Buy on Amazon: It certainly does not need big presentations: after all, it has invaded the television with its advertisements for quite some time now.
How to Buy on Amazon with Android
We are obviously talking about Amazon: in this guide we quickly retrace what it is, we explain why you should know it pretty well and, above all, we find out how easy it is to buy from a mobile phone.
What is Amazon and why is it convenient?
Amazon has made online selling popular and safe . It is not only a company that sells goods of all kinds, but it is also a digital store with the best customer service in the world. It is so attentive to the consumer that it often leaves you speechless, especially if you relate it to other e-commerce companies.
As a result, the rumor that internet shopping is unsafe no longer makes sense to exist today , not least because, should something happen, Amazon will do everything it can to resolve the situation.
Amazon on Android
Like any self-respecting online service, Amazon also has its Android app and just go to the Play Store to download it. Here’s how to do it:
- Go to the Play Store
- Type “Amazon” into the search bar
- Download Amazon Shopping if you have a smartphone, or Amazon for Tablet
Otherwise, touch the digital buttons below to download Amazon Shopping or Amazon for Tablet from the Play Store. With this application you can do everything that Amazon offers , from order management to purchase, up to the return operations, which are very simple. You will learn in the blink of an eye and see how easy and convenient it is to use the app on Android.
Create an Amazon account on Android
To use Amazon you need to create an Amazon account. It’s simple, free and you only have to do it once. After opening the app, tap New customer? Create an Amazon account . Enter your Name, Mobile Number or e-mail and a password , then choose Continue .
To verify the account, a code will be sent to the e-mail or telephone number left during registration: enter that code in the appropriate field. Once this is done, you will have an Amazon account! Follow the app’s directions to start using it.
Amazon account can also be used on other devices, such as the PC for example. You may have to confirm your identity (perhaps by entering a code that will be delivered to the e-mail entered when registering) with each new connected device.
Obviously, if you change your mobile phone, just select Are you already a customer? Log in to the main screen to log in with your account. What if you forgot your password?
Purchase on Amazon for Android
Buying on Amazon is simple, but buying with the Amazon app with a smartphone is even more so. It actually sounds a bit like a commercial, yet it’s really easy. We explain it to you in seven points.
- In the search bar at the top type what you want to buy
- Take a look at the search results and touch the product you are interested in
- Did you change your mind? Go back or click on the magnifying glass at the top to start a new search. Do you like it and want to buy it? Touch Add to cart .
- If you want to buy more, do another search. If you are ready to proceed with the purchase, touch the cart icon at the top right and then Proceed to order
- Now you need to pay attention. You will be asked for the shipping address : you can choose the home address, that of a relative, or an affiliated center, from which you can conveniently collect the package by showing the proof of purchase. Don’t worry, everything will be well explained to you when choosing. You will then have to enter a valid payment method , such as a credit or debit card or you can take advantage of the top-up if you don’t have one. It is a method that allows you to load your Amazon account into Sisal points via barcode ( more information here ). Know that Amazon does not accept cash on delivery or Paypal.
- Pay attention to the type of shipment . You must reach an amount equal to or greater than € 29 to take advantage of free shipping for items shipped from Amazon, otherwise you will have to pay it. Or you can subscribe to Amazon Prime , and we will talk about this in the next paragraph.
- When you’re ready, tap Buy Now.
What is Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime is a monthly or annual subscription that you can activate to access many benefits. You can watch Movies and TV Series with Prime Video, unlock preview offers during discount days like Black Friday and Prime Day, get unlimited storage space for photos and, above all, have free and fast shipping for many products.
You will wonder if it is worth it : it all depends on how much you buy on Amazon and if you often buy items under the threshold of € 29. You can experience the benefits of the service on your own thanks to the free month offered to all new customers.
Tracking orders, offers and settings
At any time you can call up a pop-up menu by touching the three dashes at the top left, also known as the hamburger button : from here you can take a look at the orders, your wish list, search by category, offers of the day, comfortable gift vouchers (they are always appreciated!) and much more.
We can assure you that you will often use it to check your orders : in this tab you can take a look at the status of the shipment, or if an order is being delivered. Touch what interests you to find out more about it, if you want to cancel it or start a return procedure.
