The system will allegedly include supplying retailers with Kindle tablets and credit card readers.
Amazon will allegedly focus on small and mid-size retailers at first due to the complications of larger checkout systems already used at big-box stores.
As part of Amazon’s pitch, the online retailer might thrown in other services, too, such as website development and data analysis, sources said. When you have Amazon, a company that has an enormous reputation and immense brand recognition, approaching you about new ventures, it could be difficult for small business to say no. And because Amazon has credit-card information for about 230 million users, the company could create a mobile wallet solution to help speed up the payment process. Think of it as a one-click method, but in physical retail locations.
Amazon is reportedly going to enter the brick-and-mortar business by providing mobile checkout solution and competing with Square and PayPal.
