Amazon’s checkout-free stores are planning to accept customers’ cash

Amazon’s cashless stores are making preparations to accept cash.
Amazon Go launched in 2018 and uses an array of sensors, cameras, and artificial intelligence technology to track what you put in your bag as you make your way around, with your selected items automatically charged to your Amazon account as you exit the store.
The shopping experience is super-simple, but there has been increasing criticism that the system discriminates against those without a bank account or smartphone, both of which are needed to shop at the high-tech store. A 2017 study categorized around 6.5 percent of U.S. households (about 8.4 million people) as unbanked.
News of the company’s move toward accepting cash at its Go stores came via a CNBC report on Wednesday, April 10, and was later confirmed by Amazon, though the company declined to offer detai暗黑者ls of a timeline for the rollout.
While the move to accept cash payments means Amazon would be able to open its Go stores in places where cashless outlets are banned, it’s likely to frustrate executives who had their sights set on offering a checkout-free experience for all of its shoppers.
It’ll also mean that Amazon, a comp康乃馨怎样养,宜家在市中心开店、丝芙兰首进韩国、亚马逊无人商铺也收现金了等五条双语资讯 | iziRetail抢手,贾乃亮any that’s been investing heavily in robot and A.I. technology to reduce its human workforce across its business, may need to employ more people to work at the registers — unless, of course, it installs self-checkout machines.
Adding such facilities also has the potential to create lines d康乃馨怎样养,宜家在市中心开店、丝芙兰首进韩国、亚马逊无人商铺也收现金了等五条双语资讯 | iziRetail抢手,贾乃亮uring busy periods, which could impact the shopping experience.
Seattle-based Amazon currently operates 10 Amazon Go sites across the U.S. — four in its home city, four in Chicago, and two in San Francisco, though it reportedly has plans to open as ma美国恶霸犬ny as 3,000 stores by 2021.
