7-Eleven’s Mobile Checkout contactless shopping feature is available at more than 3,000 participating 7-Eleven stores in 32 states and Washington, D.C.

Using the 7-Eleven app, customers can scan items and pay for purchases without standing in a checkout line. The frictionless shopping experience is a benefit of the 7Rewards loyalty program, through which members can earn and redeem points on purchases and receive coupons and promotional pricing. 7-Eleven developed the technology itself and began testing the feature in Dallas in 2018 and Manhattan in 2019.

“Even prior to the pandemic, we knew that customers were looking for a more convenient shopping experience, including less time spent waiting in line,” says Raghu Mahadevan, senior vice president and chief digital officer. “The pandemic drastically accelerated our plans to roll this feature out to the greater U.S. population.”

The retailer has had nearly 2 million customers use Mobile Checkout and plans to expand it to all of its U.S. stores by the end of 2022, it says.
