Let’s know something about the Amazon’s First Book Store:
- The books in the store are face outwards, So the customers can easily recognise the books and the covers of all the books can be visible for shoppers. Each book display the number of stars which are received on amazon.com and reviews can also displayed.
- The price is not listed their. Because it varies if you are a amazon prime member. If you are a prime member you can get the price by scanning the cover of the book. The Prime membership cost $99 per year and the non prime member have to pay the price in the list.
- To get the Prime pricing when you buy any book, the employee at checkout scans a QR code in the Prime app. You can them pay from your Prime member account or pay with a credit card — The Amazon’s First book store doesn’t accept cash.

She said “Our main purpose is to help people discover great books. It’s that simple,” she said, adding that it is “certainly great” if customers want to take advantage of Prime’s discounted pricing.
