Amazon to let Whole Foods shoppers pay with a swipe of their palm

Amazon is rolling out biometric tech at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The tech is already in use at its brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores. The Amazon One system lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. Amazon One still requires scanning items at checkout, and the company said it will not impact jobs.

And I'm quite sure that will be the end of the transaction and the data won't be sold.

Yeah pretty soon it'll be facial recognition you rub the walk into the store put things in your bags and just walk right out the store and everything will be paid for facial recognition next

If you have to go through the effort of having to link or associate a credit card with your palm print why not just use your credit card and be done with it?
