You can now start scanning your palm to pay at any of the 65 Whole Foods locations across California. Several Whole Foods locations have already been testing the palm-scanning tech in the LA area as well in Austin, Seattle, and New York. It’s also available at the company’s Amazon Style store in Glendale and at select Amazon Go and Fresh stores.
The palm-scanning checkout devices were first introduced in 2020 as part of the Amazon One payment service, allowing customers to pay with a scan of their palm. This is the biggest rollout by the company yet, with the first new Whole Foods locations adding support today in Malibu, Montana Avenue, and Santa Monica.
To set up Amazon One, users can register their palm print using a kiosk or at a point-of-sale station at participating stores. To register, you need to provide a payment card and phone number, agree to Amazon’s terms of service, and share an image of your palms. Once completed, you can take items to checkout and not have to take out your wallet — or even your phone. A hover of your hand over the device is all that’s needed to pay and leave.
