The e-commerce giant Amazon has launched a separate website for Prime Now, its one-to-two hour delivery service available in 25 cities across the U.S.
The ultra-fast delivery service had previously been only available through the Amazon iPhone or Android apps. Now, Prime members in select cities will be able to shop from a web browser for groceries and other items to be delivered in two hours or less. The service comes at no additional cost to Amazon Prime members, which costs $99 a year, though a modifiable $5 tip for the delivery person is advised.
“Prime Now has been so popular with customers who love the convenience of super fast delivery,” said Prime Now Vice President Stephenie Landry in a statement, according to the The Seattle Times. “We have expanded the service rapidly over the last year to new cities and customers told us that they would want the option to shop on a browser as well as mobile—so we’re excited to expand the shopping experience to www.primenow.com.”
Prime now is currently available in the following cities:
Manhattan and Brooklyn
Minneapolis and St. Paul
San Francisco Bay Area
Seattle and Eastside
