London, July 1: Now, customers don't have to wait for days to get delivery from Amazon. The company has launched "Prime Now", its one-hour delivery service.
After launching "Prime Now", Amazon declared that it would deliver goods worth 20 pounds ($31.43) or more to its Prime members in one hour. However, the service is yet to be launched worldwide.
Currently, the service has been launched only in a few selected areas in London. The company in its UK website said that it would expand the programme to additional cities in the United Kingdom by the end of 2015.
For this one-hour service, which is called Prime Now, Amazon will charge a fee of 6.99 pounds. In its UK website, the company said, "This is just the beginning. London is our first Prime Now city in the UK and we are already working on making Prime Now available in more postcodes in London and beyond."
Prime Now earlier was launched in United States, where the company began offering the service six months ago. Amazon in Dec, 2014 launched Prime Now in parts of New York, then expanded the service to other cities including Baltimore and Miami.
