E-receipts, the next big thing in retailing since the loyalty card?

Tesco will be the U.K.'s first retailer to roll out e-receipts next year

Tesco will be the first U.K. retailer to offer electronic receipts next year that will be sent to customers' e-mails.

The grocer is working with tech firm eReceipts.

Tesco won't be eliminating the option of paper receipts altogether; customers will have a choice at the till.

The chairman at eReceipts is former Tesco boss, Lord Ian MacLaurin.
