Buy now or add to cart? Which one is better?

Discussion in 'Amazon' started by dess71, Aug 9, 2013.

    My previous posts were buy now buttons where a visitor clicks and goes to Amazon product page. Now I changed it to go directly to add to cart. The problem is Amazon will not add that product to cart automatically but asks the visitor to confirm if he wants to add to cart. I know the add to cart cookies are of longer cookie of 90 days. But I think Amazon asking visitors to confirm distracts people. Which one is better based on your experience?

    If you intend adding the word Amazon in a domain name then I think it is illegal.

    Ya I use that plugin but Google is kicking my a**. The sites start generating traffic and sales then the big G comes and destroys them after some time. Well I am trying to see my options.

    I have been trying to make money for the past 6 yrs and the total money I made so fat might be close to 13,000 usd. I never made big numbers. But I strongly believe that breakthrough is nearer than ever and once I make it big there shpuld be no return! that is it!

    I personally use "Buy Now" and send visitors to the product overview page for 2 main reasons:
    1. Less confusing for the visitor
    2. Amazon is good at what they do (Selling) why send the visitor to the cart when you can send them to the overview page where they can get more information and potentially purchase "related" products as well

    I used to like the cart when you were able to put it in an iframe and amazon wasn't asking the users to confirm the items into the cart when they got to amazons landing page. On my amazon stores now I enable the Buy at Amazon buttons but also leave the cart option for my sites. I found this to work best for my stores.

    I go for buy now. It`s more direct, it`s practical, it says "you`ll have the product in a couple of minutes".
