By the end of this year, a Woodland Hills store will open in Los Angeles, USA, featuring Amazon's Dash Cart service. This is a concession on the part of the company for those outlets where they want to keep the classic cash registers with the purchase of goods for cash, and not completely switch to cashless payments. At the same time, if a specific customer does not want to stand in line, he has the opportunity to go through the cashier with remote payment.
To activate the Dash Cart service, you need to take a special "smart cart" in the store and log in to the system using a QR code. The cart is equipped with a set of sensors that allow you to identify and weigh the goods, it works to help the buyer. The user must hold the item in front of the scanner and then place it in the basket.
Dash Cart offers several ways to enter product data - through a barcode, entering a name or index. The system automatically determines the price, takes into account promotions and discounts, knows how to work with coupons, and provides all the financial information on the transaction. When shopping is over, you need to go with a cart through a special corridor to confirm the transaction. The money will be debited from the card, a notification will be sent to your e-mail.
