Market X is a brand new, technology-driven concept in the retail industry allowing customers to shop without the use of a bank card or cash. This ground-breaking technology eliminates the need for tills and cashiers; meaning the customer journey is both smoother and faster.

Levy UK+I are part of the Compass Group and have partnered with global autonomous retail specialist AiFi to develop this exciting new “grab and go” convenience store concept.
Counterline has supported both their initial Flutter store project, launched in Flutter Entertainment’s HQ in Dublin in February 2022 and more recently at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium which went live in August.
Using 74 AI cameras placed strategically around the store, customers can simply tap in with their smartphone using the Time2Eat app, select their items and walk out.
This is not facial recognition, the system works by creating an anonymous avatar for each customer that can be tracked around the store, collecting the price data of the products they pick up, and then charging the customers’ previously chosen payment method once they have left.
The project was supplied and delivered through our distributor partner Benchmark Designs Ltd.
Paul Purslow, Counterline’s Sales Director commented “We are delighted to have worked with Benchmark Designs, the Compass Group and AiFi on their new Market X retail concept.
It was great to have our iCapacity range of multidecks supporting a revolution in food service with the first ever frictionless store in Ireland. The Market X concept has been very well received and is now being introduced in a variety of locations in the sporting and event sector across the UK.”
