Amazon.com is offering one hour delivery of wine, beer and spirits in a U.S. city for the first time through its Prime Now program in an effort for further expand its Global, yet local, online delivery offerings.
Amazon's 1-hour alcohol delivery service is relatively limited - the company also provides quick alcohol delivery in London (US) only. The online alcohol delivery side of the business is limited to just online wine delivery, typically next day.
The Seattle-based e-commerce giant is testing the online alcohol delivery market, which is estimated to increase to $1.4 billion in sales by 2020, according to IBISWorld.
Two-hour delivery is free through Prime Now and one-hour service is $7.99.
