Amazon is launching ‘Amazon Access’, a new hub designed to serve budget shoppers through a number of programs, discounts and features promoting affordable shopping.
In addition to its low-cost offerings, ‘Amazon Access’ gives customers access to a number of payment options like SNAP EBT and Amazon Layaway, which lets customers reserve selected items for 20% of the total cost and pay the rest over time, Amazon Cash, which lets customers shop on the marketplace without a debit or credit card, and other options that let customers clip coupons and find deals on daily essentials.
‘Amazon Access’ also features a number of accessibility options designed to enhance users’ experience on the platform by giving them the choice to change their shopping language and contact accessibility customer support for more help.
As part of the announcement, Amazon also rebranded its discounted Prime membership, which it launched in 2017, into ‘Prime Access’.
‘Prime Access’ will give EBT and select government assistance recipients access to a Prime membership for just $6.99 per month, which is normally priced at $14.99 per month.
