Amazon debuted its Amazon One system last year for the first time. It was seen in some of the company’s supermarkets, where it allowed customers to pay by scanning their palms at payment machines. Since then, the system has developed and it is now being used in a variety of commercial settings, including stadiums and public places.
Paying with Amazon One for the stadium ticket without contact and in seconds
Certainly, in places like this, an Amazon One makes even more sense than in a supermarket. States and similar venues often have to accommodate huge numbers of people and quickly reduce queues. Identifying oneself via palm reading in a matter of seconds and automatically reimbursing is unquestionably far more convenient than if a person does it the standard way.
This all takes into account the fact that Amazon’s system stores the user’s biometric data. The service is guaranteed safe and secure, according to Amazon. When you have linked your palm to an Amazon account and identified it with one, the procedure is quick and efficient as long as the Amazon One software is employed. Always connected to the Amazon account.
The company has not yet determined whether or not its service is a success. It’s being slowly introduced in supermarkets and now in stadiums. They indicate that they have already signed up “tens of thousands of people in 60 locations” in the country where Amazon One is used. For stadiums this time it has partnered with AXS, a US ticketing service, so we will probably see it in many other locations soon.
Amazon One also has a few more benefits, including the lack of need for contact. The service examines the palm of the hand several centimeters away from the scanner and no one is required to be present since everything is automated. In a pandemic world, this is a great advantage of Amazon One over traditional ATMs with employees and cash exchange.
