Paper receipts may soon be a thing of the past for Tesco customers as the supermarket has begun to trial new technology aimed at doing away with them.

The new 'Tap&Tag' technology, which is currently being tried out at two stores in Essex, enables customers using a contactless card or mobile phone to pay for goods to simply tap a console at the checkout counter and receive an email receipt instantaneously.

In addition to reducing the retailer's carbon footprint and paper costs, 'Tap&Tag' is also designed to cut down on fraudulent returns, a problem which currently costs Tesco £8 million a year.
