Residents of Baltimore and Miami, who are addicted to shop online at Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) have a reason to smile now since the Seattle based Fortune 500 company has formally announced its “one hour delivery” service. The service will be named as “Prime Now” and would be available only at selected Pin codes only.
This service had been limited to parts of the New York City by the e-commerce giant and was launched on December of 2014. A subscription fee of $99 has to be paid by the user to be qualified to avail this service. Such users can use the Amazon Prime Now app to order anything from its wide range of items in their warehouse.
It looks like as if Amazon’s prime intention now is to provide its products at an accelerated pace to its customers and this has only been possible as Amazon continue to increase its warehouses and logistics facilities. At the same time, by the use of relevant software and increasing their operational efficiencies, Amazon will successfully achieve these targets.
In a press release, the Senior Vice President of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Dave Clark, said that the eCommerce giant witnessed a huge demand on everything. It includes essentials like paper towels and other items such as a “hard to find, yet top selling toy” to be delivered in 23 minutes.
The Prime Now service will be available between 8a.m. to 10p.m., throughout the week. While the subscription takes care of the two-hour delivery, making it free, Prime members would further have to pay an extra $7.99 to avail the one-hour delivery option. The service would be available to other areas in 2015 and customers can download the app to receive notification when a product will is available under the Prime Now service.
