Online retail giant Amazon is speeding up its Same-Day Delivery program, with Prime members able to receive packages in hours.
About three million items that are marked ‘Today by’ can be delivered throughout the day to customers in Philadelphia, Phoenix, Orlando and Dallas.
Members can order as late as midnight and have it on their doorstep the next morning when they select the ‘Overnight by 8am’.
Amazon stores need-it-today items in facilities near to customers serving as mini-fulfilment centers optimized for faster click-to-delivery speeds.
Same-Day Delivery is free to Prime members on orders over US$35 or US2.99 for delivery on orders under US$35.
