Starting today, Amazon customers can add items to their Amazon Wish
List without leaving Twitter
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 24, 2014--
(NASDAQ:AMZN)–Arriving just in time for the holiday shopping season,
Amazon introduces #AmazonWishList, allowing customers to add items to
their Amazon Wish List without leaving Twitter. Customers who discover a
Tweet from their favorite artist, expert, brand, or friend with an
Amazon.com product link, can simply add “#AmazonWishList” to the reply
on Twitter and the product is added to their Amazon Wish List. Customers
can learn more by visiting www.amazon.com/AmazonWishList.
“Twitter offers Amazon customers a great environment for inspiration and
discovery,” said John Yurcisin, Director of Social at Amazon.
“#AmazonWishList makes it easy for people to quickly add holiday gifts,
décor or entertaining items tweeted by interesting people, friends, or
brands on Twitter to their Amazon Wish List, allowing customers to
simply save items to their Wish List and keep on Tweeting.”
Building on the recent launch of #AmazonCart,
customers who have already connected their Twitter and Amazon.com
accounts will be notified with a reply Tweet from @MyAmazon as well as
an email from Amazon when the item is successfully added to their Wish
List. Customers who have not connected their Twitter and Amazon.com
accounts will receive a reply Tweet asking them to connect their
accounts to enable the new feature. To edit connection preferences,
Amazon customers can visit www.amazon.com/social.
Last year, one in three Amazon customers worldwide wished, accounting
for 50 items added to Amazon Wish Lists every second. Amazon Wish List
continues to be one of the most popular places on Amazon for both online
and mobile shoppers during the holidays. Last holiday, Amazon customers
added seven books and five toys every second to Amazon Wish Lists. Other
features of Amazon Wish List include:
NEW Save-A-Photo: With the new Save-A-Photo feature, customers
can snap a picture of anything from anywhere and save it to their
Amazon Wish List.
Universal Wish List Add-on: The Amazon Wish List is truly
universal. Customers can add anything from any online site to their
Amazon Wish List with a simple add-on available for any browser.
Don’t Spoil My Surprises: This feature does not reveal to the
Wish List creator which items have been purchased, so every gift is
truly a surprise. However, once an item is purchased from an Amazon
Wish List, other shoppers will see only what remains on the Wish List
– avoiding duplicate gifts.
Virtual Notes: Customers can save an idea and search for it
later by adding a virtual note to an Amazon Wish List. Jot down
anything and give friends and family a little gifting inspiration.
Amazon.com opened on the World Wide Web in July 1995. The company is
guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor
focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and
long-term thinking. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized
recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct
Publishing, Kindle, Fire phone, Fire tablets, and Fire TV are some of
the products and services pioneered by Amazon.
