In 1997, Amazon launched 1-Click, an innovation that gives customers the ability to make purchases on the Web with just one click of the mouse—no more entering the same information over and over again for each purchase.
1-Click was a first-of-its-kind approach to retail. Before, customers had to re-enter their payment information—even on sites they regularly used—to complete a purchase. 1-Click eliminated this redundancy, making customers' shopping experiences easier and more seamless. It became a new standard for ease of buying on or off the Web.
