The Gist

The Amazon One scanner will make it possible to pay at stores with just a scan of your palm. 

The List

  • Amazon One devices are currently available at select Amazon Go stores in Seattle, Washington. 
  • Rumors about the device have been circulating since last year. 
  • The device is designed not only for retail application, but security applications as well (e.g. access to a building). 
  • All that is required to use the retail Amazon One device is a credit card and phone number. 
  • Amazon has noted that users can delete their biometric data at any time if they no longer want to use Amazon One devices.
