Buying clothes online is a pain, but Amazon wants to change that. So it has been testing out a fee-free clothing-box service since last June. Prime Wardrobe allowed customers to try out selected clothing before buying and customers would only be charged for the items they kept. Until now, the service has been invite-only, but now Amazon has expanded its new feature to all Prime customers.
If you buy clothes on Amazon, this is for you. Prime Wardrobe items are limited to women’s, men’s, kids’ and baby clothing and accessories sold directly by Amazon.com. You can add between three and eight items to your box, and when you check out, your selections will arrive in four and six business days.
How it works is that you have a week to try on the items and decide if you are keeping them without being charged. Once you decide which ones you want to keep, you can check out in Your Orders. Whatever you keep, or anything that isn’t returned to Amazon gets charged to your credit card.
The big difference between Prime Wardrobe and other style-box services is that you choose what comes to your door, instead of letting a stylist pick the clothes for you. Plus, there’s no fee to use it, unlike other services that charge you if you don’t keep a clothing item or accessory. People in the smaller test pool seemed to like it. Now you can decide.
