Amazon’s palm payment technology is heading to Austin

A previous version of this report misstated that this is the first time that Amazon One will be available outside of Seattle. It has been corrected to reflect this is a first for the Whole Foods Market chain.

Amazon.com Inc. AMZN,
+3.02%
said Tuesday that its palm recognition service, Amazon One, is now available at the Arbor Trails Whole Foods Market location in Austin, and will be available at all seven Austin locations in the coming weeks. Amazon One allows customers to scan the palm of their hand upon entry, which is linked to a payment card. Shoppers stop at checkout to scan their palm one more time, and the transaction is complete. This is the first time that Amazon One will be available at a Whole Foods store outside of Seattle. Amazon stock is down 9.4% over the past year.
