Amazon’s “Try Before You Buy” Prime Service Launches in the US

Posted on June 20, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Amazon with 7 Comments

Amazon is launching its Prime Wardrobe service to all its Prime subscribers in the United States. First announced last year, the company’s new Prime Wardrobe service allows Prime subscribers to try on clothes, shoes, and accessories before actually paying for them.

For every Prime Wardrobe order, you will need to purchase at least 3 items and a max of 8 items. Once you place the order, it may take a few days to ship — but once it’s shipped, you have a total of 7 days to try out the items and return the ones that don’t fit, or the ones you simply don’t like with the resealable box and prepaid label. Not all clothing items are eligible for Prime Wardrobe, but items that are eligible will have a Prime Wardrobe logo. TechCrunch reports the service mostly “favors” Amazon’s in-house clothing brands like Amazon Essentials, but it also includes some of the high-end fashion brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Lacoste, Levi’s, Hugo Boss, etc.

The idea behind Prime Wardrobe isn’t anything new. The evolution of online shopping has paved the way for many similar services, like the UK’s ASOS, where you can buy as many items you want, try them out, return them within 30 days, or pay later with Klarna without having to pay any extra charges. It’s very convenient.

If you are in the United States and subscribe to Amazon Prime, you can give Prime Wardrobe a try here.
