Seen In The Wild: Old Navy Using Apple Point of Sale System
The Apple-focused blog 9to5Mac has an interesting tip from an anonymous reader who sent along a picture from an Old Navy store depicting an Apple point of sale device being used at check-out.
Late last year there were rumors that Apple would release ther EasyPay point-of-sale system as a commercial product to third parties. Last month Apple’s first customer, Gap Inc’s Old Navy subsidiary began piloting them. We’re told there is one per store and they are kept in a safe when not in use.
According to the post, the image shows a customer checking out at her local Old Navy store via the Apple-developed system and signing for her purchase with her finger. The system, according to the post, is an "Apple PoS (not one of many third party systems that use an iPod to make transactions) system but rebranded ‘ZipPay’ for third parties."
A remote system like this is in Boston at the Apple store on Boylston Street. If the one the picture shows is anything like the one in Boston, the system prints receipt's wireless to printers that are located throughout the store, as the post suggests.
A Gap. Inc. spokeswomen confirmed Apple’s new business for 9to5Mac.
