Amazon has secured a retail space in the heart of London to launch its cashless store Amazon Go for the first time outside the United States, according to Techcrunch. Currently, Amazon operates 10 of these stores in the US: four in Chicago, four in Seattle and two in San Francisco.
Amazon Go stores have no cashier, as shoppers can simply open the Amazon app and scan a QR code with their smartphones. The sum is directly deducted from the credit card the user has linked to their Amazon account. Cameras and sensors make sure that no items get stolen.
Contacted by FashionUnited, Amazon said it does not comment on rumors.
