Buy with Prime FAQsUpdated 7 months ago

What is Buy with Prime and how does it work?

Buy with Prime allows millions of US-based Amazon Prime members to shop directly from participating online stores with the trusted experience that you expect from Amazon—including fast, free delivery, a seamless checkout, and easy returns. When you shop directly on our site, you see the Buy with Prime button and Amazon Prime delivery promise on eligible products, which signals that the item is available for free 1–2 day shipping and easy returns. By clicking the Buy with Prime button, you can check out by signing in to your Amazon account, which pre-populates your payment and shipping details on the checkout page. You receive an order confirmation email after placing your order, and then a shipping confirmation email with a link for tracking when the order is shipped. If you aren't an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up and start your free 30-day trial today.
