The new checkout system lets business track cash and debit card transactions. The iPad device replaces a traditional register. Customers will redeem Groupon vouchers by telling the cashier their name. Customers who have the Groupon app on their smartphone and have Bluetooth loaded will see their discount recognized automatically when they enter the store.

 

Groupon's new checkout system is called the Gnome and features payment processing. That processing is charged at a rate of 1.8% plus 15 cents per transaction for MasterCard and Visa. The Gnome iPad system will cost retailers $10 per month.
