             Buy detergents, diapers and toothpaste at the push of a button. This should now be over, says the district court Munich I and classifies Amazon Dash Button as illegal. Amazon sees it differently and wants to go to the next instance.
            

        

        The regional court Munich I decided on Thursday under the file number 12 O 730/17 that the Amazon Dash Buttons are not lawful. The court found that the customer is not informed about the current purchase price and the actual ordered goods before buying an item by pressing a button. The consumer center NRW had sued in September 2016, shortly after the market introduction of the Dash Button in Germany. The judgment is not final, so that initially nothing changes for the consumer. Amazon has announced that it intends to appeal.
At the time of the order, it is not clear to the buyer what the purchase price of the product is, since the Dash Button does not have a display, the NRW consumer advocates justified their claim. There is also the possibility that the consumer has linked a product to the Dash Button months ago and no longer knows what exactly the product is and what quantities of product packaging it contains, for example. Before buying, the consumer will not be informed. Since Amazon reserves in its terms and conditions price changes and, if necessary, replacement of another goods, this may be to the detriment of the consumer. This makes a price comparison difficult, the plaintiffs argued further.

Ineffective clauses The district court of Munich followed this line of argument and classified the clause for the price adjustment and replacement delivery of another product as inadmissible. In addition, the judges made it clear that Amazon's Dash Button lacks a reference that points to a payable order, violating paragraph 312j, paragraph 3 of the Civil Code. On the dash buttons are printed only a company logo and a product group, but not the lettering "Order Paid".
Amazon continues to see its Dash Buttons in line with German law and wants to appeal the ruling. So far it is not known whether the company will make adjustments to the Dash Button.
Amazon sells the Dash Button at a price of 4.99 euros, which will be remunerated on a first order. Before the first use, the button can be assigned an app with a product from a specific product group of a manufacturer. At the touch of a button, the order is sent via a Wi-Fi connection. The buyer then receives an order confirmation with information about the product and the purchase price. The order can then be canceled if necessary. In addition, a return of the ordered items is possible.
