Amazon Launches Cashier-Free Store For Ultimate Efficiency
The retailer is looking to make shopping even faster by letting customers instantly pay as they walk out the door
There are many stores that are working on ways to help customers get out of the store faster with their many wares. However, Amazon is looking to make that process even faster by creating a store that does away with cashiers and lines all together.
Located in the company’s home town of Seattle, Washington, the Amazon Go store is like your typical convenience store. It contains snacks, pre-made food, some of the more essential grocery items. However, it’s real draw is that customers won’t have to wait in any lines or deal with any cashiers of any kind. Customers scan a special code from an accompanying app to enter the establishment, and Amazon uses multiple sensors and computer vision to add what you’re picking up along the way to your cart automatically.
