Shopping in a supermarket or a retail store is a common activity ,so shopping carts are familiar for all of us . A new kind of shopping cart -smart shopping cart has changed our shopping journey . More and more retailers have decided to start a smart shopping cart business plan , there are 4 core reasons .

Shopping in a supermarket can be fun if the whole shopping process is unhindered ,but most agree that they may encounter much difficulties in their shopping process , for example , they don’t know some items’ price , they need to ask the supermarket staff for help ; they may have to wait in line at the cash counter .
A smart shopping cart supports customers scan items’ bar code and pay on the cart , weighing fruits and vegetables are also available ,this means the smart cart provides customers a seamless shopping trip .
(2) Smart shopping cart makes retailers access to customers .
Retailers mostly want to acquire more information about their customers ,the more they know about their customers , the better service they can provide with their customers .
But in a physical retail store , it’s hard for retailers to acquire customers’ shopping data , they could only acquire rare information from customers’ member card ,
So far , a smart shopping cart project collects customers’ gender , age , detailed shopping preference information ,the smart shopping cart could be regarded as a new way to get access to physical customers .
(3) Smart shopping cart provides a new ad channel for branders .
