Amazon creates text purchasing

April 2, 2008 2:21:38 PM PDT
Amazon.com is launching a new service that lets people compare prices and buy products by text message.The service is called "Amazon TextBuyIt".

Customers simply text the name of the product, its description, or its ID number to Amazon.

Amazon will respond with a text with information about that item or similar products, and to purchase the product, the customer just sends a text right back to purchase.

To use Amazon's new text messaging service, visit https://payments.amazon.com/sdui/sdui/productsServices?sn=mobileShopping/whatIsIt .
