If you don't care about ordering things online and getting them quickly in addition to your complimentary Amazon Prime Video service and free unlimited photo storage, then paying for just that service and nothing else costs $8.99, £5.99 or AU$5.99 a month. For example, the popularity of Amazon's digital home assistant Alexa and its related hardware like the Echo give members another way to take advantage of benefits like streaming music and free shipping.
The study also estimates that 28% of members are now on the $10.99 monthly Prime membership, which was introduced previous year, while the rest pays the traditional $99 yearly price. Here's everything you need to know.
