Amazon Dash buttons now come in digital versions
Amazon came up with an interesting way to order products with its WiFi-enabled Dash buttons not too long ago. The idea was to make it quick and convenient to order grocery products like garbage bags, cat food or detergent that people needed to buy on a regular basis. But what if you need to get some toothpaste, but that Dash button is nowhere near you? That’s where the newly revealed digital Amazon Dash buttons come in.
These buttons are available for members of the Amazon Prime program. If you need to get some products, but either don’t have any Dash buttons at home or they are not available at that moment, Prime members can now go to the Amazon website and click on a digital Dash button to have those items sent to them automatically.
The virtual versions can also be sorted on the webpage, from most-used buttons to the ones you access the least. You can also label them if you want to make it easier to find your favorites, or delete any that you don’t want to use any more. If you do press a virtual Dash button and then quickly realize you made a mistake, Amazon allows you to cancel that order if the request is made within 30 minutes. If you purchase a physical Dash button, the Amazon site will automatically added its digital counterpart. Amazon has over 200 of them now, which costs $4.99 up front, but they also come with a $4.99 credit, making them basically free.
