The UK has made it easier to buy hi-tech goods online, with Amazon offering a new “buy it now” option for UK shoppers, as well as a slew of new options on Amazon Prime.
Amazon’s “buy now” policy is meant to make it easier, not harder, for UK consumers to buy goods online.
The new option on Amazon offers UK shoppers an “buy” option to make purchases, rather than an “order” option, and the company has launched a number of new product categories that it said it would be launching on Prime.
“We have been working hard to give our UK customers the most comprehensive range of goods on offer, as we aim to be a great place to shop and spend,” a spokesperson said.
But what exactly does the new “Buy it now”, “order it now,” and “buy direct” options mean?
What are they and how do they work?
The “buy with cash” option on Prime gives consumers a free one-off payment of £9.99, and will let them browse a range of new products that are only available through Amazon Prime through the “buy in bulk” option.
It’s not an option for all shoppers, however, and it’s not available to those in the UK.
Amazon said that it would offer customers a range, from a “new high-end camera” to a “sneak peek at a new smart TV”, but it would not be available to customers outside the UK on Prime Instant Video.
If you’re on a budget, Amazon said, you can also get a “buy one get one free” offer.
This will give you a free, one-time $25 payment for the purchase of a new TV or new smartphone, but will not include the purchase in bulk.
Amazon Prime “buy all” and “order all” products on Amazon have also been expanded.
“Buy all” items will now be available for £7.99 (or £6.99 if you want a larger amount of them), and the “Order all” option will cost £7 (or even £5).
Amazon Prime is not available in other parts of the world, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, and New Zealand.
Amazon has also launched its own online store, which will sell a range on Prime items.
The new items include “digital games, toys, and other products” for £10.99 a piece.
The “Buy everything” option in Amazon Prime will also be available.
“There are lots of great products and accessories available on Amazon that you can get online, including a wide range of clothing, electronics, and even a home alarm,” Amazon said.
