The company said that this option has been introduced in 19 countries, but will be introduced in the United States in the coming weeks.
The company also launched Amazon Cash, which allows users to load cash into their Amazon balance in person so they can shop online later. Now, there are more than 100,000 cash-loading outlets in the United States.
"customers tell us that they like the convenience of paying in cash." "through working with Western Union remittances, we can provide customers with more shopping options so that they can pay for their online shopping in a convenient manner," Ben Volcker, Amazon's payment director, said in a statement on Wednesday.
While most Amazon shoppers may insist that online payment is more convenient, cash options can help people who do not have bank accounts or access to traditional banking systems.
The company recently launched other options for this group of people. In June, Amazon partnered with Synchrony Financial to provide a credit card to people who might not have enough credibility. "Amazon Credit Builder" allows users to establish credit through security cards and budget tools and prompts. Once you have established enough credit, you can eventually "graduate" and use another Amazon store card.
Despite the increase in mobile payments, cash is still the main means of payment in the United States. Last year, 79% of American consumers used cash to shop, according to Bain.
When checking out, customers can select the "Amazon PayCode" option to get two-dimensional codes and a string of numbers, and then show them to Westside remittance outlets. They need to pay at the network within 24 hours after the order is issued. If a return occurs, the cash will be returned to the customer.
