Add 7 Eleven to the list of places trying to launch "cashier-less" stores.

Amazon launched the first one and Sam's Club announced its own version last week.

Now, 7 Eleven says it'll test out a check-out process called "scan and pay." You scan your things on your phone, then use an app to pay.

You cannot buy hot foods, lottery tickets, tobacco, or alcohol using this new technology. 7 Eleven is testing it in Dallas and wants to expand next year.
