(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc <AMZN.O> is testing its cashierless checkout technology for bigger stores with larger spaces and experimenting the technology in Seattle, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.
The technology functions well in a small store format but is harder to use in bigger spaces with higher ceilings and more production, the report https://on.wsj.com/2U6hwnB added, citing a source.
The checkout-free system which is already operational in certain Amazon Go stores, allows shoppers to buy things with the help of a smartphone app by tracking what they pick up from the shelves and what they put back, billing their credit cards after they leave.
Amazon did not immediately reply to a request seeking comment.
