Brand New Buy with Prime Features
The Buy with Prime integration for Salesforce offers merchants new features. For the first time, merchants can enable search and filter capabilities on their websites to help shoppers easily and efficiently discover Prime eligible items. In addition, Buy with Prime for Salesforce gives merchants the opportunity to offer a mixed cart to customers. Shoppers will be able to add both Prime eligible and other items to their carts and purchase all items in a single checkout. Amazon and Salesforce will continue to iterate together on Buy with Prime for Salesforce and plan to roll out additional features in the future.
Connect With New Shoppers and Drive Greater Loyalty
Amazon is committed to helping merchants of all sizes grow. Buy with Prime helps merchants connect with new shoppers and grow brand loyalty by providing customers with live chat support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on Buy with Prime purchases. Merchants also continue to own the customer data that comes through Buy with Prime purchases on their websites. By offering the shopping experience Prime members know and love—fast, free delivery, a trusted checkout experience, and hassle-free returns— Buy with Prime has been shown to increase shopper conversion by 25%, on average, and three out of every four Buy with Prime orders come from new shoppers, on average.
Scaling Fulfillment and Delivery Using Amazon’s Logistics Network
Whether a shopper places an order directly on a merchant’s own direct-to-consumer website via Buy with Prime or shops directly on Amazon.com, the orders are fulfilled using the same pool of inventory stored within Amazon’s logistics network. This shared inventory pool gives Buy with Prime merchants the flexibility to scale their inventory across multiple sales channels, which in turn reduces out-of-stock rates, and thus speeds up delivery times. For instance, with Amazon Multi-Channel Fulfillment, Buy with Prime merchants can delight their customers with a >97% on-time delivery rate, deliveries made seven days a week, and an average “click-to-door speed” of 1.9 days—over 50% faster than other retailers.
