Zippin Zippin’s checkout-free platform eliminates friction from the shopping experience. But, with purchases of age-restricted items (like beer), there’s still a significant bottleneck: manual ID checks. Guests can fly through stores in just 30 seconds, but often wait longer for age verification. Zippin’s integration with digital identity verification services for store entry eliminates this final bottleneck. Guests registered with an age verification service use a facial scan to enter the store, pay for their purchase, and verify their age/identity. Shoppers can pass through Zippin powered stores more quickly and operators gain a more secure process for age verification. Featured
