They reinvented the grocery store and now they've upgraded the world of online subscriptions. Of course, we're referring to Amazon, which recently rolled out a self-service subscriptions marketplace.

According to a company press release, the new subscription services allow providers a little more wiggle room when it comes to setting subscription prices, giving them the ability to offer introductory, monthly, and annual pricing options as well as Prime exclusive deals.

Another benefit is that subscribers can manage their subscriptions easier, which increases the likelihood of them subscribing to more services. Once a purchase is made on Amazon.com, customers can access their subscriptions on any iOS, Android or Amazon Fire device that's supported by the subscription provider.

"Over the years, Amazon has gained extensive experience in the memberships and subscriptions space, innovating across programs like Prime and Kindle Unlimited," said Lovina McMurchy, general manager of Subscribe with Amazon. "Today, we're excited to extend our selection by offering subscription businesses a self-service way to make their subscriptions available to millions of Amazon customers."

Here are just some of the things you can now subscribe to on Amazon:
