Amazon had launched its first cashierless store in December 2016. The service currently operates at around 26 locations across the US, including Amazon's first traditional grocery store that it opened last month.

Once you have finished your shopping, you can walk out of the store without requiring to scan anything or interact with a cashier. Your account will be automatically billed, and a receipt will be emailed to you.
 
 
 
Amazon’s vice president of physical retail and technology, Dilip Kumar, said shoppers’ preferences will determine how big the business becomes.
 
"Do customers like standing in lines...This has pretty broad applicability across store sizes, across industries, because it fundamentally tackles a problem of how do you get convenience in physical locations, especially when people are hard-pressed for time.", he added.
 
But unlike Amazon Go stores, customers will have to insert a credit card into a gated turnstile to enter, rather than scan an app.
