Written by: Peter Pham for www.foodbeast.com Amazon Has A ONE-HOUR Restaurant Delivery Service, Here’s What We Know
Amazon has spoiled us when it comes to getting online purchases within only a few days, some items even on the same day. Now, the largest online retailer in the United States will be testing a restaurant delivery system, NRN reports.
Amazon Prime Now members will now have the option of ordering thousands of items with a one hour delivery window. The Prime Now food delivery service is currently only available in Seattle, Amazon’s hometown.
Using the official Prime Now mobile app, customers in the city can order meals from local restaurants like Wild Ginger, Cactus, Skillet and Marination among others. Through the app, users can peruse the menu of the participating restaurants, place an order and pay using their Amazon accounts.
Sounds pretty painless and incredibly convenient, unless you’re our wallets. Amazon’s already dominated easy online shopping, now if we don’t have to go out for food we may never leave our bedrooms.
While the company didn’t say whether they ever plan to expand to cities other than Seattle, GeekWire reports that plans are in the works.
