Amazon Pay Places is a recently announced feature of the Amazon brand that will allow consumers to purchase items that are sold in-store through their accounts with the eCommerce site.

For now, the brand has partnered with TGI Fridays, and those who use the Amazon Pay Places service will be able to pay for their menu items through their Amazon accounts. While for now the service is only available at the restaurant chain in a few states, it could have multiple potential uses in a wide variety of retail locations.

Amazon continues to dominate both online and physical retail spaces, and by combining the worlds of eCommerce and brick and mortar, the company is also forging a new path forward in the retail world.
