PS30 Personal Shopper

Give your customers an exceptional self-scan shopping experience

The digital world has changed the face of retail — your consumers shop, build grocery lists, clip coupons and save recipes, all online. What if you could seamlessly connect it all in your store? The PS30 Personal Shopper enables retailers to provide a transformative, low-friction and personalized in-store shopping experience, leveraging shoppers’ digital identities and preferences from their loyalty accounts. Consumers can access shopping lists, dietary recommendations and coupons; get real time directions to items; scan and bag items as they shop; get help from a virtual or live assistant with the press of a button; and skip the checkout line with tap-to-pay — all on the sleek, stylish PS30. Enhanced locationing enables retailers to push curated coupons and offers to shoppers in real time, while providing shopper insights to improve store operations and reduce labor costs. The PS30 is not just a device — it’s a catalyst for an engaging, seamless personalized shopping experience, driving greater shopper satisfaction and a smarter, more profitable store.

Engage Every Shopper on Every Shopping Trip

Advanced ergonomics and an alluring design

The beautiful and intuitive design of the PS30 welcomes your shoppers as soon as they walk into your store. Everything in the PS30 has been meticulously considered to deliver the best experience for the shopper. The smooth and seamless housing, intuitive single scan button, bright screen, haptics and an ergonomic well-balanced handle make every shopping trip a pure joy.

The durability you need for reliable operation

When you choose a device to put in the hands of your customers, you need the utmost in reliability.

With drop and tumble testing, the PS30 is elegant and built to survive the inevitable frequent drops — more durable than many personal mobile phones. With its advanced chemical resistant plastics and smooth unibody housing, associates and shoppers can quickly and easily disinfect the device before use with many approved cleaning agents — preventing the spread of germs. Charging contacts are designed to prevent the buildup of dirt that can interfere with charging. Corning® Gorilla® Glass brings maximum scratch- and shatter-resistance to two of the most vulnerable device features — the display and the imager window. And with a wide operating temperature range, the PS30 is at home everywhere in your store.

One tap device release

To unlock a device, shoppers can scan their loyalty card on the Zebra CC6000 kiosk or tap an NFC loyalty card, bank card or smartphone digital wallet on the display of the PS30. The cradle halo of a fully charged device then lights up, guiding the shopper to the unlocked device that is ready for use.

Effortless first-time every time barcode scanning

Scanning is the most important feature of the PS30. That’s why the scanner in the PS30 is packed with features that deliver a dependably simple scanning experience. Just point and scan — no need to align the scanner and the barcode. Shoppers can automatically scan barcodes when they are in the scanning range, eliminating the need to repeatedly press the scan button. And barcodes can be captured even if they are poorly printed, smudged or scratched.

Give your shoppers the ultimate self-scanning shopping experience with the PS30.

A large 4.7 inch display with exceptional clarity

The display is nearly one-third larger than its predecessor, the PS20, providing a better viewing experience and plenty of room to display real-time promotions, item information and in-store navigation, plus items in the cart and current total. Graphics are vibrant and text is sharper and easier to read.

Take on-the-spot contactless mobile payment1

Integrated NFC enables shoppers to tap on the front of the device with a contactless NFC-enabled bank card or mobile wallet payment, making payment fast and easy.2

Shoppers can get instant help with the press of a button

With the PS30, asking for help is simple. With its integrated microphone, speakers and support for voice query, shoppers can request virtual or live assistance. And associates can quickly locate shoppers that have requested assistance with the integrated advanced sensors for accurate indoor locationing and Wi-Fi 6E.

Enhanced ‘no infrastructure required’ locationing

A suite of integrated sensors (on the Plus model only) enables inexpensive indoor locationing, opening the door to information that benefits your shoppers and your business. For example, the PS30 can provide the fastest path to each item on the shopping list, optimizing the route through the store and ensuring all items are found. You can send relevant coupons and offers based on shopper location, increasing basket size and revenues by an average of 10 percent.3 You can also see the path each shopper takes — including dwell times and scan locations, as well as the effectiveness of your promotions, allowing you to optimize your store layout and detect unusual behavior that triggers the need for a rescan at checkout. 

Powerful Business Features that Deliver Big Benefits

Customize with your brand

In retail, it’s all about brand. That’s why we provide multiple options to add your store brand to the PS30. The customizable protective screen, protective boot and back label are just some of the ways you can add your unique branding to the PS30 at a minimal cost.

Never lose a device

You can add an EAS tag inside the handle that will alert the store’s security system should it pass through the security gates at the store’s exit.

In addition, with Device Tracker, an optional Zebra Mobility DNA solution, you can easily locate misplaced devices quickly and easily. The cloud-based service is easy to deploy — there’s no infrastructure to purchase, deploy or manage. And the Geiger counter style proximity indicator guides workers quickly and easily to the exact location of a missing device.

The power to support the most demanding apps

With a faster processor, more memory and storage, plus high-speed consistent Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, you get everything you need to run demanding apps, including video, anywhere in the store.

Easy battery management with PowerPrecision+

Visibility into battery statistics protects the shopper experience. On a dashboard, you can see the current charge levels of the batteries in your devices and whether they can hold a full charge, allowing you to easily identify and replace unhealthy batteries, preventing the PS30 from unexpectedly running out of power in the middle of a shopping trip.

Mobility DNA

Mobility DNA simplifies device lifecycle management and the user experience with a comprehensive suite of applications that include many no-cost tools. For example, provide users with the best possible Wi-Fi connection, every minute of every shopping trip with Mobility DNA Wireless. Enterprise Browser makes it easy to integrate PS30 features into your applications. Quickly and easily stage and deploy devices with StageNow. And more.

Easily Upgrade or Deploy New Devices

Cost effectively upgrade to the latest self-service technologies

The PS30 is backwards compatible with Zebra Personal Shopper charging infrastructure, including cradles, allowing you to preserve your existing accessory investment and deploy new devices faster.

Faster deployment with cradle setup software

Self-provisioning cradles are automatically configured during device setup, saving time and simplifying deployment.
