They stopped in 2019 as a cost-cutting measure.
It was a sensible decision considering that for the majority of the time when they were on sale that a member of staff would be standing there not selling many, except for the day or two before November 5th when a small queue would form.
Tesco haven't manned the counter full time in a long while, an announcement goes out for somebody everytime a customer is seen waiting at the desk.

Has anyone else got the new style self scan interface on the scan as you shop checkouts? Instant transfer from the guns, readable receipts will *full product names*, and a much simpler set of buttons on the screen.

Yes - there's a rating screen at the end so I assume they're trialling it on scan as you shop.

It looks loads smarter, and is far more responsive - so hopefully it does get a wider rollout.

It also dispenses with the silly voiceover that was supposed to sound natural but actually sounds ridiculous. "Look up items, or have a browse" - I mean really... the new one sounds much more normal.

Yes. Has a feature/bug whereby you can keep scanning/tapping/swiping/inserting different Clubcards.

This is particularly annoying for me, as I want to pay on my Tesco Premium Credit Card, but doing so drops my Colleague Clubcard (and thus my Colleague Discount, and my Clubcard Plus discounts).

There are still branches around here which have the old interface with the big Finish & Pay button - and take a good minute or two to fully transfer a big shop.

For those curious about the new tills

Probably should fix the issue with the uploader and vertical photos at some point...

Asda are trialling eSELs


Wonder if this trial will actually go anywhere.

So, something I've noticed with the new till software is it doesn't always transmit the things in the order you scanned it in.

In addition, multibuy offers get the discount split across the items, my £3 meal deal includes distinct amounts taken off each item.

I used a Tesco trolley today which had the flowers/multipack holder instructions in Czech (after Google translating it).
