One big advantage of Kindle Store, iBookstore and other e-book store is users can easily download and buy books anywhere.
Same as drinks / snacks / tickets / crabs automatic vending machines, consumers can make payments by cash. After payment, vending machines will print out a receipt with a QR code. Consumers through taking photo of QR code to obtain the e-books’ download link.
Compared to the online book store, Glory’s book selling machines could display all the sold books through a large-screen, providing a “look” books place for passers. In addition, the payment method of Glory is traditional, it does not require users to register account which reduces the cost of the primary user to get started. It is an interesting attempt – but I am afraid it is only an interesting attempt nothing more.
