From next day delivery to tales of experimenting with drone delivery, Amazon have been making strives to provide the fastest possibly delivery times for a while now.

This week, the online retailer announced it has brought its one hour delivery service to London. After months of tinkering and fine tuning the service in the states, UK Prime members can order from Amazon and have their products with them within an hour.

Of course there are some rules to Prime Now as the service is known. With 10,000 products to choose from, you’ll need to download Amazon’s standalone Prime Now app. 60 minute deliveries currently aren’t available through Amazon’s main app. You’ll need to spend a minimum of £20 on your order and pay a £6.99 shipping charge.

Prime Now’s massive catalogue of electronics, groceries, books and other goods are currently stored at Amazon’s fulfilment centre in East London with the company looking to open more storage warehouses as they slowly expand.

If you want your order super fast but don’t fancy paying the almost 7 quid delivery you can have your order delivered within 2 hours between 8am and midnight for free.

Prime Now is currently only available in London but the company say they’re trialling the service in other UK cities. You can find the Prime Now app in Apple’s App Store and Android’s Play Store now. Type LONDONNOW at the checkout for £20 off your first £50 order.
