Contactless Business? Yes, they were already a reality, but now they are internationalizing. Amazon, a company founded by Jeff Bezos, opened its first store where users don't have to pay when they leave and only need to take products off the shelves.

The company's first automated store outside the United States opened in Earling, West London.

Upon entering the facility, customers scan a QR code from the Amazon Go application on their phones. Later, thanks to sensors and cameras, the costs for the items removed from the shelves are automatically charged to the people's account.

When users leave the store, the purchase is automatically paid for through the application and the receipt is sent to the customer's email address.

New trend?

This could become one of the new trends in the world as it avoids contact with people and even cash when leaving stores. Without a doubt, the pandemic has changed a lot of things, and while these stores have existed in the US since 2018, they could expand very soon.

The healthy distance and the slightest contact persist at least for a long time. Buying through an application that checks the products you have taken can become a promising option. What do you think?
