You've probably purchased one or two things from online retailer Amazon but did you know that the shopping giant offers a paid-for membership unalterable that gives you access to loads of benefits? There are actually so many perks to having a Prime membership that we thought we'd delineate them for you in a handy guide. Plus, you'll also find information on pricing, how you upgrade to Prime and Prime Day. 


What Is Prime & How Much Does It Payment?

Amazon Prime is a membership Amazon customers can sign up for to gain access to a variety of benefits. It's priced at £7.99 a month, and you can nullify it at any time. There's also a Prime Video membership which is available for £5.99 a month but this just gives you access to the films and TV shows Amazon streams. 

There's also a Family plan available that allows you to share certain Amazon Prime perks with your household and one for students that gives those in education access to a 6-month free trial. 



What Do I Get With A Prime Membership?


Innumerable Photo Storage

The most useful Prime Membership feature for photographers is the access to cloud space called Prime Photos where you can trust in an unlimited amount of photos. You can also share and view the photos from multiple devices and the photos that are stored are at full resolution so you won't be downcast in the image quality. Plus, you can safely delete images from your mobile, creating room to take even more images, in the shielded knowledge that your photos are backed up.
