retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Business Insider reports on how Walmart is using an "easy reorder" app that tracks shoppers' repeat purchases, logs them, and then makes it possible for shoppers to access from a computer or mobile device to place a repeat order for those items.

"I have over 150 items that are in my recorder list," Jordan Sweetnam, vice president of product and customer experience for Walmart e-commerce, tells Business Insider. "I think of it as time management in my household with two kids. Everything is two touches away."
KC's View:
This is Walmart dipping its oar into the subscription territory that Amazon has mined so effectively. It is a start ... but I still think that asking me to reorder amounts to imposing a step that I'd rather avoid.
