It has been 2 months already since I started learning about E-commerce, specifically being an Amazon Virtual Assistant since I want to pursue a career related to that aside from Administrative tasks. Starting from product research, sourcing, listing optimization, PPC, inventory management, and customer service, Amazon does not really stop to surprise me with their vision. I mean Amazon itself is really broad and complicated so you really need to align your focus while learning the ins and outs of it. Coaches in our Amazon Masterclass really encourage us to at least learn or have a general knowledge first before choosing our main niche whether it could be Product Research or Inventory Management. I have already finished the masterclass but still, I’m learning more through tutorials on Youtube or in our Amazon Masterclass Facebook Group, I mean I have to maximize the resources on the web. What’s really interesting is that our Amazon Masterclass Community is still conducting about 3-4 monthly webinars so that students can learn more and expand their Amazon knowledge more.
While I was browsing in my Facebook Newsfeed, I saw this article about Amazon’s new smart shopping cart that lets you check out without a cashier! Imagine that! I was like, wait. Am I reading it right? Wow. We are really transforming into a modern digital world. So this Dash Cart tracks items as shoppers add them, then automatically charges them when they remove the grocery bags, allowing them to skip the checkout line. Cool right?! Maybe you are still doubting.. So let me elaborate, first, the shoppers must have an Amazon account and a smartphone to use a Dash Cart so that upon entering the store, users can scan a QR code, located in the Amazon app, that signs them into the cart and loads Alexa shopping lists. What’s even interesting is that as shoppers add and remove items, the display on the front of the cart adjusts the total price as well! So when they are ready to leave the store, shoppers would have to exit in the special lane where it will automatically charge the credit card linked to the shopper’s Amazon Account and the shoppers will receive an email for a copy of the receipt.
Isn’t it cool? From developing Alexa-powered products and now they have this Dash Cart. I really see great potential in Amazon.
