HonestBox is taking the US by storm

10 stores and another 50-100 in sight during 2024

Stockholm, April 11, 2024 – The Swedish technology company for unmanned stores HonestBox is expanding strongly in the United States. With 10 new stores in operation and monthly growth, the future looks bright.

“The market in the US is huge, and HonestBox’s technology seems to be something that store owners in the US can really enjoy. We believe in a growth of 50-100 stores in the US in 2024,” says CEO Magnus Berglund.

HonestBox’s concept is simple: The customer uses his mobile phone to identify himself with one of HonestBox’s identification solutions. The customer then unlocks stores and stores via their mobile phone or in an ATM. Payment takes place via the selected payment solution, e.g. with the customer’s mobile phone or through a card reader. The system contains functions that make it possible to control who comes in and out. This model has proven popular with customers in Sweden, and now HonestBox is looking forward to taking its success to the US.

“We are convinced that HonestBox can revolutionize the way people shop in the US. Our technology is easy to use, practical and efficient,” says CEO Magnus Berglund.

HonestBox’s expansion to the USA is clear proof that HonestBox is a force to be reckoned with in the global retail trade.

Transiro and HonestBox begin strategic collaboration


Strategic collaboration to reform unmanned store systems

Transiro, one of the leading suppliers of business systems in iron, paint and the construction trade with Kassanova, signs a strategic cooperation agreement with HonestBox, a leading player in Europe in unmanned store systems with 600 customers in 7 countries. This partnership aims to create a seamless integration of Transiro’s business system Kassanova with HonestBox’s innovative solutions. This
enables a fully integrated system and opens up new markets.

Unmanned stores have become a necessity to be able to offer services at the countryside and has also proven to be a competitive advantage in today’s world dynamic market. By reducing the need for personnel for cash transactions and store monitoring enable unmanned stores significant cost savings, primarily through reduced salary costs, but also increased service at the consumer level.

The benefits of unmanned stores range from the ability to offer round-the-clock sales without the need for staff, to satisfy customers’ wishes to shop outside regular opening hours. Unmanned stores, equipped with state-of-the-art security systems, minimizes the risk of theft and fraud, which creates a safe shopping environment for customers.

With this collaboration between Transiro and HonestBox, Transiro will be in at the forefront of tomorrow’s cash system development. Transiro and HonestBox will deliver a unified solution for hybrid stores that are partially unmanned and for completely unmanned stores. For traders, this means increased flexibility and opportunity to offer a better service to customers. Through the integration with HonestBox will Transiro broaden its product range and attract new customers within several markets and improve the offer to existing ones.

How does self-scanning work?

HonestBox logotyp


Self-scanning, also called “Scan and Go” or “Self-Checkout,” is a technology that allows customers to scan their own items in a store and pay for them without having to go through a traditional checkout. This saves time for both customers and store staff and provides a more efficient shopping experience. Self-scanning works as follows:

  1. Customers get access to a handheld scanner or a smartphone app when they enter the store. In some cases, stores can offer a scanner that is integrated with a shopping cart or basket.
  2. When customers pick up an item they want to buy, they scan the barcode on the item using the handheld scanner or the app. The information about the item, including the price, is stored in the scanner or app.
  3. If an item is missing a barcode or if there are any problems with scanning, customers can usually search for the item manually in the scanner or app and add it that way.
  4. When the customers are done with their shopping and have scanned all the goods, they go to a self-service checkout. Here, the information from the scanner or app is transferred to the cash register system.
  5. The customer checks that all goods have been added correctly and pays for the purchases, either by card, cash, or mobile payment.
  6. After payment, the customer receives a receipt, either in paper form or digitally, and can leave the store.

It is important to note that stores often have security measures in place to prevent theft and misuse of the self-scanning system. This may involve random checks of customers’ goods, surveillance cameras, and staff monitoring the self-service area.

HonestBox also provides self-scanning solutions. We then work with scan and go and with snabbkassa. And completely without the need to download an app first.

Advantages of unmanned commerce in rural areas

Advantages of unmanned commerce in rural areas

Unmanned trading, also called automated trading or machine trading, means that there is no human interaction in the buying or selling process. Instead, machines, such as vending machines, are used to allow customers to purchase products in a self-service manner.

Unmanned trading can have a number of advantages, especially in rural areas where it can be difficult to find staff to run a trade. Then it is advantageous to set up an unmanned store or hybrid shop. Some of these benefits may be:

  • Lower staff costs: As no human interaction is required, unmanned retail can be a more cost-effective solution than a traditional shop with staff.
  • Increased accessibility factor: Unmanned trade can be open 24/7, which can be helpful for customers living in rural areas who may not be able to shop during traditional opening hours.
  • Reduced risk of crime: As unmanned commerce requires no human interaction, it reduces the risk of robbery and other crimes.
  • Opportunity to offer a greater range of products: By using unmanned commerce, one can offer a greater amount of products than would be possible with a manned store.
  • Ability to reach a wider customer base: Unmanned retail can be a good way to reach a wider customer base, including people who live in rural areas but do not have the opportunity to shop during traditional opening hours.
