Easy selling of newspapers in Hong Kong

This photo shows a stack of papers outside a 7-Eleven store. Newspaper customers don’t even have to enter the store. They tap and go – on the device on the side of the newspaper stand.

While newsagents would prefer to get retailers in-store and buying other items, c-stores are happy to get a few cents by serving customers who don;t have to queue to buy a newspaper.
