The present research concentrates on automation of retail process that involves customers. One can save on total man power required to manage a physical retail store and store tills if RFID at item level is implemented in a retail store. One can reduce number of persons at Security / Payment till required at store counter and exit. Although RFID can automate and reduce human errors at payment counters. A commercial transaction takes place the moment a customer (buyer) reaches the store exit gate. The proposed solution implemented will cut down operational cost for retail stores and a business can pass the benefit to customers. It will ease customer shopping by extending shopping hours in retail physical stores. The work that has been carried out to produce a conceptual system that implements and integrates a RFID based message system with existing transactional based E-commerce applications. The research conducts a comparative overview of the various technological frameworks, together with transaction and data transfer. The researched and the applied architecture for the proposed prototype system minimize changes on the existing applications and network design. The results of the experiment using a prototype are analyzed. The study concludes with the reviews and considers how the issues highlighted may be addressed in order to achieve an improved framework through discussing possible solutions. The prototype system has been successfully developed. With the prototype one can achieve objective of unattended store. The tests have demonstrated that it is possible to make such system with required security, reliability and scalability.
