Amazon's Dash Button Usage has Increased 5 Times in the Last Year


Reordering with Amazon's Dash button has increased five times during the last year. For the uninitiated, what exactly is Amazon Dash. In an official description, Amazon Dash allows customers to instantly order their favorite items: "Amazon Dash Button is a Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favorite product with the press of a button."

In fact most of Amazon's customer orders are made through Dash. These products include "popular items from brands such as Hefty, Peet's Coffee, and ARM & HAMMER." Currently there are two hundred products currently available via the Dash Button.

The cost of Amazon's Dash is neglible especially since the initial signup cost of 4.99 ends up being credited later to the customer's Amazon account if the purchase is made through the Dash Button. Dash customers will experience the same low prices as Amazon online and have free Prime shipping.

Running out out of staples, whether beverages, pantry essentials, pet treats and personal care items are now a thing of the past with Dash. Indeed such mishaps as trying to "reach for a new trash bag and find out the box is empty" are ancient history.

As with traditional Amazon Prime purchases, customers receive order confirmations and can cancel a Dash order anytime. Prime members can obtain Dash Buttons at Amazon Dash Button . A selection of new Dash buttons, and the associated featured products, can be also browsed at the previous link.
