Amazon Dash Replenishment Service

The other (and perhaps more interesting side) of yesterday’s Dash Button announcement is the back-end that makes it work:

Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) enables connected devices to order physical goods from Amazon when supplies are running low — like a coffee maker that orders more coffee beans. By using DRS, device makers are able to leverage Amazon’s authentication and payment systems, customer service, and fulfillment network — giving their customers access to Amazon’s low prices, great selection, and reliable delivery.
