Starbucks and Amazon partner to open cashierless coffee shop in Manhattan.
Starbucks is opening a pick-up cafe in midtown Manhattan with Amazon Go that uses Amazon's Just Walk Out tech, with two more planned over the next year. Starbucks customers order on mobile and pick up as they usually would, but they can also buy salads, sandwiches, items from local favorites like Dominique Ansel, and many other items like protein bars and packs of gum, from the Amazon Go market section of the store. Customers have to scan the Amazon app, insert their credit card, or use Amazon One, the palm scanning technology, to enter the Amazon Go section. Then scales, cameras and shelf sensors tally up customers' totals and charge them automatically when they leave the store. Link
