Customers in Liverpool can choose from more than 15,000 items with Prime Now, including essentials such as nappies, coffee, chocolate and fresh milk, as well as other popular items like games consoles, toys, gifts and sports equipment—all via a simple and easy-to-use mobile app. Prime Now customers in selected postcodes can choose delivery within one hour of ordering for £6.99, or free delivery within a choice of two-hour, same-day delivery slots between 8am and midnight, seven days a week.
“Prime Now is our fastest delivery option ever and we are excited to make it available for customers in Liverpool,” said Jason Weston, director of Prime Now. “Whether it’s essentials like fresh milk, nappies or even a last minute gift, customers love the convenience of delivery straight to their door in less than sixty minutes.”
Amazon introduced Prime Now into Manchester in December 2015 having launched into London, Birmingham and Newcastle earlier in the year. One of the fastest Amazon Prime Now deliveries in the UK to date was Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS4) which was ordered at 10:06am, shipped from Amazon’s Erdington delivery station in Birmingham and delivered at 10:21am to a postcode in Castle Vale.
Prime Now customers also have access to a range of chilled and frozen items from yogurts, bread, fresh juices and eggs to pizzas, fish fingers and ice-cream. The most popular Prime Now purchase of 2015 was the Fire TV Stick – closely followed by bottled water, Pepsi Max and Terry’s Chocolate Orange. FIFA 16 (PS4) has proved the most commonly purchased video game since Prime Now launched in the UK in June 2015.
Prime Now is made available through Amazon Logistics which empowers independent local, regional and national delivery companies across the UK to deliver Amazon parcels to customers seven days a week. Deliveries will be made from the Amazon Logistics’ delivery station in Speke, Liverpool.
