Amazon Cash leaves you no excuse not to shop online

Amazon Cash leaves you no excuse not to shop online

As convenient and easy as online shopping maybe, almost all online retailers have one hard requirement: a credit or debit card, or, at the very least, a bank account. That leaves out a lot of people who may have the cash but don't have the card to do so. For Amazon, that means dozens if not hundreds of potential customers that it can't reach. That is why it's launching Amazon Cash to provide a dead easy way for Amazon users to "top up" their account, no card or bank account needed.

NES Classic Edition in stock? Not so fast… [WARNING]

Amazon Go puts the future on temporary hold

Amazon Go puts the future on temporary hold

While generally I’d write and article about how "Amazon Go" is delayed with an understanding with our readers that they’d read previous articles, today we’re in a unique position. Today with news that there’s are "technical complications" in the store, according to WSJ, I’m going to discuss the implications of this delay.

Amazon starts collecting state sales tax across US next month

Starting April 1st, Amazon will collect a sales tax in all 45 states that have one, with Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, and New Mexico being the last four to be included.

Amazon Prime Exclusive Phones adds Alcatel A30 and Moto G5 Plus

Last summer, Amazon launched what it calls ‘Prime Exclusive Phones,’ which are subsidized Android handsets offered to Prime members at a discount…and with advertisements on the lock screen.

We’ve seen some budget-tier handsets join the lineup over the past several months, and newest among them is both the Moto G5 Plus and the Alcatel A30.

With a range of skills at its disposal, Amazon's Alexa platform is capable of a lot of things. Strangely, one thing Alexa hasn't been able to do is place orders through Amazon Prime Now.

Amazon ‘Outfit Compare’ tool tells you which of two outfits looks better

Amazon has introduced a new feature for Prime members that allows shoppers to share images of themselves wearing different outfits.
