Nobody likes to wait in line to pay for an item especially if it’s an item you were on the fence about and standing in the line gives you time to think about it, now with the POS (point of sale) device, multiple checkouts going on at once. Nordstrom is one of those stores and they have adopted the iPhone to be used as their POS device which not only allowed the salesperson from conducting a transaction with the device. But at the same time it allow them to check whether they had a certain item in stock and all of this was done via the iPhone…………

Back in May, Nordstrom announced plans to set-up about 5,000 mobile checkout devices in their stores by the start of their anniversary sale in July  and it looks like they are going to meet that goal. One of our reporters on the west coast, was shopping at Nordstrom this week and caught a salesperson using one of these iPhone POS devices. They even received an e-receipt for their purchase. The folks over at Appatomy, recently wrote about how a Nordstrom employee checked to see if a certain size they were looking for was in stock, all with their iPhone. How did the salesperson do that you may ask?  The salesperson explained that they could search the entire stock of the store, all from the device. When it came time for the blogger at Appatomy to purchase their items, the items were scanned by the Mobile POS system and then they were given a choice on how to receive their receipt. They too chose the emailed version. It may seem gimmicky at first and hard for traditional shoppers to adapt to and traditional high-end department store like Nordstrom can be an early adopter of mobile technology.
