Last year, when so many companies have been damaged by the coronavirus pandemic, the growth of Amazon is incredible. The company continues to announce higher profits, changes, and technological advancements.
Amazon plans to implement new technology in its physical stores, known as Amazon Go. According to CNet, the company founded by Jeff Bezos will allow people to use a system known as Amazon One, which enables making payments by scanning their hands.
“Amazon One is a fast, convenient, and contactless way for people to use the palm of their hand to do everyday activities like paying at a store, presenting a loyalty card, entering a location such as a stadium, or entering work without effort. The service is designed to be very secure and uses custom algorithms and hardware to create a person's unique palm signature, ”said Dilip Kumar, Amazon's vice president of technology.
Customers can sign up for Amazon One by going to one of the physical Amazon Go stores. The process requires you to place your hand on an Amazon One device, and in less than a minute, it will associate your palm with your credit card.
You can sign up using just one palm or both. Once you do this, you can enter Amazon Go stores by scanning your hand.
Amazon said it plans to expand the technology across all of its stores in the coming months and also plans to offer Amazon One to third parties such as retail sites, stadiums, and office buildings.
