Amazon Prime's one-hour delivery service launched in select London postal codes on Tuesday, and is expected to expand to additional cities across the U.K. by the end of the year.
Amazon previously rolled out Prime Now, its one-hour delivery service, in about 500 towns and select cities across the U.S. Now Prime members in London can order over 10,000 goods ranging from food to essential home products to Apple TVs, and have their order arrive within the hour.
Prime members are required to pay £79 ($99) per year for the service, which includes free two-day delivery on purchases over £20, free same-day delivery when eligible, cloud storage and access to the service's video library.
Amazon Prime customers who live in part of zone 1 in London can now use the one-hour service. These orders have to be at least £20, plus £6.99 per order for the rushed delivery charge.
To avoid the one-hour delivery charge, Prime Now customers can just wait past two hours to get their package with no extra shipping fees between 8 a.m. and 12 a.m., seven days a week.
Purchases can be made both on the web and through the Prime Now app.
Amazon Prime Now is available in the U.S. in select ZIP codes through Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as in Atlanta and Miami, among other cities.
