    this is what I was on about xx

  • Stacey-lee E.

    Am I the only one that thinks these things could go horribly wrong if you have young children, I can just imagine my kids pressing it like 100 times and then getting a delivery of 600 toilet rolls

    • Tasha D.

      Apparently you can only press it once then an order comes x

    • Stacey-lee E.

      Yeah but how often can it be pressed?

    • Annie S.

      Simple answer is to not put it where the kids can reach it!

    • Stacey-lee E.

      Haha good idea lol

    • Rachel M.

      I think I read somewhere it only works once in a 24hour period

    • PlayPennies

      It only generates one order at a time no matter how many times the button is pressed. It also sends a notification to your phone so that you have a chance to cancel if it's been pressed by mistake. A second order can't be generated until the first has been dispatched, with a maximum of one in 24 hours, plus you can place it well out of the reach of children too. The article above is about how to hack them, but this one tells you more about how they work, hope that helps :) :

    • Sarah N.

      Is the £4.99 discount per button ordered?

  • Liz G.

    Am I not getting something .... So you have hundreds of these branded buttons around your house that you press to order that linked product ??? Surely not ??

  • Jackie R.

    Thomas told me about these!

  • Heather S.

    £5 for every button? Then the cost of the product rather spend 5 minutes making a list and ordering.
