Insider reports that Amazon’s Project Santos is working on the point-of-sale (POS) solution. Project Santos is a dedicated (once-secret) taskforce launched by Amazon last year with the aim of brainstorming innovations to compete against Canadian giant, Shopify.
According to an internal Amazon document seen by Insider, the solution designed for third-party retailers will process transactions both online and in store, and offer technological capabilities that allow for data analytics around inventory and other business functions.
It will also offer Amazon checkout options and will connect to Prime services, Flex delivery and the palm identification system.
The document reads: “This will allow our small business (SMB) customers to unify their online and offline channel management including inventory, offer Amazon One for contactless recognition and payment, and offer a customisable loyalty program that can utilise Prime benefits.”
„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
