Seattle: Online retail giant Amazon has ventured into restaurant delivery. The firm has launched an exclusive restaurant delivery app Prime Now, through which it claims to provide free-delivery within one hour.
Once an order is placed, Amazon delivery partners deliver the food in an hour or less. Amazon Restaurants offers customers transparent pricing—there are no menu markups or hidden service fees and delivery on all orders is free for Prime members. If a customer finds a restaurant item that is priced higher than the regularly-priced item on the restaurant’s current online menu within 24 hours of placing the order, Amazon will refund the customer the price of the item.
Prime members can download the Prime Now app or visit the new Prime Now website to enter their zip code and see if the service is available in their area. In zip codes where restaurant delivery is available, customers will see Restaurants on the home page.
