Amazon.com today announced the launch of Prime Now in Singapore, which offers free two-hour delivery on tens of thousands of items right from the smartphone.
Customers can shop on the Prime Now app for everything on their list from eggs, cold beer and ice cream to baby strollers, toys, and consumer electronics. Singapore favourites such as Tiger Balm, Milo and MamyPoko diapers as well as products from iconic brands including L’Oreal, Pampers and Samsung are also available.
“We are excited to introduce the busy people in Singapore to this convenient, ultra-fast delivery solution to get more time back to do the things they love,” said Aarif Nakhooda, director of Prime Now Asia-Pacific. “Prime Now is powered by Amazon’s more than 20 years of operational and technological excellence and hundreds of Singapore’s talented and skilled associates.”
Prime Now is an exclusive service for members of Amazon Prime, a membership programme to launch in Singapore soon with additional benefits to come. For a limited time, Prime Now will be available in Singapore to try without a Prime membership.
Since launching in December 2014 in New York, Prime Now has expanded to more than 50 cities in nine countries including Berlin, London, Madrid, Rome and Tokyo.
Customers need to download the Prime Now app, available on iOS and Android devices. Prime Now in Singapore is available from 10:00 to 22:00, seven days a week; and offers free two-hour delivery on orders of S$40 (USD$29.50) or more. For orders under S$40, two-hour delivery is S$5.99. Customers can also get their Prime Now order with one-hour delivery for S$9.99.
