Amazon makes it way easier to pay with cash
You no longer need a credit or debit card to shop on Amazon.
The online shopping giant just launched a new way for customers to pay cash for items on the site.
Amazon Cash lets shoppers add money to their account balance by simply scanning a barcode — either on a smartphone screen or printed on paper — at a participating brick-and-mortar store.

The list of available retail chains includes CVS Pharmacy, Speedway, Sheetz, Kum & Go, and D&W Fresh Market.
The service is aimed at the substantial segment of the population that might not have access to a bank account or credit card. Around 7 percent of consumers are “unbanked,” according to a 2015 report from the FDIC.
