What Is Amazon Try Before You Buy? (how It Works, Returns + More)

With online shopping taking off, it’s no wonder that millions of people are choosing to shop online rather than in person, on sites like Amazon!

  If you’ve been thinking about buying something on Amazon, you may want to check out what the program Try Before You Buy is all about.  I checked into the details and can share a few nuggets about the program.

What Is Amazon Try Before You Buy In 2022?

To start off, you might want to check out Amazon’s “Try Before You Buy” feature. When you buy a Kindle book on Amazon, you can try it out for three days for free.
When you log in to your Amazon account, you’ll see a message that says “Try Before You Buy” to the left of Amazon’s front page.

How Does Amazon Try Before You Buy Work?

You can choose to test a pair of shoes or an item of clothing for 30 days and get the same refund if you’re not satisfied for any reason. Your order will then continue as if it were a normal purchase. It’s a way for customers to try a new item or pair of shoes before they commit to a purchase.

Make sure you are signed in to your Amazon account and click the Checkout icon before adding any eligible items

To see eligible items that are currently in your cart with the free shipping option, please check out the Try Before You Buy cart under your Account > Orders (for all orders) or go to your Account > View Your Orders (for all orders) menu item.

It usually takes 4-6 business days for shipments to be delivered. The seven-day try-on period starts once you get the last item in your order. Sometimes they’re shipped separately.

When you try on a product without buying it, we don’t charge you for the item. Instead, we charge you for the shipping and handling we had to do to get it to you.

The full 7 days allow you to try on all items in the comfort and privacy of your home, to keep (or return) anything you’re not crazy about, and (hopefully) buy what you love.

You must complete the checkout of Amazon before midnight of the seventh day. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full amount of the order.

You can send back the items to the same place with the same boxes they arrived in.

There is a limit of six items per order and you can use the Try Items button to keep finding the best styles for you.

And if you do, make sure to keep a Prime membership so you can take full advantage of this handy at-home try-on option.

How to Make Returns on Amazon Try Before You Buy

The Amazon Try Before You Buy concept has been very popular in the recent years, mainly because you can order and return a product with very little wait time.

I hope you don’t mind
And that’s all for today!
Check out the link below and let me know what you think!
And as usual, thanks for watching!

If you don’t confirm your returns ahead of time, Amazon will charge the full value of the order, so be sure to confirm your returns ahead of time.

I have your return items and the prepaid return label so the only thing left to do is make sure that you’re giving us instructions on what to do with the items we received.

The return policies vary depending on the type of item. Amazon will require refunds within 7 days of the last try-on day.

Once the box is sent back, it is the responsibility of the customer to receive the items and return the box for a refund. Any customs fees incurred by the shipper are not the responsibility of the seller nor the seller to receive the package for the buyer and it does not matter if this is a private or commercial buyer.

Amazon will charge your payment method at the end of the seven-day try-on timeframe if you’re keeping and not returning anything.

[Original] You can change the way that you return your product anytime during that seven day period.

The earlier you start the returns process, the more likely the clothes you return will be exchanged for something from the brand’s private collections.

How to Get Started with Amazon Try Before You Buy

If you want to try out a style you don’t like, make sure you’re logged in, and if you have a Prime membership.

If you have a Prime Membership, there is a section of Prime Try Before You Buy on the Amazon website and app.

This is an organized product collection from Amazon Essentials and top name brands like Levi’s, Champion, Adidas, New Balance, Calvin Klein, and many more.

You can also keep an eye out for the Prime Try Before You Buy tag to see if the item is in stock and eligible for Prime Shipping.

Add eligible items to your cart and proceed to checkout to order your box and get set up for an at-home wardrobe try-on.
No time for a try-on? No worries. Simply send us your receipt after your first delivery and we will be happy to provide you with a free in home credit toward your next subscription box.

If you don’t have Prime but you want to try it then you can sign up today at http://www.amazon.com/prime/.

Are Amazon Try Before You Buy and Personal Shopper the Same Thing?

Personal Shopper is an optional service that lets you receive product recommendations and price updates directly from Amazon.
Personal Shopper uses algorithms that are derived from feedback you provide from your previous product purchases to make recommendations.

The service is free for Prime members until you spend $79 per year. After that, it is $9.99 per year.

The main difference between the two programs is that Try Before You Buy is free and Personal Shopper costs $4.99 per styling.

Essentially, while Try Before You Buy allows you to pick styles yourself, Personal Shopper allows you to get suggestions and inspiration based upon the information that they have on your preferences.

You get to talk to a stylist about your fit and budget preferences for hand picking clothes for you.

Both the Try Before You Buy and Personal Shopper have a seven minute trial period. You can also return it if you don’t like it.

There will probably be a few extra dollars to be paid for the items, but there will also be no upfront costs.

Instead of having to pay for merchandise you do not intend to keep, you only pay for the items you keep, like with Try Before You Buy and Personal Shopper.

To buy shoes from Amazon after you return from
the store, you need to send a picture or scan of your receipt
that shows the shoes you’re returning. The shoes must be unworn and in the original packaging.


Amazon Prime members have this great feature where you can try on things on the website and it’s free. The only downside is that you need a valid Prime membership.

The Amazon Try Before You Buy program lets Prime members choose five items for free shipping. They are allowed seven days to check out and return an item in exchange for a refund.
