Amazon launched its first convenience grocery store outside North Amercia in March. Since then it has opened four other stores in Britain.
Amazon has this week opened a new physical store in Chalk Farm, north London.
This is the company’s fifth convenience grocery store in the UK.
The store enables customers to “just walk out” of the store after they have finished their shop, instead of queuing up.
Shoppers can scan a smartphone app when entering the shop and are automatically billed when they leave.
The store is decked out with hundreds of cameras and depth-sensors to register what people choose to place in their bag for purchasing.
The technology can even register when someone has put an item back on the shelf, such as if they change their mind.
A customer’s on-file credit card is billed after they leave the shop and a receipt is emailed, meaning they can walk out of the store without waiting to pay.
This technology is used in every Amazon Fresh shop in the UK.

The first Amazon convenience store outside of the US opened in Ealing, north-west London.
As well as Chalk Farm, the other Amazon Fresh locations are near Wembley Stadium, in White City, and in Canary Wharf.
The stores stock everyday ingredients and essentials, as well as ready-made meals.
There is even a wide range of Amazon own brand hot food items, which are freshly prepared in store.
Additionally, Amazon Fresh stores sell household goods, newspapers and magazines, flowers, greeting cards, and more.
To celebrate Amazon’s Prime Day next week, June 21, all five London Amazon Fresh stores are offering customers a free hot drink.
The deal started yesterday and will continue every day until June 22.
Amazon has opened five stores in the capital within a short period of time.
One store has opened every 19 days, which means that if continued, the company could have 16 sites in the UK by the end of the year.
Amazon has said it is looking to expand the shops to other parts of London soon.
The company said: “We are excited to see how customers like the Amazon Fresh stores and look forward to opening more in the greater London area in the future.”
At the time of the first Amazon store opening in March, Matt Birch, the former Sainsbury’s executive who now leads Amazon Fresh Stores UK, said the company has strived to make grocery shopping “as convenient as possible”.
He said: “The focus was just creating a really easy shopping experience for customers.
“We recognise that UK customers want to shop in a convenient way so we really think they will appreciate being able to walk in and walk out with the shopping they need.”
