One of the unique and novel ventures we’ve seen from Amazon is the creation of the Dash buttons. Initially thought to be some kind of prank, it was an actual product in which customers could purchase Dash buttons linked specifically to certain products. The idea is that this could be used for everyday products and customers could re-order them by pressing the button.

However, earlier this year, Amazon announced that they will no longer be selling these buttons, and it looks like those who do own existing Dash buttons, they will stop working at the end of the month as well as Amazon has confirmed that they will be disconnecting them on the 31st of August.

In a statement made to Engadget, “Since sales of Dash Button devices ceased earlier this year, we have seen continued growth of other shopping options to meet customer needs, including Virtual Dash Button, Dash Replenishment, Alexa Shopping, and Subscribe & Save With this [in] mind, starting August 31, 2019, customers will no longer be able to place orders through Dash Button devices globally.”

Note that this only applies to the physical Dash buttons and that those who use the virtual Dash buttons on Amazon’s website or the mobile app will still be able to take advantage of it. Like we said, it was a rather novel kind of product but we’re sure there will be some who will be sad to see it go.
