Tips for using Quick Check


You need to scan every item before placing it into your bag, including products on offer – even when it is buy one get one free. Some promotions will not register on your handset but will be applied when you check out.

2 Weigh items

Some fruit and vegetables need to be weighed. Place your product on the scales in the aisle and follow instructions to get a barcode label.


3 CHECK Loose items

Some fruit, vegetables and bakery items don’t have a barcode on the product. Use the ‘Scan me’ barcode on the shelf edge.

4 Security tags

Scan the item and keep it separate in your trolley. Declare the item to a Partner at the checkout to have the tag removed.

Occasional rescans

As part of the process, we’ll occasionally rescan your shop, just to make sure that you’re charged correctly. Our Partners will assist you with this process.
