Walmart[4] wants to help shoppers avoid long checkout lines this Discount Holidays © holiday season. For the first time, the company is giving employees in the busiest sections of its stores the power to process shoppers’ purchases using mobile devices. These employees will be able to swipe customers’ credit or debit cards and provide paper receipts using Bluetooth printers strapped to their waists.

It’s meant to allow shoppers purchasing a small number of items to bypass long lines at store registers. Walmart started testing the service, called Check Out With Me, in the lawn and garden departments of 350 stores earlier this year.
