Amazon seems to roll out its new payment product
Following the series of job posts sketched out by Amazon, it is observed that the e-commerce giant is planning to roll out new payment products. According to the post, the customers will use the latest product to convert cash into garden-type cryptocurrency. Using digital currency, consumers can enjoy online services offered by the e-commerce giant. Such online services will also include shopping for goods and services like Amazon Prime Video. However, the e-commerce giant is hiring all levels of software development engineers to staff up for the launch of the new product.
The payment product focused on emerging economies
Following one job post by Amazon’s Digital and Emerging Payments (DEP) division, it is found that the firm is planning to launch its payment product in Mexico. The post stated that the firm realizes its three-year vision with a brand new initiative for emerging countries. Following the aforementioned statement, it seems like the payment product will appear to be widely focused on emerging markets. The Mexican market would be great for the e-commerce giant. Additionally, the firm’s next target would be offering Brazilian customers an end-to-end payment experience.
Cryptocurrency payments might be hype in the coming years
Every eye in the cryptosphere is witnessing how the digital payments industry is emerging. Over several years, Amazon has invested in operations globally. It is observed that in developing nations like India, the e-commerce giant is facing intense competition from locally grown but now foreign-owned platforms like Flipkart. Following the scenario, Amazon planned to start several payment services. Recently Tesla also revealed its intention of accepting Bitcoins in exchange for its products. Following the current scenario, we can conclude that digital currency payments are getting mainstream, especially among large firms.
