Buying things online has always added a sense of ease to the shopping process, scrapping the long lines and all that walking for a more point-and-click experience.
Amazon has been working diligently to not only have just about everything someone might want to buy ready within its digital storefront, but also on making sure that getting what a customer wants to their door as quickly as possible. That’s where Amazon Prime Now comes in.
The service was just recently announced, and its for customers that are signed up for Amazon Prime and also happen to live in select areas within Manhattan. As the “Now” part of the title suggests, this is all about faster delivery, as Amazon promises a staggering one-hour delivery window for many products. The new service only works through a brand new Android app called Prime Now, and while two-hour delivery is free, getting your package in one hour or less will cost an additional $7.99.
The Prime Now app works just like any other shopping-focused app, and non-Prime subscribers can download it to check out the goods within. However, as mentioned above, to actually use the service one will have to be a subscriber to Prime, which costs $99.99 per year. It has limited availability now, but Amazon plans on expanding the service throughout 2015. You can learn even more about Prime Now through this link.
