After Amazon Prime where Amazon started delivering products at the doorstep of the customers using drones, Amazon is going way ahead in using technology to meet the customer requirements, and that too in the most convenient ways. Finally, the Amazon Dash is available for the customers in US. Everyone around the world thought it was an April fool’s joke when Amazon came up with the concept of push to order buttons earlier this year. But now they have lived up to their promise and believe me, it is quite convenient and is going to be a real hit in the US.
Think about a usual situation where you run out of something like a laundry detergent. All you need is to have a tide, bounty or cottonelle dash button with you. Just press the button and Amazon prime will order a new detergent or fabric softener from that brand. It’s as simple as that. You don’t have to open your PC, get into the Amazon site and order your product anymore. How more simple can it be than getting something ordered and delivered to you by just the press of a button?!?
As of now there are 18 brands for which Dash buttons are available for sale in Amazon.com. These include Tide etal, Gatorade, Smart water, Glad bags, Clorox, Wellness pet food, Amazon Elements, Maxwell House, Izze, Gerber formula, L’Oreal youth code, Olay, and Gillette. Each of these buttons costs $4.99 for Amazon prime users, and this of course does not include the price of the product that they are eventually going to order by pressing it.
Amazon has also informed that dash buttons for some of the products, including Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, is also available in a ‘limited release’. Though for many people, these dash buttons might feel like a gimmick, they do work quite efficiently. Amazon Prime has already brought down your work from going to the shop to get the stuff you want. Now Amazon Dash will further bring down your work by not even requiring visiting the Amazon website to order your product. If you want to reorder a product, the Dash button will bypass that legwork as long as it is linked directly with your Amazon Prime account via your home Wi-Fi network.
When you press the button, Amazon sends an alert message to your phone. This will let you cancel the order if you have accidently hit the button, or if you don’t want 10 boxes of mac and cheese, just because it is so fun to press the button. The conformation message will ensure that you don’t accidently order any product just by pressing the button. Overall by Amazon dash, the company tries to make your shopping with Amazon as easy as possible.
Everything seems good about this new technology from Amazon, but do remember that you will be stuck with some tacky looking buttons attached to all of the things at your home.
