1-Click ordering places Amazon customers’ orders automatically so that they can skip the shopping basket, simplifying their shopping experience.

When customers select “Buy now with 1-Click” on any product page, their order will be automatically placed using the billing and delivery information associated with their 1-Click settings. This not only enables faster checkout, but automatically puts all 1-Click purchases onto the card that they’ve chosen.

With 1-Click advertising promotions, financial services companies can offer customers an added benefit for selecting their brand’s card as their 1-Click payment method.

How do 1-Click promotions work?

Through Amazon Ads’ 1-Click promotions, financial services brands can help increase their card usage on Amazon by offering shoppers a promotion (e.g. $10 off at Amazon) for choosing their bank’s card as their 1-Click payment method. Customers see an immediate benefit in the form of a promotional offer and advertisers have seen both a short-term and long-term impact on card usage. In the three months following 1-Click campaigns, more than two thirds of selected cards remain the main payment method.1 In addition, the simplicity of checkout on a single card can increase spend on that card by up to 3.4 times.2

Maximise impact with a pre-event strategy

By enabling 1-Click, customers browsing during shopping events such as Prime Day can seamlessly shop the volume of deals available on Amazon. Advertisers have also seen success from implementing a 1-Click promotion in the months leading up to Amazon shopping peaks such as Prime Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Last year, a banking advertiser worked with Amazon Ads to implement a two-pronged strategy around Prime Day. They used Amazon’s shopping insights to reach and engage new audiences and a 1-Click promotion to encourage card usage among these shoppers prior to Prime Day. As a result, the advertiser saw both aggregated 1-Click usage and average year-on-year usage exceed campaign goals by 25%.3

As you think about your festive season marketing strategy, consider planning a 1-Click promotion as early as two to three months out to ensure availability leading in to holiday peaks.
