This morning Amazon announced that they are expanding the Wi-Fi connected Dash Button product line to cover over 100 brands, allowing customers to replenish items ranging from Doritos to Trojans with a click of the button.  Slice Intelligence found that among the current button line-up available for purchase, fewer than fifty percent of people that bought Dash Buttons actually made an order.

Tide cleans up with Dash

The top selling button available to buyers is for Tide. The Tide SKU available is for the 81-count package of Tide laundry pods, priced at $19.97.

Among those that made a purchase of the brand for which they had bought a button, the average spend per order has varied between $10.76, and $27.11 dollars per order, with Bounty having the highest average spend. On average, Dash Button users order items about once every two months.

The buttons are sticking on early adopters

The people who are buying these buttons are look like the classic techie early adopters– affluent males.  This finding isn't a surprise, given that this is a brand-new technology product, albeit a simple one, tied to a single household account. As traditionally seen with early products, the buttons are only being purchased by a very small subset of the online shopping population. With the introduction of more brands, the buttons may be adopted by the larger set of the population.
