Find out how to use the all cash payment system, here. This makes sense as e-commerce in the US has slowed down and Amazon is facing tough competition from Alibaba BABA and eBay EBAY.

Our phone seem to do anything these days, and Amazon joins the list of companies vying for your digital signature. After your transaction is done, you would get a receipt from the cashier and your Amazon account balance would be credited instantly!

There are multiple retailers around the USA that allow you to make payments through Cash, including some major pharmacies and grocery stores.

By now, you're probably familiar with the ritual of carefully pecking out your credit card number when you're buying something online - but that's a potentially risky process that could theoretically lead to identity theft.

Amazon Cash is similar to PayPal's My Cash Card, which allows users to add cash to their PayPal accounts at retailers including CVS, Family Dollar and 7-Eleven.

On Russia, Trump administration hews closely to Obama playbook

Amazon customers are no longer restricted to paying with their credit or debit cards. Yes, you will only need one Amazon Cash barcode linked to your account. Then, pay in cash get your Amazon balance topped-up.

Amazon Cash is available now. And the reason the online retailer has now launched Amazon Cash. If you own an iPhone, you can then select "Add to Apple Wallet" to store that barcode in your digital wallet.

What do you think about Amazon's newest addition?

To use the service, customers show their barcode to the cashier, and tell them how much cash they want to apply to their account. With Amazon Cash, you can add money directly into your account, no bank accounts or cards necessary.

The funds are now available for use on your Amazon.com account! A 2015 survey from the Federal Deposit Insurance Association (the independent agency created by Congress to insure bank deposits, supervise financial institutions and otherwise maintain stability and public confidence in the nation's financial system) found that 7% of US households, some 9 million, were unbanked - meaning they had no checking or savings account. Do you like the idea of Amazon Cash? Is it something you will use?
