Amazon has begun shopping its cashierless checkout tech to other retailers.
Amazon has technology others retailers want Called “Just Walk Out,” the technology lets you just walk out of a store without paying, or more importantly talking to, anyone.
First, You swipe your credit card at a turnstile to enter.
The technology that powers self-driving cars keeps track of what you take off the shelf and put in your shopping cart.
Then, you walk out and your credit card is charged. Amazon already uses this tech at 25 AmazonGo convenience stores and a full-sized, cashierless grocery store it opened in Seattle last month.
Labor rights groups say….This so-called cashierless technology is nothing but a Trojan horse that will let Amazon control and monopolize competing retailers,” said the president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.
