Amazon Launches Self-Service Marketplace for Subscription Providers

Amazon Launches Self-Service Marketplace for Subscription Providers Amazon Remember that subscription tool I told you about last month, Subscribe with Amazon?

It has now officially launched:

Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) today announced a self-service subscriptions marketplace that allows digital subscription providers to reach millions of Amazon customers. Subscribe with Amazon is a new way for subscription businesses to sell on Amazon, offering them targeted customer exposure through popular discovery features such as search and recommendations while also providing customers with a simple way to purchase and manage their subscriptions. Selling on Subscribe with Amazon is easy with self-service enrollment. The program allows subscription providers the ability to offer customers flexible pricing including introductory, monthly, and annual pricing options, as well as the opportunity to explore offering Prime exclusive deals. Digital subscriptions currently available span a variety of areas including streaming content, news/magazines, learning, and lifestyle. To learn more about how to become a subscription provider on Subscribe with Amazon, visit: www.subscribewithamazon.com.

Since I more than adequately covered this service a month ago, I am simply going to repeat an excerpt of the post I published last month.

This service has existed under its current name since at least last August. This is the subscription service that Amazon has been using to sell Loot boxes like STEM club, and that companies other than Amazon have used to sell access to paid cloud services like Dropbox Plus, online classes, and 3rd-party tech support services.

Princeton review offers its homework service through Amazon, and you can also find other Amazon subscription services like Kindle Unlimited, Audible, and Amazon rapids available in this section.

Amazon takes a 30% commission on subscriptions in the first year, and 15% after that. You can find out more from both the subscriber and supplier side, or browse the available subscriptions.

About Nate Hoffelder (9928 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
