Axios – Amazon’s latest Prime announcement shows the company is taking a big step towards Amazon Prime members being able to buy products from their own website.
Amazon.com will begin accepting orders from members on Thursday, with an option to choose a shipping address and a shipping method.
Amazon has also added a “Buy Now” button on the Amazon app that allows members to order items before they are released in stores.
The company’s new service also lets members purchase items from their Amazon Prime membership card.
Prime members have a choice of three types of shipping options: Amazon Prime Express, Amazon Prime, and Amazon Prime Now.
Amazon says the Prime Now service is more convenient for Prime members, and is currently available to members who have an Amazon Prime account and Prime membership cards.
It offers free shipping on eligible purchases of $99 or more, as well as the ability to cancel orders for $50.
Prime Now customers can choose from a range of shipping methods including the free shipping option for $0.99 and Prime Now Express shipping for $9.99.
Prime customers can also add their Prime membership to their Amazon account, which allows them to pay for items from Prime, as long as the Prime membership is active and the purchase is within 30 days.
Amazon also has a $99 annual subscription for Prime.
The Prime Now option costs $14.99 per year for Prime customers who have a Prime membership and Prime card.
Amazon’s new Prime Now offer is available to Prime members at no additional cost.
