US giant more seriously talking about a completely new type of payment, thanks to which we will not have to carry anything beyond his own hand – whether it really has a chance to check out?
Amazon creates a very special stationary terminals for shops, where customers will be able to connect to your credit card information with their hands, later to pay without having to carry a wallet, documents or smartphone. The company wants that such payment systems appeared in cafes, pubs and other establishments where daily runs through the crowds of people, very often accustomed to their favorite places. And although at first glance, all this to facilitate our lives, it must be remembered that the tech giants do not really do anything for free.
And what is it this time? About the same as usual, or even greater access to our data, what Amazon might just earn well. Just moreover look at his previous experiments Financial, the auto shops that do not have to stop at the checkout to pay or digital wallet Amazon Pay payment at online retailers outside the Amazon – the same Jeff Bezos convinces the members of his management that is extremely important issue.
Anyway, plans for new terminals are still at an early stage and as informs The Wall Street Journal, citing its sources, Amazon has lead to this conversation with both Visa and Mastercard. What’s more, the company also had a talk with those offering credit cards as JPMorgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co. and Synchrony Financial, who had expressed interest in making available such services to their customers.

Fears of possible exclusion from popular services, however, are stronger, so Amazon certainly will not have trouble finding takers. Anyway, there is still much to be done, and the biggest problem seems to protect clients against scammers who may wish to use the new system. Not without significance is the method of assigning cards to your hand (or will be in the store, or perhaps the headquarters of the bank, and perhaps Amazon has another idea?) And how to convince customers to bring to the company more their privacy, because as you know the giant He will keep at home about our purchases, which gives him a large field of possibilities. In short, we will watch with interest the case.
