Amazon is one of the biggest online shopping systems in the world. For a while, they have been looking into the physical shopping markets. The bookstores that they opened few months ago were among their first steps in this area. However, Amazon has announced that it will not only focus on the bookstores, but will enter the supermarket area as well, which has a total size of $ 900 billion in the US.
With its newly developed Amazon Go store concept, the company completely removes the waiting queue for its customers. That is because they don’t even have cash points. Basically, the customers get everything they want, they put it in their bags and they leave the market.
The foundation of the new store is based on the artificial intelligence. The stores are equipped with environmental recognition technology used in driverless cars as well. The sensors recognize which customer gets which product from the rafts, and the system automatically adds it in the customer’s digital account. If the customer gives up the product and puts it back, the store takes the product out of the customer’s list.
The customer, who has completed the shopping, easily comes out from the shop without any physical payment process, entering the queue, or waiting in front of the cash point . The fee for the receipt is automatically withdrawn from the credit card registered to the digital Amazon account.
Amazon’s boss, Jeff Bezos, underlines that they will open total of 2000 Amazon Go stores across the US. As a result, the supermarket formations we know will be completely changed in a few years.
