(Pocket-lint) – Seattle-based Starbucks is using Amazon Go’s “just walk out” cashierless technology at a new “pickup cafe” it has opened in New York City.
The store, located on 59th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues in midtown Manhattan, allows customers to purchase coffee or a snack without having to interact with a barista or cashier. This is one of three pickup points the Coffee Maker plans to open this year. If you visit them, you’ll find the Starbucks menu, featuring sandwiches and salads, as well as a “select assortment” of food and drink in the Amazon Go Marketplace section.
To get your coffee from the “Starbucks Pickup with Amazon Go” in New York City, simply pre-order your drink using the Starbucks mobile app, then choose the store at “59th between Park & Lex w / Amazon Go” and go to the store. By the time you get there, it should be sitting on the counter for you.
Current drink orders will be displayed on a screen above the counter. An in-store scanner allows you to enter payment information.
To enter the Amazon Go Marketplace area and the store lounge area, use the in-store code displayed in your Amazon app, then insert your credit card. Or, if you’ve already signed up for the Amazon One program that launched in Amazon Go stores in Seattle last year, just scan the palm of your hand.
When you remove items from the shelves, they are added to your virtual shopping cart. When you are done shopping, you can either leave the store or sit in the lounge area. Your card will be charged once you leave the store. There are Starbucks employees in the store to help you out for whatever reason if needed.
The new store will be open daily at 6 a.m. ET and will remain open until 10 p.m. ET on weekdays and 9 p.m. ET on weekends.
