CARREFOUR has announced plans to eliminate paper receipts in Spain.
The supermarket giant will give its customers the option of receiving a digital version through its Mi Carrefour app, which allows customers to select a ‘no paper’ option when purchasing goods or using discount coupons.
The move is part of its Papel 0 initiative which intends to systematically eliminate the use of paper receipts.
The company is now notifying its million or so users of its app that they can now choose a paperless transaction at checkouts.
Carrefour has 175 hypermarkets, 114 supermarkets and 538 convenience stores across Spain.
