At Amazon Go, checking out feels like shoplifting

Amazon opened their “Amazon Go” convenience store in Seattle. There are no cash registers – instead, Amazon automatically charges you for what you have in your shopping cart.

At Amazon Go, checking out feels like — there’s no other way to put it — shoplifting. It is only a few minutes after walking out of the store, when Amazon sends an electronic receipt for purchases, that the feeling goes away.

The technology inside Amazon’s new convenience store, opening Monday in downtown Seattle, enables a shopping experience like no other — including no checkout lines.
