Just Walk Out is a cashier-less payment system developed and provided by Amazon. At the beginning of the announcement, this system said, 'All the products you pick up are detected by sensors, etc., and when a shopper reads a credit card into the store and enters the store, the payment is completed just by leaving the store without going through the cash register.' As the name suggests, it was a 'just walk out' system.

However, Just Walk Out, which will be introduced to Whole Foods Market, has evolved even further.

Whole Foods Market had already introduced Amazon One before the introduction of Just Walk Out.

Regarding whether or not to introduce Just Walk Out to all stores in the United States, 'I would like to consider how customers will accept Just Walk Out at pre-installed stores.'
