Amazon has announced it is launching Amazon Access, a hub for US-based customers to explore the ecommerce giant’s more affordable shopping programmes which includes discounts.
The company has also announced that its discounted tier of Prime membership, which was introduced in 2017, will now be called Prime Access.
Amazon Access will allow its customers in the US to find information on options like payment with SNAP EBT, and Amazon Layaway.
“Amazon launched a grassroots programme to listen and learn from customers in communities across the country. In fact, this customer feedback is central to the design of our products and services,” Amazon wrote in a blog post.
“We found that many of our customers are looking for ways to save money and time, now more than ever. We know that online shopping is a big part of how they save, and that’s why we’re introducing Amazon Access, a hub to make shopping easier for all customers.”
Last month, Amazon announced a new two-day shopping event exclusive to Prime members, starting 11th October.
The event will take place six weeks ahead of Black Friday, giving Prime customers the chance to spread the cost of items over the winter.
