Amazon add-on items serve a great purpose.

3. Can't Buy Add-On Items + Can't Checkout?

Note: If your cart contains a mix of Add-on items and other items with a total value of less than $25, you can check out with the other items, but your Add-on items will automatically save for later.

You also have the option to designate any add-on items that you previously saved to be added to your next qualifying order that contains $25 or more of items shipped by

4. Can You Buy Add-On Items By Themselves?

Good news! Amazon allows you to buy add-on items by themselves! The problem? There’s a slight catch. You still need to make sure your total order value exceeds $25 for shipping eligibility. If your order is less than $25, you can’t checkout & place your order.

You can learn more about this from Amazon themselves in their help center here

5. What Does Add-On Item Even Mean On Amazon?

Add-on items on Amazon are simple. Add-on items are everyday items that are cheaper than average; all sold directly by Amazon. The catch? You can’t just add a random add-on item to your cart & checkout. Why? Amazon requires you to purchase at least $25 before checking out with an add-on item in your cart. 

For some people this can be frustrating if they only want to checkout with that add-on item. Fortunately, Amazon sells such wide-ranging products with a near limitless amount of uses, we’re confident you’ll find something on Amazon to fit your $25 threshold.
