Amazon Go, which was recently launched in the United Kingdom, is the latest twist on an age old concept – shopping from home. The company says it wants to bring the store front to people who either don’t have time to commute to the nearest store or simply prefer to do their shopping at home, without standing in line or being forced to sit down and wait for others to pay for what they want. It aims to make online shopping easier and more convenient.
Currently, it’s only available in selected areas of the UK such as England, Scotland and Wales. However, it will eventually be available in all the countries of the UK. Retailers like Tesco, Argos, Sainsbury’s and John Lewis already offer some form of online shopping.
Amazon Go will compete directly with Tesco, Britain’s largest supermarket group, in terms of both product range and convenience. The company claims that its checkout-free store will offer “literally everything a shopper could possibly want at the touch of a button”. Customers can shop by brand, price range or even browse according to specific categories. Online shoppers also have the option of paying by PayPal, and the company says it is working on other payment options, including an iPhone payment platform.
Amazon Go, which will initially target the urban dweller, has already started to target its online competition. Its app allows customers to search for items, pay with debit or credit cards and add friends and family to the list. It also offers “gourmet foods” that are delivered right to your doorstep. Other features in the app include grocery store reviews, personalized gift suggestions, coupons for popular items and loyalty rewards programs.
2 Amazon Restaurants Is set to debut in Seattle
Amazon Go is an exciting new chain of discount convenience stores planned to launch in the U.S. The stores will be operated by the e-commerce giant Amazon. The stores will be partially automated, with shoppers able to order goods without a checkout station or receiving a check for payment. Customers will still have the ability to voice their selections or mark off items as well as make their purchases. The company hopes to attract more of a younger customer base as well as people who may not be comfortable using a credit card to pay for their merchandise.
The first store to take advantage of the technology will be located in Seattle, in the building that has housed Amazon’s headquarters for years. The store will offer items such as books, videos, music, gadgets and clothing. While no definitive timeline has been given for when Amazon Go will open its doors to the public, it’s a sign that the company isn’t waiting around for the right time to introduce this new shopping option.
In an effort to appeal to a younger crowd, the company is also introducing an application store known as Amazon Go. The app store will allow customers to use their Amazon account to make purchases at different establishments including grocery stores, restaurants and other local merchants. There are many details and unanswered questions regarding Amazon Go, including how it will affect the company’s direct marketing partnerships and how it plans to make shopping experiences more convenient. Until the company can fully explain everything, it will be difficult for retailers to offer up any sort of timeline or specific details about when the service will be available in the area.
Amazon Go – checkout-Free Store, Amazon Go, Brinks and More
Amazon Go, which is currently in beta testing, is the latest in e-commerce. This new program from Amazon is designed to give customers a new way to shop. Instead of visiting a traditional brick-and-mortar store, the customer can use their computer at home to order products from their personal computer. Using your personal computer, you can log on to Amazon and choose what products you want to buy. If you find that you don’t want something you bought, you can cancel the order and try again.
Amazon has teamed up with a few leading retailers to offer shoppers in the United States a new shopping experience. Amazon Go is basically a chain of convenience stores in the U.S., operated by Amazon. The interactive stores are fully automated, where customers can order products without a cashier ever checking them out or utilizing a self-checkout machine. You simply insert your debit or credit card, pay with your credit or debit card, and scan the magnetic strip on your product to complete your order. After you’ve completed your order, you can get your items delivered right to your door.
A few of the participating retailers include: Portugu, Brinks and supermarket giant grocer Home Depot. This beta testing program is limited to a number of locations at first, so everyone who tries one out first can take advantage of it. With the implementation of the Amazon Go system, customers will no longer have to stand in line at checkout-free store lines, or deal with traffic on their way out the door. They will also be able to find and purchase items in minutes, something that was an issue for many customers before.
