Amazon is discontinuing its “Just Walk Out” self-service technology at its Amazon Fresh stores in the United States, and replacing it with the “Amazon Dash Cart.” This new technology provides customers with a similar experience without requiring payment.

The previous version of the technology used sensors and cameras to track customers’ selections, allowing them to grab items and leave without waiting in line. However, the new Amazon Dash Cart requires customers to scan their items before placing them in their carts and automatically pays for their purchases without waiting in line.

According to Amazon spokeswoman Jessica Martin, the company is redesigning its Amazon Fresh stores to improve the overall shopping experience and offer more convenience. Customers expressed a desire for features such as finding products nearby, viewing their account balances, and knowing how much they saved while shopping. As a result, the introduction of the Amazon Dash Cart was made possible.

While Just Walk Out technology will no longer be available at Amazon Fresh stores in the US, it will continue to be offered at Amazon Go stores and smaller Amazon Fresh stores in the UK. The first Amazon store without cashiers outside of the US has opened in London 2021.
