Amazon Opens Checkout-Free 'Amazon Go' Grocery Store

Amazon today opened up its checkout-free grocery store "Amazon Go" to the Seattle public. Amazon Go is a new kind of store with no checkout required. With Just Walk Out Shopping experience, simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take the products you want, and go! No lines, no checkout.

Amazon Go, in Seattle, has been tested by staff for the past year.

It uses hundreds of ceiling-mounted cameras and electronic sensors to identify each customer and track what items they select.

Purchases are billed to customers' credit cards when they leave the store.

On entering the store, shoppers walk through gates similar to those in the London underground, swiping their smartphones loaded with the Amazon Go app.

Then they are free to put any of the sandwiches, salads, drinks and biscuits on the shelves straight into their own shopping bags.

There's no need for a trolley or basket, since you won't be unpacking it again at the till. In fact, unless you need to be ID-checked for an alcohol purchase, there's also no need for any human interaction at all.




























With the help of sensors on the shelves, items are added to customers' Amazon Go account as they pick them up - and delete any they put back. And an electronic receipt is issued as they exit.

Amazon Go is located at 2131 7th Ave, Seattle, WA, near the corner of 7th and Blanchard. It is open ed 7AM - 9PM, Monday through Friday.
