Amazon Extends One-Hour Delivery To Prime Members In NYC

After announcing that it would extend one-hour delivery to consumers in the New York City area for last-minute holiday gift needs, Amazon has decided to make the service available year round.

Amazon has announced the launch of Prime Now, which will offer one-hour delivery on thousands of items to Prime members in New York City. Powered by Amazon’s network of fulfillment centers, Prime Now will give customers quick and easy access to essentials like paper towels, shampoo, toys and batteries.

Prime Now is available from 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Two-hour delivery is free and one-hour delivery costs $7.99 per order. A portion of Amazon’s new building on 34th Street in Manhattan will serve as a hub for delivery of Prime Now orders.


There is currently no word on whether the service will expand to other cities. However, Prime members can download the Prime Now app, which is available for iOS and Android devices, and will be notified when the service is available in their area.

“We’ve long felt that Amazon Prime is the best deal in the history of shopping and now it has gotten even better,” said Dave Clark, SVP of Worldwide Operations at Amazon. “Prime members in Manhattan are going to love this service and we cannot wait to roll out Prime Now to additional cities in 2015.”
