Retail management aims at helping the customers get the necessary item or products from the retail stores without any difficulty and in the least possible time. Nowadays people are preferring e-shopping or e-cart system, as adding to a cart is much easier & convenient than carrying a cart. Hence, many retail businesses are switching towards implementing these customer-friendly methods. The android application proposed here will act as a virtual cart to the customers.
The customers will need to scan the required items from this application & the items will be added to his/her cart. Once, all the required items have been added to the cart, the customer will then have to go to the payment counter where the counter person will scan the QR code from the customer’s app and will proceed with the payment & checkout activities.
