All Whole Foods stores will soon have Amazon’s palm payment tech

It will mark the largest launch of the tech since it first debuted in 2020

Amazon’s palm-scanning payment technology will be implemented at all Whole Foods stores by the end of the year, reports CNBC.

The tech, Amazon One, was first launched in Whole Foods back in 2020 and has processed 3 million “uses” since, according to Amazon. The new rollout to all 500-plus Whole Foods stores will be the largest to date. Currently the technology is available at 200 Whole Foods and 200 other retail outlets.

Palm-scanning payment technology involves users waving their palm over a reader. The palm is linked to either an Amazon account or a credit card to process the transaction.

“Since we’ve introduced Amazon One at Whole Foods Market stores over the past two years, we’ve seen that customers love the convenience it provides,” Leandro Balbinot, chief technology officer at Whole Foods Market, said in a statement announcing the expansion.
