Abstract

A method and system for user initiated repeat purchases via the internet is provided. A user opens a dedicated client to instantly order goods as specified by their preferences. The client sends a unique identifier to a server where the associated account(s) is retrieved. Once successfully identified, the user's purchase preferences and delivery/billing information are accessed from their account which is located on the server. Based on the preferences, goods and services are provided for the user and their account is automatically charged. All of this occurs with zero interaction from the user outside of opening the client (most commonly a web site).
