Already enabled at Shoppers Stop, Amazon Pay would be expanding Scan and Pay feature to more retail outlets and has raised more than $300 million from its parent company. The online giant, with its scan and pay feature is getting the digital touch to offline feature, now that it’s getting into the offline market and also the space of digital payments.
In department store chain, such as Shoppers Stop, Amazon has already enabled the scan and pay feature and would be setting up the infrastructure at More, the grocery chain.
There are speculations that Amazon would be now reaching out to merchants, as it has a stake in More as well as Shoppers Stop. However, this move would take more time as the sector is unorganised.
Confirming this development, a spokesperson said that the company had started introducing the Amazon smile code, which was a new way for their customers to shop and pay at offline stores. He added that soon, Amazon smile codes would be found in neighbourhood retail outlets where customers can scan and pay for their shopping without a hitch.
