NEW YORK (March 22, 2013)--Stores across the country are retiring their old-fashioned cash registers as clerks and even shoppers ring up sales on smartphones and tablets.
Barneys New York, a luxury retailer, this year plans to use iPads or iPod Touch devices for credit and debit card purchases in seven of its nearly two dozen regular-price stores.
Urban Outfitters, a teen clothing chain, ordered its last traditional register last fall and plans to go completely mobile one day.
Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, is testing a "Scan & Go" app that lets customers scan their items as they shop.
