After launching Buy with Prime in April 2022 we recently announced some exciting updates to help merchants offer Prime shopping benefits to millions of U.S.-based Prime members on their website. Below is a summary of the latest ways we’re helping merchants of all sizes grow their business, whether on Amazon or beyond.
Buy with Prime has been shown to increase shopper conversion by 25% on average. This data point measures the average increase in shoppers who placed an order when Buy with Prime was an available purchase option versus when it was not, during the same time period. It’s important to note that this is an average.
We’ve seen some merchants, like Trophy Skin, report shopper conversion of more than 30% since adding Buy with Prime to their online store. Additionally, merchants such as Wyze have told us they are seeing a 25% higher conversion rate and have added Buy with Prime to all eligible products in their catalog. Hydralyte told us that after adding Buy with Prime, they have seen a 14% increase in conversion. Find more merchant testimonials.
Up to now, Buy with Prime has been available to merchants on an invite-only basis. During this time, we’ve been relentlessly iterating to make sure we’re building the best possible product and experience for merchants and Prime members. Buy with Prime is now available to all eligible U.S.-based merchants. If you're ready to get started you can sign up here.
We’re also launching a new capability for Buy with Prime merchants: the ability to display customer reviews from Amazon.com within their own online stores. This offers merchants a new way to increase shopper trust and better inform shopper purchase decisions. Learn more.
Buy with Prime is designed to work with most online stores built with services offered by ecommerce service providers, including BigCommerce. On January 10, BigCommerce announced the Buy with Prime app for BigCommerce. This new self-service integration will help BigCommerce merchants easily enable Buy with Prime on their storefronts—no coding required. Learn more.
We’ve been working closely with merchants since launching Buy with Prime, and we’re thrilled to hear that the program has helped drive such impressive results so far. We’ll continue innovating and investing in new features and tools to help merchants of all sizes succeed—and give Prime members the shopping benefits they love, whether it’s on Amazon or beyond.
