    Buy with Prime & Codal: Streamlining checkout and order fulfillment for eCommerce merchants

    The speed and convenience of Amazon has set a new standard for eCommerce merchants. Today’s online shoppers expect an intuitive checkout process, free shipping, and one to two-day deliveries—but many brands lack the technology and resources to meet this expectation.

    The speed and convenience of Amazon has set a new standard for eCommerce merchants. Today’s online shoppers expect an intuitive checkout process, free shipping, and one to two-day deliveries—but many brands lack the technology and resources to meet this expectation.
    As an enterprise consultancy specializing in eCommerce, Codal helps brands solve problems like high abandonment and low conversion rates through modern, data-driven UX/UI design and best-in-breed third-party solutions.
    For merchants currently listing products on and leveraging Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), Buy with Prime offers a solution to shopping cart abandonment. Now, merchants can implement the checkout experience that millions of Amazon Prime members trust for their online store. In fact, merchants that added Buy with Prime as an option at checkout experienced a 25%* average increase in their shopper conversion rate.
    Codal collaborates with a wide range of technology providers to not only recommend, but integrate, manage, and optimize the best third-party solutions for our clients, based on their unique goals and technical requirements. Thus, to help our current and future clients meet user expectations at checkout, optimize their end-to-end customer journey, and ultimately grow their online business, Codal became a Buy with Prime Partner.

    How does Buy with Prime work?

    Ecommerce businesses can add a Buy with Prime button as a checkout option on their website product pages, enabling shoppers to use their Amazon Prime account to make purchases. For the customer, this saves time and energy in the checkout process by automatically pulling payment and shipping details from their Amazon account. It also helps establish purchase confidence by providing a familiar and trusted shopping experience for Prime members.
    For the merchant, the order fulfillment process for Buy with Prime purchases is executed through Amazon Multi-Channel Fulfillment. With over 200 fulfillment centers, Amazon has one of the largest, most technologically advanced fulfillment networks in the world, providing impressive shipping speed, efficiency, and delivery for Prime members. Buy with Prime allows eCommerce merchants both big and small to leverage this order fulfillment experience on their own websites.
    In addition, merchants can access Buy with Prime analytics to better understand their customers’ purchasing habits, make more informed updates to their checkout flow, and enhance their retargeting campaigns. The Buy with Prime merchant console makes it easy to analyze and report on critical data regarding sales, returns, average order volume, and more.  
    To get started with Buy with Prime , you must have a US-based entity, and a Professional Seller Central account or an Amazon Supply Chain account, as well as an Amazon Pay account. If you don’t already have these accounts set up, you can do so in the Buy with Prime registration process. You can learn more here .
