Amazon exec says Go stores will begin accepting cash, CNBC reports.

Steve Kessel, Amazon's SVP of physical stores, told employees in an all-hands meeting that the company plans to add "additional payment mechanisms" to its Go stores in order to address "discrimination and elitism" at the cashierless stores, CNBC's Eugene Kim reports, citing the meeting. Kessel highlighted some of the new payment methods Amazon recently added to its site, including a pilot that accepts SNAP benefits and a program called Amazon Cash, which allows users to add cash to their digital accounts and said, ""We're in earlier days but it's an important focus for us and we'll continue to extend those methods with our stores."
