Amazon's New Dash Buttons Let You Push to Pay

Over 20 years ago, Amazon announced its plans to let users pay for items in their shopping cart with just one click. Today, shoppers can now use a "dash" button to order items in their home that they need. The button is smaller than a standard remote control for a TV and it allows customers to make purchases without any swipes and without having to talk into a microphone.

Customers are able to purchase everything from books to groceries and much more. Amazon hopes to entice shoppers who use their service to buy standard items, such as paper towels and coffee, as well as other items they may need that they are close to running out on instead of having to go to the store.

There are several brand-specific buttons available, including some for Tide, Brita, and Whirlpool.
