

The story says that the new system will allow consumers "using a contactless card or mobile phone payment" to "simply tap a console at the checkout counter and receive their receipt via email instantly."
KC's View:
They've been doing this at the Apple Store forever. Not sure why it is taking so long for other retailers to realize that offering emailed receipts is not just a good idea, but an inevitable one.
