What does it mean

The beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown around the world led to the growth of the online commerce market: according to UN experts, in 2020 the global e-commerce sector grew to $26.7 trillion. One of the things that helped bring e-commerce to the attention of shoppers during COVID-19 was the ability to make contactless purchases. However, Amazon is proving that it is possible in a physical store as well – all you need to do is equip it with cutting-edge technology.

It is worth noting that the IT giant already has similar projects implemented quite successfully: Amazon previously introduced contactless Amazon Go and Amazon Fresh grocery stores equipped with Just Walk Out technology . In addition, in September 2020, the company launched Amazon One, a technology that allows you to pay for purchases with a palm print. In this way, Amazon is reimagining traditional retail by introducing "stores of the future".
