Amazon’s one-hour Prime Now delivery arrives in London

Amazon Prime Now, the service that delivers goods to your door in just one hour, is now available in parts of central London. It’s the first time the service has been expanded to markets outside of the U.S.

Prime Now made its debut just six months ago in Manhattan, and has since launched in Dallas, Baltimore, and Miami. Now the service is taking on the U.K., but it will initially be available in “selected London postcodes,” which appear to be those included in zone 1, TechCrunch reports.

You can see if Prime Now is available where you are by visiting Amazon’s Prime Now webpage and entering your postcode. If your location is included, you’ll be able to order selected items from Amazon.co.uk and have them delivered to your door in an hour.

There are “thousands” of eligible products available in London, Amazon says, but you’ll have to spend at least £20 (approx. $31) to get the Prime Now option, which costs a further £6.99 (approx. $10.99) per order. Two-hour deliveries are also available at no extra cost between 8 a.m. and 12 a.m.

Prime Now is intended to be a super speedy delivery option for essential items like toilet paper, bottled water, coffee, and food — but the catalog of items available also includes things like LEGO, DVDs and Blu-rays, headphones, and even electrical items.

Prime Now is available through a dedicated app on Android and iOS, which you can download now from the App Store, Google Play, and of course, the Amazon Appstore.
