#AmazonCart Allows You to Shop from Twitter

Have you been browsing your Twitter feed and find an Amazon product you want to buy but don’t want to lose your place browsing your tweets? You won’t have to worry about that anymore thanks to #AmazonCart.

Just to make it even easier to spend our money, Twitter and Amazon have now entered into some type of partnership. Now when you see an Amazon link in your feed, you can just reply to it and type “#AmazonCart”. This will place it in the cart for you and allow you to keep browsing Twitter.

Of course, you need to link your Amazon and Twitter accounts to have this work properly. If you try to add something to your cart without the two being linked, it will remind you to do so.

Linking your Amazon and Twtter account

The linking procedure is easy. Just go to Amazon.com and login to your account. Under the “Settings -> Your Account -> Personalization -> Social Settings”, click on the Twitter Settings tab and click “Connect”. That’s all you need to do to connect your accounts and begin using “#AmazonCart”.


However, even after hitting Reply in your Twitter feed and typing “#AmazonCart”, you will still have to go to Amazon at one point to officially buy the item. You have only placed it in your cart and still need to go through all the steps of purchasing such as supplying your payment and shipping information. However, it’s saved in your cart for whenever you decide you want to buy it.


Using “#AmazonCart” should help to make our lives a little easier. If you try it, let us know your experience with it in the comments section below.
