Système et procédé automatique de vente comportant un lecteur (14) portatif des codes-barres inscrits sur des articles en vente et un support (16) de lecteur à accès limité ne laissant saisir le lecteur qu'en cas d'insertion d'une carte de payement autorisée. Plusieurs articles en vente étant présentés dans un magasin (30) pour permettre à un acheteur d'en sélectionner un, le client balaie le code barres de celui qu'il a sélectionné. La carte de paiement est alors débitée du prix d'achat, puis restituée au client.
