What is Amazon’s Buy with Prime
June 08, 2023

Are you an online seller looking to increase your sales and offer a more convenient shopping experience to your customers? Amazon’s Buy with Prime is the solution you need. In this article, we’ll explore what Buy with Prime is, how it works, and the benefits of using it for your e-commerce business.

Buy with Prime is a program offered by Amazon that allows online sellers to offer fast and free shipping to their customers. With Buy with Prime, sellers can tap into Amazon’s vast fulfillment network to offer customers the same fast and reliable delivery experience that Prime members enjoy.

How it works

To use Buy with Prime, sellers need to have inventory stored in an Amazon fulfillment center. Once the inventory is set up, sellers can add a Buy with Prime button to their website to inform customers that the product is eligible for fast and free shipping. When a customer clicks on the Buy with Prime button, Amazon handles the entire fulfillment process, from picking and packing to shipping and handling customer service inquiries.

“Seeing a 40% jump in conversion was astonishing to us. After adding Buy with Prime, we saw an immediate conversion lift, which is what any marketer, any brand, and any company wants. It helps us carry out our mission to reduce single-use plastic water bottle pollution.
