seattle - Amazon has a new market on the eye. The American company, the world's largest online store, also seems to want to become a supermarket chain. With self-scanners, without cash registers and no employees.
The concept is called Amazon Go. There is already a test store in Seattle. The store has sensors and customers using an app. If someone gets a product from a shelf and stops in a bag, it will appear in a shopping cart in the app. When leaving the store, the account is debited from the customer's account.
'' No Lines. No Checkout. (No, Seriously.) '' Is the supermarket advertising slogan. Amazon wants to protect the slogan and has therefore reported the slogan to the European and British authorities. That suggests that Amazon also wants to roll out the shop here. Amazon already has its own service to deliver groceries, AmazonFresh.
