Amazon announced that is now offering the recurring shopping program called Programe e Poupe (Subscribe and Save, in its English version) in Brazil.

Orders can be monthly or even half-yearly and are billed to the customer’s credit card before shipping. It complements the Prime subscription benefit launched in Brazil last year. For those who are also subscribers to Amazon Prime, which offers free shipping for various products, discounts on Programe e Poupe are up to 15%.

“We want to bring even more convenience to the Brazilian customer,” Melina Ioshii, leader of the consumables category at Amazon stated. “Our goal is to take care of the operational part, to remove the concern of customers, so that they can better enjoy the time they have at home. This way, we make life easier for customers by automatically replacing products that are used every month, following the preferences and schedule defined by the consumer themselves without having to worry about making new purchases of the item,” she added.
