A new biometric technology by Amazon called Amazon One will now allow shoppers to pay with their palms when they check out.
The goal here is to ultimately get rid of long queues at retail outlets, and saving shoppers lots of time when checking out.
First-time shoppers will register by scanning their palm over a scanning device and insert their payment details.
The new technology will first be available at two of Amazon Go’s cashier-less store in Seattle, and gradually rolled out to the rest of its 20-plus stores.
On top of that, the technology for palm payments is also being licensed to other retailers, including their competitors.
