The e-commerce company has started to offer one- and two-hour delivery of beer, wine and hard liquor with the launch of its Prime Now service in the Seattle area, the company announced today. Seattle is the first U.S. city to have booze delivery made available through Prime Now; London was the first international city to get the privilege back in June.
Prime Now is Amazon's new expedited delivery option available in parts of nine American cities that is exclusive to members of Amazon's $99-a-year Prime shipping membership. The service, available only through the Prime Now mobile app, offers Prime members delivery of a smaller catalogue of goods than the main Prime program. But eligible products can be delivered within two hours for no delivery charge, and in one hour for $7.99.
