The Cool Innovation That Has Replaced Cashiers At Amazon Go Stores.

Amazon Go is one of the world's largest business enterprises owned by the wealthiest man in the world, Jeffrey Preston Bezos, according to Bloomberg.

Jeff Bezos was born on January 12, 1964 in Albuquerque and raised in Houston and later, Miami. He founded Amazon in 1994 which started off as an online bookstore and has expanded to varieties of other services. It is currently the world's largest online sales company and the largest Internet company in terms of revenues.

He has opened Amazon stores in most parts of the United States. And most of them have something in common, they have no cashiers or no attendants. All you have to do is walk in, pick what you want and walk out, although it doesn't look as easy as it sounds though.

Amazon described the stores as 'just walk out' stores with no checkouts required. You don't have to wait in queues when you shop at an Amazon Go store. All you have to do is have the Amazon Go app in your Android or iOS that linked to your bank account for billing. 

There are actually two types of Amazon Go stores in the US. One that offers breakfast, lunch and other snacks, and the second one, Amazon Go Grocery that offer ready made dinner and household essentials.

These stores work with the same technology found in self-driving cars.

They can detect when a product is taken or returned to the shelf, they can also detect when you take them out of the store and then your bank account is automatically debitted thereby paying for what you picked, and sends you a receipt. 

There are over 25 Amazon Go stores in the US. 

How does Amazon Go work if you wish to be a customer? First of all, you need an Amazon app which you can open through the Amazon Go app on your mobile phone. When you get into the store, you scan the app so that you can have access through a turnstile. You can begin shopping. When you are done, you just walk out through the exit door and the app charges your bank account and sends you a receipt.
