Benefits of Subscribe and Save

For sellers, the benefits of Subscribe & Save are obvious: increased and consistent sales, repeat and loyal customers, and increased visibility through a dedicated storefront. Customers who subscribe to your products are more likely to purchase other products that you offer through your subscribe and save storefront.

That’s due in part to the added discounts they receive for having more subscriptions. For example, customers who have 4 or fewer subscriptions delivered on the same date in the Grocery category will only get a 5% discount. But if they have 5 subscriptions or more, their savings increase to 15%.

The benefits for customers are:

  • Extra savings for customers
    • Savings range anywhere 5% to 20% for diapers from Amazon Mom
  • Convenience
  • Ability to set purchase schedule
