What is Scan and go?
It’s the smarter and quicker way to shop in store. Keep track of what you’re spending as you go and save time by speeding up the checkout process. Get in and out in a flash, so you’ve got more time to crack on with those big DIY projects! Simply download the B&Q app on your phone to start shopping in store with Scan and go.
How does it work?
Step 1 – Download the B&Q app
First things first, download the B&Q app if you haven't already. Then simply open the app on your phone and select ‘Scan and shop’.
Step 2 - Scan as you shop in store
Scan the items you want to buy using your phones camera as you walk around the store, once you’ve scanned an item you can place it straight into your trolley.
Step 3 – Head to checkout
Once you’ve finished scanning everything you need, select ‘Finish & pay’. We’ll generate a single barcode which you can show to a colleague at a till, or scan at self-checkout.
Step 4 – Pay
No need to unload your trolley! Once you’re ready to pay, show the auto-generated barcode to a colleague at a till, or scan it at self-checkout. If you have a discount card or any vouchers to spend, swipe them at the till or self-checkout before paying.

Really easy to use, helpful when trying to find stuff in store and I like the scan and go feature to get through check out easier. Great to see a high street stalwart showing some personality during Pride too! Nice one B&Q.
