Once you have received your Amazon Dash Button, you need to set up the device so it can connect to yours WIFI network (only works under Wi-Fi network, not 3G / 4G) and can store the product to buy when the button is pressed.



Then open the Amazon app on your smartphone (if you have not downloaded it yet, proceed immediately, it is available for free for Android, iOS and Windows Phone), log in with your account (if necessary), press the button collocato in alto a sinistra and selects the voice My Account from the bar that compares di lato.

Now, scroll to the bottom and at the bottom of the screen that has opened, locate the box related to Dash devices and presses on the voice Set up a new device located in the latter to start the setup wizard of your Amazon Dash Button.

The Amazon Dash Button configuration procedure is very short and, above all, very simple to complete. The first step you need to take is to press the button Accetta and inizia, after which you must press and hold the Dash Button for about 6 seconds and wait for the blue light on the latter to start flashing.

At this point, select the WIFI network to connect the Dash Button to and enter its access key in the Amazon app on the smartphone. If you do not want to save the key on Amazon and automatically use it on other Dash devices that you will purchase in the future, remove the check mark from the item Save password on Amazon.

Then press on Continueselect il product to associate with the Dash Button from those available (you can only choose products of the same brand as the Dash Button), go NEXT, verify that the data of shipping and payment are correct (otherwise change them) and "tap" the button Finish the configuration to complete the configuration of your Dash Button.




How to use Amazon Dash Button

How do I order a product with the Amazon Dash Button? Simple, by pressing the button on the latter! The acceptance of the order is confirmed by notification on Amazon and via the light on the Dash Button, which first flashes white and then turns green. If the light does not turn green but red, it means that the order was not successful because the product is not available or because there are connection problems with the Wi-Fi network.

By default, the Amazon Dash Button allows you to do only one order at a time: this makes accidental key presses harmless and prevents unwanted orders from being sent. In any case, if you want, you can deactivate this protection measure.

To allow the execution of multiple orders with Amazon Dash Button, start the Amazon app on your smartphone, press the button che si trova in alto a sinistra e seleciona la voce My Account from the bar that appears on the side. In the screen that opens, select the option Manage devices from the menu Dash devices, presses on the name of the product that you have associated with your "key" and move up ON the switch related to multiple orders.

Personally, I do not recommend deactivating the protection against multiple orders, also because the Amazon Dash Button is designed to be easily accessible by everyone (it has a hook and an adhesive strip to attach it to walls, shelves, etc.) but obviously you decide which solution best suits your needs.



Know, however, that you can cancel orders placed through the Dash Button before the products are shipped by following the standard procedure for canceling orders on Amazon, then by going to the section My Account> My Orders of the Amazon website or app and clicking on the item to cancel the order.

Change the product associated with the Amazon Dash Button

To change the product associated with your Amazon Dash Button, start the Amazon app on your smartphone, press the button che si trova in alto a sinistra e seleciona la voce My Account from the bar that appears on the side. After that go to Dash Devices> Manage Devices, select the name of the product currently associated with the Dash Button twice in a row and choose the new product you want to associate with the device.

From the same menu you can also change the information relating to the payment method, shipping, notifications and, if necessary, you can disable the Dash Button pressing the appropriate button.

It's all very intuitive, there is no need for too many explanations. In any case, if you want to learn more about Amazon Dash Button, consult the official Amazon guide where you can really find everything there is to know about this nice device.
