No lines. No checkout. Amazon is finally bringing its cashier-less convenience store, called Amazon Go, to New York City.⠀ ⠀ Amazon Go shoppers simply walk in and out of the store’s turnstiles and scan the Amazon app to purchase items.⠀ ⠀ The NYC location is the first Amazon Go store to accept cash. The company has faced backlash from people who say cashier-free stores discriminate against the unbanked.⠀ ⠀ At this location, shoppers can use paper money or coins by having an employee with a mobile device help them pay.
