This new Amazon feature is very well explained and great news for authors and readers. Thanks Chris for bringing it to our attention.
When I logged into Author Central this morning, I saw an announcement for a new feature called AmazonCart. If you visit Author Central, you can find the announcement there.
The new AmazonCart feature works with Twitter:
- If a Twitter user receives a tweet with a link to an Amazon product, the customer can reply to the tweet adding the #AmazonCart hashtag.
- If they have connected their Twitter accounts to Amazon, replying to the tweet with the AmazonCart hashtag will add the product from the tweet to their cart at Amazon.
- At their convenience, the product will be waiting in the cart at checkout at Amazon.
The new #AmazonCart hashtag will start working Tuesday, May 6, 2014.
What do you have to do to take advantage of this?
- All you need to do is periodically tweet with a link to your book in the message.
