Asda has introduced a facility at the Asda Groceries site to allow online shoppers to create a shopping list simply by typing in key details from a receipt from a previous store visit.

According to The Snow Patrol, which first noticed this addition to Asda’s rapidly evolving site, after “typing in the store number, the operator number, the till number, the transaction number, and the date and time of the order, the customer can retrieve the list of items they bought in-store.”
