Weekly News: Amazon’s “try it on and buy it”, Romanians like buying clothes, Mytaxi buys Clever Taxi

Amazon lets you try some clothes before you buy them Amazon, in adding to its ever-expanding benefits for Prime customers, will now let customers try on clothing before purchasing it. The program is part of the new Prime Wardrobe, which Amazon announced Tuesday. The program is similar to many “box” services, like StitchFix and TrunkClub, where a few clothing items are sent to the customer, who then gets to try on the clothing before deciding what to keep and purchase and what to send back. The difference with Amazon’s service is that customers get to choose their own items to put in their box, instead of stylists or algorithms. A 10% discount will be applied if customers choose to keep two to three items, while those who pick four items or all of them will receive a 20% discount.
