Amazon Expands Cash Payment Possibilities

Online retailer Amazon has launched Amazon PayCode, a new way to let shoppers pay with cash at any of 15,000 Western Union locations, CNBC reports.

The service was previously available in 19 countries, but is making its debut in the U.S. in the next few weeks, according to the report.

“Customers have told us they love the convenience of paying in cash,” Ben Volk, Director, Payments at Amazon, said in a statement Wednesday. “Together with Western Union, we’re able to offer customers more shopping choices, enabling them to pay for their online purchases in a way that is convenient for them.”

CNBC reports Amazon PayCode could help customers without bank accounts make online purchases. In the September 2019 installment of High Performance Retailing, an NRF analyst provided insight into cashless payments.
