How to buy on Amazon?

More and more people are trusting Amazon to make their online purchases, however there are many users who are unaware of how this process works. The wide range of products offered by this platform makes the search not only simple, but also very convenient when shopping on Amazon.

From Nozama, we want to teach you step by step how to shop on Amazon safely for the most favorable experience possible, and show you some of our tips to create the perfect purchase.

Steps to buy on Amazon

1- Create an Account


The most important step is to create an account on Amazon. To do this, you can access through your browser or download the Amazon App on your mobile (you can search for the App store, Play Store, etc.)

Once you’ve entered Amazon’s homepage, you need to look for the link to sign up. It’s usually located in the menu bar, by tapping the Message: Hello Identify Yourself. Or next to the Amazon search bar.

When you click on “login”, you must select the option: create account. A form will be displayed with the necessary data to create your account:

  • First name
  • Regular email
  • Password for Amazon

When your user is registered, it will appear in the header of the navigation menu and you can start shopping.

2- Search for the Product You Want to Buy


On the home page you will find a search bar. Type in the name of the product (you can include descriptions to make your search more specific), for example: black women’s shoes and tap on the magnifying glass to search. Amazon will automatically show you all the products that match your search term.

You can also search Amazon by browsing the different categories and subcategories that their products are categorized into. This option is available in the Menu bar – Search by Departments. You can also add filters such as ratings, shipping costs, brand, price… to be more specific about the product you are looking for.

Another way to find products that you don’t know how to describe is by searching by photo. This option is only available for the App version on mobile. Next to the search bar you will find the symbol of a camera, you can take a photo of the object or upload an image that you already have in the gallery and Amazon will show a catalog of products whose images are similar to the one in your search. This tool can be very useful when someone recommends a product to us but we don’t know how to look for it. All you have to do is upload the photo and Amazon will show you what you were looking for.

3- Choosing the Right Product


Once the final results of your search appear, knowing how to buy on Amazon is knowing how to choose well. Since you’ll find a list of a wide variety of products, you should make a comparison according to your preferences.

Find the price that’s right for you. Check product reviews and reviews to verify that it meets what you need and that the seller is really clear about delivery times, product quality, or the correct product description.

If you want more detailed information about an item, you can click on the product to access its information sheet. In it you can find the variations of the product such as colors, sizes, formats; You will also be able to see if the order is sent by Amazon or another company (normally shipments managed by Amazon arrive earlier and also offer real-time tracking of the status of your order), if they have stock of the product and if there are offers at that time, shipping costs, the estimated delivery date…

Our advice is to compare at least a couple of products so that the final choice is the most successful.

4- Payment Process


When you have decided which product you want to buy, you can add it to the cart and search for other products on the website, or process the order by clicking on: Howto buy now

A page will appear with some information to fill in (such as the payment method, the shipping address, the option to send it as a gift) and a final summary of the purchase. After checking that everything is perfect, select the option: Confirm order, to finish with the purchase.

You will automatically receive a confirmation email. When you open it, you’ll see a summary of the order and an Amazon url or link to locate the package. You will be able to check if it is in transit, in delivery, if it has already been delivered or the information of the delivery person or carrier in case it is necessary to contact them.

Now all that’s left is to be patient and wait for your order to arrive.

Remember, future purchases will be much faster with the one-click buy option. By having your username saved, the shipping and payment details will be securely recorded so that you don’t have to fill them in again. However, you can always add different shipping addresses or new payment methods before confirming the order.

We hope we’ve helped you shop on Amazon safely.

See you soon!
